England 2-1 Poland: Player ratings for Gareth Southgate’s side

Nick Pope Powerless to stop Poland’s leveller. Concerns over his distribution persist after a shaky early clearance. 5

Kyle Walker Defensively sound but made little impact in the final third. Reece James, who came off the bench late on, is a better crosser. 6

John Stones Costly dithering in possession gifted Jakub Moder the chance to equalise. At least he made the winner for Maguire. 4

Harry Maguire Injected urgency by bringing the ball out of defence. Brilliant late finish to seal the win. 7

Ben Chilwell Desperate to shine after replacing Luke Shaw at left-back but looked vulnerable when Poland attacked after equalising. 6

Declan Rice The 22-year-old impressed again at the heart of midfield. Positionally astute, strong in the tackle and eager to drive forward. 7 (man of the match)

Kalvin Phillips The Leeds midfielder offered balance out of possession but many will question whether his passing was quick enough. 6

Mason Mount His final pass was off on a few occasions but he kept probing for openings and running at defenders. 7

Phil Foden The youngster was dangerous at times on the right wing, but lacked a cutting edge. Wasted a decent chance. 6

Harry Kane The captain scored an emphatic first-half penalty but needed better service. Had few sights of goal. 6

Raheem Sterling The Manchester City winger excelled, using his pace to torment Michal Helik, who fouled him for Kane’s penalty. 7

Subs Reece James (for Foden, 86) 6; Dominic Calvert-Lewin (for Kane, 89) 6; Jesse Lingard (for Sterling, 89) 6
