Sturridge had a game to forget in an England shirt…
England player ratings
- 01 Hart – 8
Well done, Hart. Played really well, and made three good saves. Had a dodgy moment in the second half, but it didn’t lead to a goal, so we can forgive him!
- 02 Walker – 5
Poor final delivery, and took a nightmare freekick in the first half.
- 03 Cole (Gibbs – 53′ ) – 7 & 5
Cole was good, while Gibbs was fairly indifferent.
- 08 Cleverley (Wilshere – 64′ ) 5 & 5
Cleverly got totally dominated by Toni Kroos in the middle of the park, and got showed how it’s really done by the world-class German
- 05 Smalling – 6
Didn’t do anything to prove he’s an international player.
- 06 Jagielka – 8
England’s best defender on the night.
- 11 Townsend – 8
Another industrious performance down the left. Hit the post with a thunderbolt, too.
- 04 Gerrard (Henderson – 56′ ) – 6 & 4
Gerrard started well but faded, while Henderson was non-existent.
- 09 Sturridge – 4
A selfish, terrible performance from the Liverpool man. England will hope he can find his club form in an England shirt in time for the World Cup.
- 10 Rooney (Barkley – 71′ ) – 7 & 5
Rooney toiled and made some nice passes, while Barkley lost the ball far too many times on the edge of the German area.
- 07 Lallana (Lambert – 76′ ) – 7 & 5
Lallana played well, and is skilful in possession of the football. Lambert is probably not really an England player, in all honesty.
