England player ratings vs USA: Harry Maguire the best player but Harry Kane fails to deliver


England had been unable to safe their place within the last-16 after solely getting a goalless draw in opposition to a cussed USA facet.

Gareth Southgate was unable to vary the end in England’s favour from the sidelines, and so they now want a outcome in opposition to Wales on Tuesday to progress.

Sportsmail’s CHRIS SUTTON provides his verdict on how England gamers carried out on the Al Bayt Stadium in Qatar.

ENGLAND (4-3-3)

Jordan Pickford – 5/10 

England’s defence wasn’t defending their goalkeeper. Pickford will need to have had flashbacks to a couple video games with Everton! Simply kidding, however Pickford can thank his crossbar for stopping Christian Pulisic from denying him his first clear sheet of this World Cup.

Kieran Trippier – 4.5/10

Lucky when Weston McKennie blazed over an excellent likelihood to open the scoring with Trippier not marking his man. Then fortunate to see Pulisic – or ‘Captain America’ as he’s identified within the States – smash his shot in opposition to the crossbar. Difficult evening for Trippier.

John Stones – 5/10 

Stones and Maguire needed to beware that American hustle and bustle when enjoying out from the again. However England’s centre backs had been always enjoying ‘passies’ with each other. That was barely irritating to see once we know they’re each good with the ball. 

Man United's Harry Maguire earned his 50th cap and was England's best player in the match

Harry Maguire – 6/10

Did a pleasant impression of Lionel Messi early on when dribbling into the opposition field. Most likely acquired a nosebleed from being so excessive up the pitch! This wasn’t England’s evening however each time a cross got here into the field, Maguire was there to clear. Our greatest participant, simply. 

Luke Shaw – 5/10

A lot of the United States’ possibilities had been coming from Shaw’s facet of the pitch, together with the cross which led to McKennie’s missed alternative. Proper again Sergino Dest was getting ahead and proper winger Timothy Weah was troubling Shaw, like they did to Wales earlier this week.

Jude Bellingham – 4.5/10

Worrying sight when England’s 19-year-old midfielder took a heavy blow from Haji Wright – how dare you damage our prodigy! – however he shook off that knock. The USA received the midfield battle right here. Bellingham was restricted and sacrificed for Henderson in a tactical change from Southgate. 

Mason Mount – 4.5/10

Mount is tidy in possession however he’s tenacious out of it, too. That’s why Southgate begins him so typically in his engine room. However he struggled to have any form of impression right here, apart from one snap-shot which was saved by Matt Turner shortly earlier than the break.

Declan Rice – 4.5/10

England’s nightwatchman. Bellingham and Mount are given licence to get additional ahead whereas Rice stays again as a security internet. However the defensive midfielder who impressed essentially the most on this match was tireless Tyler Adams of Leeds. He was right here, there and all over the place. Rice wasn’t. 

Bukayo Saka – 4/10

England seemed like having pleasure down the right-hand facet early on. However as the sport grew, Saka’s affect waned. Unlucky that he couldn’t wrap his foot round Shaw’s low cross to attain. Two objectives in opposition to Iran in an ideal efficiency however not his evening on this event. 

Harry Kane missed three opportunities to score, but took a while to warm up at Euro 2020 too

Harry Kane – 5/10

First likelihood to attain was blocked by Walker Zimmerman. Second likelihood was a bicycle kick that by no means got here to be. Third likelihood was a stoppage-time header.

Nonetheless no World Cup objectives, sadly, however then he waited till the knockout levels to get going at Euro 2020, keep in mind!

Raheem Sterling – 4/10

There have been occasions when the US had been capable of bypass Sterling and Co’s excessive press too simply. As England continued to battle to take management of the sport, you questioned how lengthy Southgate would wait earlier than altering the entrance line.

Lastly, he was hooked for Grealish.


Gareth Southgate – 4/10

Went with an unchanged XI for the primary time for the reason that 2018 World Cup. Similar workforce, similar formation, however not the identical dominance that England exerted over Iran earlier this week. The USA had been higher total and Southgate is certain to make modifications to his beginning line-up for Wales after this stalemate.

Jack Grealish (for Sterling, 68) – 5.5/10

England followers might have felt Southgate ought to have made this alteration earlier than the 68th minute. Lastly, after greater than an hour of watching us labour in opposition to a hard-working United States workforce, Grealish got here on to attempt to dazzle us. The odd inventive second. 

Jordan Henderson (for Bellingham, 68) – 5.5/10 

Introduced on as Southgate seemed to achieve some sense of management within the midfield as a result of the US had been successful that battle for too lengthy. Bellingham was the unlucky sacrifice. Disgrace he had an off evening because the England teenager is such a expertise. 

Marcus Rashford (for Saka, 78) – 5.5/10

Saka did not do sufficient and the stage was set for Rashford to grow to be England’s hero. These are the moments that the perimeter gamers await at World Cups. Rashford did not have lengthy to stretch his legs right here, nevertheless. Tried to twist one into the nook however Turner collected it safely.

Jesus Valenzuela – 6/10

 Not a terrific deal for the Venezuelan to do. Probably the most fascinating side was he solely added a single minute of stoppage time to the primary half! That should be a report for this World Cup! An issue-free evening for the officers.

United States (4-3-3): Turner 7; Dest 7 (Moore 78), Zimmerman 7, Ream 7, Robinson 7; McKennie 7.5 (Aaronson 78), Adams 8, Musah 7.5; Weah 7 (Reyna 83), Wright 7 (Sargent 83), Pulisic 7.5

Subs (not used): Ferreira, Horvath, De La Torre, Lengthy, Morris, Roldan, Carter-Vickers, Yedlin, Acosta, Johnson, Scally


Gregg Berhalter – 7/10

Kudos to the US supervisor. They received the tactical battle and England seemed fearful of his workforce.They deserved a draw on the very least. Most likely extra if we’re being truthful. Now Berhalter’s facet are in with an excellent likelihood of escaping the group. That they had England’s quantity and that was regarding for Southgate.

And eventually…

The woodwork – 9

England’s saviour. Most likely their finest performer because it denied Pulisic what the US really feel would have been a worthy opener and potential winner. All hail the crossbar!
