England ended their qualifying campaign for Euro 2020 with a comfortable 4-0 victory against Kosovo. In front of a packed crowd in Pristina, goals from Harry Winks, Harry Kane, Marcus Rashford and Mason Mount earned Gareth Southgate’s side a seventh win from their eight qualifying games; the defeat to the Czech Republic being the only slip-up in an otherwise successful campaign. Both Winks and Mount netted their first senior goals, while Kane also became the first ever England player to score in every qualifier with his goal. Here’s how we rated the England players.
Nick Pope - 6.5
Dealt with Kosovo’s attempts on goal well in what was an assured display from the Burnley man.
Trent Alexander-Arnold - 6
Didn’t threaten down the right-hand side as he so often does for club and country, and his end product was poor at times when he found himself further forward.
Harry Maguire - 6
Another who wasn’t at his best defensively but his work on the ball was good as usual.
Tyrone Mings - 6
Was caught as the deepest England defender quite often while the other three were pushing a higher line, and didn’t look overly comfortable.
Ben Chilwell - 7
Another good performance from Chilwell who always looked a threat going forwards. His attacking nature meant he was caught out once or twice defensively though.
Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain - 7
Found some useful pockets of space in midfield in his 70 minute performance before being replaced, and played a key role with the assist for Winks’ opening goal.
Declan Rice - 6.5
Kept things ticking over nicely in midfield alongside Oxlade-Chamberlain and Winks, and tracked opposition runners well.
Harry Winks - 8
Arguably the best performer on the night. Winks worked tirelessly throughout and thoroughly deserved his first senior England goal.
Callum Hudson-Odoi - 5.5
A tough night for Hudson-Odoi who struggled to make a positive impact. The winger was sloppy in possession and looked rather indecisive at times before being replaced early in the second-half.
Raheem Sterling - 7
Back in the side after missing the win over Montenegro and despite not being at his best, produced two important contributions for England. His deflected driven cross fell to Kane for the second goal, while his pacy burst through midfield allowed him to slot Rashford in for the third.
Harry Kane - 6.5
Took his goal well to become the first England player in history to score in every qualifying group game. Capitalised on a late slip to play Mount through for the fourth goal.
Marcus Rashford - 7.5
Took his goal excellently and made an incredibly positive impact after replacing Hudson-Odoi in the second-half.
Mason Mount - 6.5
Worked hard after replacing Oxlade-Chamberlain with 20 minutes remaining, and was clearly delighted after netting his first England goal.
Fikayo Tomori - 6
A late cameo for Tomori who didn’t have enough time to make a real impact.
