England player ratings

Joe Hart
Nearly caught out at near post twice from corners. Barely a save to make though
5

Glen Johnson
Failed to block Cavani’s cross for first goal, but redeemed himself with excellent ball to Rooney
5

Gary Cahill
Cool head and generally positioned himself well, but caught flat-footed for Suarez’s second
5

Phil Jagielka
Never recovered from an unsure start. Didn’t read Suarez’s movement for either goal
4

Leighton Baines
Excellent outlet on the left and grew into the game, but naive defensively at times
5

Steven Gerrard
Misplaced header allowed Suarez in for second goal. Struggled to command midfield
4

Jordan Henderson
Strong in possession and rarely misplaced a pass. Excellent discipline, but wasted deep
6

Raheem Sterling
Jinked through the defence more than once but no end product. Replaced by Barkley
5

Danny Welbeck
A bright start, linking up well with Sturridge, but faded as game went on and replaced by Lallana
4

Wayne Rooney
Looked England’s greatest goal threat and made great run to tap in Johnson’s cross
7

Daniel Sturridge
Too sharp for Uruguay defenders, particularly Godin. Went close to scoring twice
6

Substitutes
Barkley (65 for Sterling): good distribution to wide areas. Lallana (71 for Welbeck): added little when introduced. Lambert (89 for Henderson): not enough time.
