Scotland 1-3 England: player ratings from the Hampden Park friendly

Scotland (3-4-2-1)

Angus Gunn Could not be faulted for England’s goals. Fine saves from Bellingham and Eze in the second half. 6/10

Ryan Porteous Made an important early block but he struggled when England found space on the left. 5

Jack Hendry Unconvincing in the middle. Moved around too easily and was guilty of some weak defending. 4

Kieran Tierney Off the pace. He lost track of his runners and made no impact in possession. 4

Aaron Hickey The focus was on containing England’s threats down the left. He offered nothing in attack. 5

Callum McGregor Outplayed. There was plenty of effort but he found it hard going against England’s midfield. 5

Billy Gilmour The Brighton youngster tried hard but was unable to dictate the flow in central midfield. Shot over in the second half. 5

Andy Robertson Scotland’s captain showed character to recover from his mistake for England’s second. Forced Maguire’s own-goal. 4

John McGinn One of Scotland’s key players was quiet at first but his influence grew in the second half. 6

Scott McTominay Some energetic runs caught the eye but the midfielder could not get into goalscoring positions. 5

Che Adams A willing runner but the striker never looked like scoring. Guéhi snuffed out a rare chance. 5

Substitutes Lyndon Dykes, 6; Ryan Christie, 6; Stuart Armstrong, 6; Lewis Ferguson, 6; Ryan Jack, 6; Nathan Patterson, 6.

Lewis Dunk The centre-back impressed on his first cap since 2018. Strong in the air and sharp distribution. 7

Marc Guéhi The youngster was encouraging before coming off at half-time. Must be pushing to displace Maguire. 7

Kieran Trippier The 33-year-old was a steadying presence on his weaker side but he could not stop Robertson’s cross for Scotland’s goal. 6

Declan Rice Tenacious. The midfielder read danger, won his tackles and kept England moving with brisk passing. 7

Kalvin Phillips Excellent despite his lack of match fitness, showing for the ball and offering plenty of dynamism. 8

Phil Foden Not in the centre but drifted inside to link the play. Deft finish made it 1-0. 8

Jude Bellingham Carved Scotland apart for the opener and clinically doubled the lead. Stunning assist for England’s third. 9

Marcus Rashford Looked to use his pace and was involved in Foden’s goal. But he was wasteful at times. 7

Harry Kane Toyed with Scotland’s defenders by dropping deep and varying his movement. Took his goal confidently. 8

Substitutes Harry Maguire, 5; Eberechi Eze, 6; Bukayo Saka, 6; Conor Gallagher, 6; Callum Wilson, 6.
