Harry Kane watched a hat-trick since England thrashed Bulgaria 4-0 within their own European Qualifier, but who caught the eye?
Jordan Pickford – 7
A quiet day for the Everton guy, but he did make one vital rescue soon after the breakup, downing a Bulgaria equaliser to be prevented by a Marcelinho chance. He landed with athletically tipping the over the bar, Harry Maguire in trouble with one loose pass in the half, however, responded.
Kieran Trippier – 7
Caught out of position on a few occasions in the first half although his overlapping runs proved to be a source of danger to Southgate’s guys – as shown by the simple fact that he needed more touches of the ball.
Michael Keane – 7
Preferred into Joe Gomez and Tyrone Mings along with Maguire at the heart of England’s defence. Booked from the first half to get a poorly-timed challenge on Marcelinho, but functioned.
Harry Maguire – 7
Another good performance from a player who has become a true mainstay of Southgate’s defence. That the backline was commanded by him well and used the ball , also, completing 88 including 65 in the Bulgaria half – of his 91 moves.
Danny Rose – 7
His former Tottenham team-mate, like Trippier , he caused Bulgaria difficulties at the trunk and got forward well. He did not shirk his defensive duties, possibly, with most of Bulgaria’s greatest moments coming down the flank. Booked for one slightly over-zealous struggle in the final stages.
Declan Rice – 8
Just his appearance for the senior side of England but seems at home at the midfield of Southgate. Showed awareness that is defensive in front of the back , making more neater and more interceptions than any of their team-mates. Completed 95 of the 98 passes.
Jordan Henderson – 6
Do not do much wrong however, didn’t offer possibly, despite playing since England’s most advanced midfielder occasionally. Connected sweetly with a single Rose cross in the first half but his effort flew wide. Replaced by Mason Mount .
Ross Barkley – 8
Born some moments of ability, completing five star over the duration of the 90 minutes and creating four scoring chances. Not everything came – there were groans from the crowd if he over-hit one pass in the next half – but he tried to make things happen.
Raheem Sterling – 9
England player together with Bulgaria defenders, in the first half not able to keep up with him. Showed great expectancy to permeate Plamen Iliev pass and tee up the opener of Harry Kane, and was subsequently in the ideal place at the ideal time if the favour was returned by his team-mate after the break.
Marcus Rashford – 7
Quiet at the first half in comparison to Sterling, but appreciated more of the ball after the rest, showing speed to acquire the punishment for the next goal of England and producing some passes. Moved following the withdrawal of Kane into the middle but had openings.
Harry Kane – 9
England hero. Alert to start the scoring from Sterling’s cut-back and finished his hat-trick using two excellent penalties in the second half. Additionally played a role in Sterling’s goal, intercepting a Bulgaria pass before providing the help and charging.
Mason Mount – 6
His meaningful shot on goal flew high and wide, although showed plenty of endeavour on his introduction, buzzing across the Bulgaria half.
Jadon Sancho – 6
Showed flashes of his own skill but didn’t have a massive amount of time to generate an impact. Wasted one counter-attacking chance with a minute of poor control.
Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain – 6
A satisfying moment for your Liverpool guy as he left his first England appearance but time to make an impression.
