How did the players fare in England's 2-0 win over Ukraine?

ENGLAND (4-2-3-1):

6 Pickford: Will not have many easier days in the whole of his career – did not have to make a single meaningful save

7 Walker: Kept the door locked down England’s right and used the ball effectively when he had it

7 Stones: Was never really extended defensively with Ukraine’s attacks breaking down long before they reached the 18-yard box

7 Maguire: Poised and assured at the heart of the back four, although might well feel he should have scored with a late header that flew over

8 Chilwell: Proved a more-than-capable deputy for Shaw as he made a series of effective breaks down the left flank

6 Rice: Rarely had to break out of a trot as Ukraine’s midfielders failed to ask any serious questions of him

7 Henderson: Combined effectively with Saka down the England right and delivered some good balls into the box

8 SAKA: Capped an excellent attacking display with a superb strike that doubled England’s lead shortly before the break

7 Bellingham: Continues to develop into a world-class central midfielder – has changed the complexion of England’s midfield by playing further forward

6 Maddison: Finally made his first international start, but wasn’t really able to produce a telling moment despite seeing plenty of the ball

7 Kane: Missed some chances in the first half, but still weighed in with his 55th international goal to break the deadlock
