England made light work of Malta in their Euro 2024 qualifying clash. Find the England Player Ratings below.
Jordan Pickford – n/a
Never had to make a save all night. walked around his penalty area well.
Kieran Trippier – 6
Due to Trent Alexander-Arnold’s open role in front of him, he remained essentially where he was at the back, where he was solid. a few reliable set-pieces were delivered.
Marc Guehi – 7
Composed when in control in a game where his on-the-ball skills were more evident than off-it. Gareth Southgate will be happy with his performance, especially after switching to left-back to make room for Tyrone Mings.
Harry Maguire – 7
Guehi demonstrated his skill with the ball and how easily England can assemble attacks from the back. Several great passes were made to choose the forward possibilities, especially after the half.
Luke Shaw – 6
spent more time in the opposing half than his own and had an opportunity to set up Maddison for a goal just before halftime. Within an hour, withdrew.
Trent Alexander-Arnold – 8
The highlight of the performance, a complete 180 from the one previous occasion Southgate started him in midfield. With a beautiful pass for the first goal, he dismantled the Malta defenders. He then scored a stunning goal for the second goal and assisted in the third. even ended up playing for a small time as a 10 to earn the highest of the England Player Ratings.
Jordan Henderson – 7
Clean, efficient, and eager to win the ball back in midfield, they helped to keep England on the offensive. Typical Henderson performance.
Declan Rice – 7
In the crowded midfield, showed off his deft side by completing 62 of 70 passes in order to overcome Malta’s low block. His drive’s rebound landed to Kane, who was awarded the first penalty.
Bukayo Saka – 7
Always energetic and responsible for forcing Apap’s error in the opening goal, but occasionally required greater quality given the volume of ball he saw. Just before halftime, just short of a fourth, he was forced to leave the game with a knock, fortunately, nothing major.
Harry Kane – 7
He was mostly on his own in the opening session, but he did what he does well by keeping attentive to win a penalty, which he dutifully converted. He missed a chance to score England’s 57th goal after halftime which was uncharacteristically bad.
James Maddison – 7
Came into the game after a slow start, contributing to goals two and three, culminating in a great feint and spin in the lead-up to Trent’s incredible goal. was energetic after the break till his exit.
