England vs Belgium, player ratings: Who impressed as the Three Lions conquered the worlds top-ranked side
Jordan Pickford 6
Beaten by Lukaku’s penalty but saved well from a firm De Bruyne shot. After a nervy few weeks, this was a more steady performance.
Kyle Walker 8
Recovery speed was crucial in shutting down Belgian attacks, and he was alert to danger within the penalty box. Drove forward on occasion.
Eric Dier 5
Rattled and bullied by Lukaku in the first half, diving in needlessly to concede the early penalty. Improved considerably after the break.
Harry Maguire 6
Has had his troubles on and off the pitch but this was a more understated showing. Helped England to deal with Lukaku after the break.
Trent Alexander-Arnold 5
Unable to bomb forward as he does so often for Liverpool, especially with Castagne and Carrasco pushing aggressively in the other direction.
Jordan Henderson 6
Won the (arguably) dubious penalty that allowed Rashford to equalise. Struggled early on but provided energy and drive after half-time.
Declan Rice 7

Booked for a late challenge and was occasionally sloppy in possession. Improved hugely in the second half, showing his adventurous side.
Kieran Trippier 6
Does not look entirely comfortable on the left, often coming back inside with the ball. Battled tirelessly, though, and was defensively solid.
Mason Mount 7

After struggling to find space in the first half, he roamed more after the break and popped up on the left for his deflected winner.
Dominic Calvert-Lewin 6
Forced to feed off scraps for much of the game but did well with the little service he got. Aerial threat made Belgium nervous.
Marcus Rashford 7
Emphatic penalty brought England level and he provided much of their attacking threat. Could have scored a late third.
Phillips (Henderson 66)
Kane (Calvert-Lewin 66)
James (Alexander-Arnold 79)
Sancho (Mount 89)
Simon Mignolet 6
Blameless for both England goals and had little to do beyond picking the ball out of his net on two occasions.
Toby Alderweireld 5
Unfortunate, perhaps, that Mount’s shot deflected off his boot and looped into the top corner. Rashford was a menace down his side.
Jason Denayer 6
Very few of Belgium’s problems came down his flank, with Mount kept quiet for long spells and England pushing down the left instead.
Dedryck Boyata 6
Forced to recover from his own mistake after challenging for the same ball as Alderweireld. A fine physical battle with Calvert-Lewin.
Thomas Meunier 6
Threatened throughout the first half and almost scored on the volley. Silly pull on Henderson allowed Rashford to equalise from the spot.
Axel Witsel 5
Played the simple passes and tried to manage those spaces between midfield and defence. Never looked likely to hurt England.
Youri Tielemans 7

Unleashed a brilliant crossfield pass in the early exchanges and helped Belgium to control the tempo before England came back strong.
Timothy Castagne 6
Started the game brightly, rampaging forward and ensuring that Alexander-Arnold could not cause problems. Always willing to attack.
Kevin De Bruyne 6
Floated around in the first half, pulling England out of shape. Could have scored, too, but lost influence before his surprise substitution.
Romelu Lukaku 7
A totally dominant force in the first half. He fully deserved his goal and should have had an assist. Faded after the break.
Yannick Carrasco 6
Denied an early goal by a late offside flag and dragged a poor shot wide. A constant threat but his finishing let him down.
