PLAYER RATINGS: Jack Grealish stole the show at Wembley while Mason Mount must improve his final ball

  • Jack Grealish dictated the pace of England’s attacks during an excellent display
  • While Mason Mount added to England’s creativity, he must improve his final ball
  • However it was Harry Winks who kept England ticking over in their 3-0 win 

Jack Grealish stole the show at Wembley after being handed his third cap in Thursday’s friendly against the Republic of Ireland.

The Aston Villa captain dictated the pace of England’s attacks during an excellent display that saw Gareth Southgate’s men triumph 3-0. 

Mason Mount added to England’s creativity throughout the game, but must improve his final ball to excel on the international stage.  

However it was Harry Winks who kept England ticking over as he provided a superb midfield display that lead to two of their goals.

Had very little to do as England dominated proceedings. Subbed at half-time as Dean Henderson made his international debut. 

Michael Keane – 7

Cruised through this game. Looks far more confident than he did toward the end of last season. 

Harry Maguire – 7

A far cry from his previous England appearance when he was sent off before half-time. A captain’s goal to cap a convincing performance.

Tyrone Mings – 7

Composed performance from the Aston Villa man. Provided the defence with greater balance and even valuable in attack. 

Reece James – 8

Completely at ease in an England shirt. Has certainly worked his way into the Euros squad reckoning. 

Harry Winks – 8.5

The man who made England tick. A key hand in two goals during a superb midfield display.

Mason Mount – 7

Added creativity to an England midfield that’s looked workmanlike in recent matches but his final ball was a little off. 

Bukayo Sako – 8

Vibrant and energetic down England’s left. Growing at international level – another promising display. 

Jadon Sancho – 7

Scored a super goal to cap a much improved performance. Encouraging signs for the Borussia Dortmund man.

Dominic Calvert-Lewin – 7

Played the role of England’s focal point expertly and took his penalty brilliantly. 

Jack Grealish – 8.5

Dictated the pace of England’s attacks during an excellent display. Surely closing in on a first competitive start.
