England thrashed Bulgaria 6-0 in Sofia tonight in a Euro 2020 qualifying match overshadowed by persistent racist abuse from the stands. Here is how the visitors rated on a dark night for European football.
Jordan Pickford: 6
Saved what came his way, which was very little in an embarrassingly one-sided match. Some wayward kicking.
Kieran Trippier: 7
With little to do in defence, got forward to good effect and exploited space on the right wing as Sterling drifted inside.
Harry Maguire: 6
A rare outing on right side of central defence but could hardly have wished for an easier ride than this game.
Tyrone Mings: 6
Clumsy early booking aside, a comfortable debut on a night he may remember for all the wrong reasons.
Ben Chilwell: 7
Underlined why he should be first choice left-back with solid defending augmented with dangerous overlapping runs.
Harry Winks: 7
Classy display which showcased his range of passing. Pin-point crossfield pass to Trippier in build-up to third goal.
Jordan Henderson: 6
Looked more at ease back in a three-man midfield following ineffective display in defeat to Czech Republic.
Ross Barkley: 9
Hungry to prove a point on return to side and at heart of much of England’s good work. Two well deserved goals.
Raheem Sterling: 9
Scored twice and linked up well with Kane again. Courageous and dignified in the face of disgusting racist abuse.
Harry Kane: 8
Superb ball in for Barkley’s second and laid on Sterling’s brace. Late goal a reward for captain’s unselfish display.
Marcus Rashford: 8
Looked anything but a player in a rut with an explosive opening goal and persistent penetrating runs on and off ball.
Mason Mount (Barkley 72) 5: Bright and energetic but made little impact.
Jadon Sancho (Sterling 72) 5: One chance was saved in a low-key cameo.
Callum Wilson (Rashford 76) 6: Bright and nimble around box. Hit post.
