Joe Hart 8
Two excellent saves from Seferovic, one with his feet and another reflex tip over. Played part in attack too, releasing Sterling with a smart early kick in the first half

Fabian Delph 7
Booked within nine minutes but calmed down and posed threat with and without ball in Swiss half. Unlucky not to win penalty

John Stones 6
Didn’t always look as comfortable as his defensive team-mates. At times caught out of position, but got away with it

Jack Wilshere 7
Rusty first 20 minutes when caught on ball but kept trying to make things happen and struck up a promising rapport with Rooney

Gary Cahill 9
Showed superb athleticism to scurry back and hook Drmic’s shot off the line, John Terry-style, after the Swiss substitute had rounded Hart. Solid throughout

Raheem Sterling 9
Terrorised Switzerland all night. Failure to apply final ball was rectified in second half with key roles in both England goals

Phil Jones 7
A mixed bag. Great interception followed by suicidal pass that sent Swiss through; clumsy challenge on Seferovic but then drew fine save with a header

Danny Welbeck 9
Willing runner, as ever, but also two clinical finishes. First cannoned off the shin but second was ruthless. Icing on cake of front three

Leighton Baines 7
Not at his composed or dangerous best, but largely kept Shaqiri at bay and made vital clearances as Swiss pressed

Wayne Rooney 7
Looked more at home with new system and without ball-hungry Sturridge in attack. Two snapshots but no clear sight of goal

Jordan Henderson 8
Barely caught eye in possession but oiled wheels of exciting new diamond system with 90 minutes of selfless midfield running

Substitutes
Milner (Wilshere, 73) 7: effective shift in front of defence to close game out; Jagielka (Jones, 77) 6: very adequate replacement for hamstrung Jones; Lambert (Rooney, 89) 7: cleverly teed up Welbeck’s second in briefest of cameos.
