England player ratings vs Denmark: Sterling superb and Shaw lively as Euro 2020 final reached

Man Utd and Manchester City players shone as England booked their place in the final of the European Championship with victory over Denmark on Wednesday night.


Jordan Pickford: Loose passing early on and at fault for the Denmark opener. Remained a little erratic throughout but redeemed himself with commanding claims from crosses. 5

Kyle Walker: Pace saved England at the back on numerous occasions though his attacking play was limited. Well disciplined throughout. 7

John Stones: Some loose passes but settled well and remained clever with the ball at his feet. 6

Harry Maguire: A calming presence at the back and a constant threat from set-pieces. Harshly booked. 7

Luke Shaw: Lively down the left and continued threatening partnership with Sterling. Attacking threat dwindled slightly but his delivery was spot-on once again. 7

Declan Rice: Provided some much needed physicality in midfield against stubborn opposition. 6

Kalvin Phillips: Broke the play up neatly but struggled to get on the ball enough. Kept things simply when required. 6

Bukayo Saka: Energetic and lively down the right wing. Great composure in the final third played crucial role in the equaliser. Unlucky to be subbed. 7

Mason Mount: His movement and link-up play was crucial to much of England's attacking work but eventually flagged through fatigue. 6

Raheem Sterling: Worked tirelessly off the ball to make space for his teammates. Responded superbly having missed a sitter before half-time. Played a key role in both goals. 8

Harry Kane: Intelligent with his hold-up play and won fouls in dangerous positions. Great passing to bring others into play despite limited service. Dreadful penalty, clinical rebound. 7

Jack Grealsh (for Saka '69): Did exactly what every fan expected with clever movement and won plenty of free-kicks. Adds something completely different to this side - even if his role was short lived. 7

Jordan Henderson (for Rice '95 AET): Added experience and energy at a crucial stage in the game. Exactly what England needed off the bench. 6

Phil Foden (for Mount '95 AET): Looked a constant threat whenever he got on the ball but lacking in his final third delivery. 6

Kieran Trippier (for Grealish '105 AET): Came on as part of the tactical reshape and performed well. Not his most notable performance, but one of his most memorable. 5

Subs not used: Aaron Ramsdale, Sam Johnstone, Conor Coady, Tyrone Mings, Reece James, Jude Bellingham, Marcus Rashford, Jadon Sancho.
