Eng­land man mark­ing

The Sunday Telegraph - Sport - - Football - By Sam Dean

Jor­dan Pick­ford

Did well to even get a hand to Saul’s opener, help­less for Spain’s sec­ond. En­cour­aged and be­rated his de­fend­ers equally.


Joe Gomez

Clearly not out of his depth at this level, but South­gate will need to him to be tighter in pos­ses­sion. Launched into naive first-half chal­lenge.


John Stones

Sets the tone when Eng­land have the ball but found things harder as Spain dic­tated the tempo. Wrongly booked for a fine re­cov­ery tackle.


Harry Maguire

Cre­ated a chance for Kane with a trade­mark tow­er­ing header. His link­ing with Stones is still Eng­land’s best way of mov­ing the ball into mid­field.


Kieran Trip­pier

Late chal­lenge on Alonso sum­marised Eng­land’s strug­gles but his de­liv­ery re­mains dan­ger­ous. Pro­vides a valu­able out-ball for the back three.


Jesse Lin­gard

Dis­ap­point­ingly quiet as Spain dom­i­nated mid­field. Un­able to make dart­ing runs but did well to pick out Rash­ford with an ex­cel­lent cross.


Jor­dan Hen­der­son

Con­sis­tently un­der pres­sure as he was hounded by the Span­ish at­tack­ers. Gen­er­ally tidy but oc­ca­sion­ally guilty of forc­ing the for­ward pass.


Dele Alli

Over­cooked a pass to Kane af­ter a pow­er­ful run, and would have liked to have seen more of the ball. Could not get close enough to Kane.


Luke Shaw

Won­der­ful cross to cre­ate Rash­ford’s opener was a sign of his con­fi­dence, although reck­less at times. Car­ried off af­ter a wor­ry­ing blow to the head.


Mar­cus Rash­ford

Scored with vir­tu­ally his first touch of the game and pro­vided the di­rect threat that hurt Spain. De­nied a sec­ond by a bril­liant save from De Gea.


Harry Kane

Still not at his sharpest. De­layed when the ball fell to him in the first half and al­lowed Ro­drigo to sneak in front for the Span­ish sec­ond



Danny Rose (for Shaw, 53 min) Eric Dier (for Hen­der­son, 64 min) Danny Wel­beck
