How did the players fare in England's Euros quarter-final win over Switzerland?

ENGLAND (3-4-2-1):

7 Pickford: Was almost embarrassed by Shaqiri’s corner, but made a crucial spot-kick save from Akanji

6 Walker: Couldn’t prevent Embolo from scoring at the back post, but looked comfortable as part of a back three

7 Stones: Defended well for the whole of the game – has been one of England’s best players in Germany

8 Konsa: Did superbly as he replaced the suspended Guehi – made a number of vital blocks in the 18-yard box

8 SAKA: Was England’s standout attacker – scored a great equaliser and held his nerve in the shoot-out

6 Rice: Didn’t do a lot wrong at the heart of midfield, but might have been more positive with his passing

7 Mainoo: Was England’s most positive player for big chunks of the game – calm and composed on the ball

4 Trippier: It’s not his fault, but he continues to look badly out of position when stationed on the left-hand side

6 Bellingham: Didn’t threaten the Swiss goal prior to the shootout, but scored with his penalty

5 Foden: The game largely passed him by – failed to threaten the Swiss goal before heading off late on

5 Kane: His lack of mobility meant he was unable to make an impact before he was taken off in extra-time


6 Eze (for Trippier, 78): Made a positive impact as he attacked down the left-hand side

6 Shaw (for Konsa, 78): Proved his fitness and must have a good chance of starting in the semi-final

7 Palmer (for Mainoo, 78): Added some much-needed energy to England’s attacking play

Toney (for Kane, 109)

Alexander-Arnold (for Foden, 115)
