England player ratings

Paul Robinson

Waited until the 40th minute before having his first shot of note to save. Failed to cleanly collect one second-half effort, but was otherwise assured. 6

Micah Richards

Surged forward early in the match and offered a real attacking threat before showing his adaptability by slotting in at centre-back during the second half. 7

Sol Campbell

Any concern about his ability to play twice in five days will have been eased by the undemanding nature of Saturday's match. Looked particularly strong in the air. 6

Rio Ferdinand

Rarely tested during what was little more than a glorified training session and substituted to protect him ahead of Wednesday's match in Russia. 7

Ashley Cole

Despite his cross for England's third goal, McClaren will be wishing that he rested Cole, though it would be harsh to apportion blame for an unfortunate injury. 6

Shaun Wright-Phillips

Began well on his return from a hamstring injury before fading somewhat. His partnership with Richards continues to thrive and they combined for the first goal. 7

Gareth Barry

Another understated, but hugely valuable performance. Sat deep, helped England assert control and provided a real balance and solidity to the team. 7

Steven Gerrard

Led the team in the absence of John Terry and appears liberated alongside Barry, at the moment he is at his penetrating best. 9

Joe Cole

Doing his best to live up to the 'Zizou' nickname with some wonderful displays of skill and provided the cross for Rooney's goal. 7

Wayne Rooney

Slightly fortunate with his goal, but will be relieved to have ended the recent competitive drought for England. Faultless effort and commitment from start to finish. 7

Michael Owen

A largely frustrating afternoon. Narrowly caught offside on several occasions and had to drop deep more often than usual. Questions persist about his partnership with Rooney. 5

Steve McClaren

Deserves credit for sticking with Barry alongside Gerrard, but must now decide whether to use Frank Lampard and field a three-man central midfield in Russia. 7


Joleon Lescott staked his claim for the left-back slot with Ashley Cole missing Wednesday's game ? he was defensively solid, but provided little natural width.

There you go Stevie G gets a 9 !

I dont understand the people slating McClaren for this game, how could the lineup have been better, save for the left back spot? we played the formation we all wanted, 442 without lamps+gerrard like everybody wanted and with the flavour of the month, Gareth! This was purely down to the players losing the focus. Gerrard hasnt been on form for a while now and his hellish miss in front of goal was indicative of that. Even McClarens subs werent a bad idea, lob on the target man and crosser with 15 mins to go to play long ball... its the only thing he could really have done...

Its the English Media who keep the squad from truly letting free of their demons and playing shackle-less... build em up to break em down. great.

Probably below 0%.

If you want it published then try and change Gerrards name to Lampard, that ought to do the trick.


true, true

saw this on the "your view" thing

(Sheffield Wednesday fan) says...

Gutted, we're not out yet but it's unlikely Russia will lose to Israel, especially with a managerial wonder like Guus Hiddink. Got to agree with C. Brown who says Mourinho should come in. We need someone with a personality after having miserable McClaren playing the same let downs with the only option to spice up the game Stewart Downing and Crouch. I'd prefer Allardyce to Mourinho but he should have taken over from Sven really and he's got a job to do in Geordieland now. Steven Gerrard is almost always a let down for England, certainly no better than Lampard. Though I dare say that the idiots booing at the end of the previous match effected today's result. Some thoughtless "fans", a barely recovered striker, several under-achieving (at international level) players who show very little effort and far less talent than at their club team.. add to that two goalkeepers who can't catch, a team that often plays backwards and a tactically poor manager with no personality or enthusiasm. Was going to wish Scotland good luck but they've just lost to Georgia

I have never seen a better example of latent homsexual desire than that. Could Stevie's boyish looks be behind the press's adulation of him?

Quoted from John Cross in the Mirror who has been printing derogatory stuff about CFC at every opportunity:

Steven Gerrard 6/10 "His work rate was outstanding. England's stand in captain seemed to be everywhere. But he missed a sitter at 1-0 which would have put England in total control and knocked the stuffing out of the Russians"

Same pillock gave Joe and SWP 5/10 each.

Support Liverpool by any chance Mr. Cross? I seem tro remember you tipped them for the title this season too.
