first_imgShare on Twitter Pinterest England Share on Messenger ENGLANDJordan Pickford Saved from Kramaric after half an hour, parried Croatia’s only other effort from Perisic. Solid. 7Kyle Walker Grew as an attacking force in the second half and never stopped running but could not provide a final ball. 6 John Stones Booked for a foul on Rebic, with whom he had something of a duel. Otherwise calm on the ball. 6 Harry Maguire A liability in possession, gave the ball away several times. On the back foot he read the game well. 5 features Marcus Rashford fluffs his lines in England’s eerie draw with Croatia Luka Modric and Harry Kane had quiet games.

A threat on the ball. 8Eric Dier Might have scored with a header on the verge of half-time. Otherwise low-key but stuck to his task. 6 Jordan Henderson Got booked very early but then kept his cool and offered the best range of passing. 7 Ross Barkley Grew into the game in the second half but, really, did not deliver much. Had a penalty shout turned down. 6Raheem Sterling Not a great performance. Booked for kicking the ball away and subbed off after quiet night on the right. 5 Marcus Rashford Another case of great chances, not converted. His first miss was horrible. But showed ability to make a difference. 7Harry Kane Another quiet match by his standards but still hit the bar and had a goal ruled out for offside. 6Substitutes Sancho (for Sterling 78) 7CROATIADominik Livakovic Made a decent save from Rashford’s second effort and dealt well with other shots. Passing was poor. 6 Tin Jedvaj Booked for nasty challenge on Dier and was troubled by both Chilwell and Rashford. 5 Dejan Lovren Another booking, this time for thumping into Sterling. Just about held his own otherwise. 6Domagoj Vida Hashed a clearance then chased it all the way down the pitch. Poor on the ball. 5Josip Pivaric Dealt well with Sterling, then in a world of pain for Sancho’s brief cameo. 6Mateo Kovacic Another one to see yellow but did an effective job at the base of midfield. 6 Ivan Rakitic Quiet by his standards. With Kovacic mopping up behind him could have been more adventurous. 5 Facebook Share on Facebook Luka Modric Only the odd glimpse of genius but was never ruffled by this match. At the heart of things. 7 Ivan Perisic Croatia’s best player both going forward and, often, tracking back. Drew a save from Pickford. 8Ante Rebic A different position – as a central striker – seemed to suit him. Strong and nimble in the box. 7 Andrej Kramaric: Missed the first chance of the match and slashed at another. Disappointing. 5 SubstitutesMarko Pjaca (for Perisic, 68): 6Milan Badelj (for Kovacic, 73) 6Marko Livaja (for Rebic, 80) 6 Share on WhatsApp Share on LinkedIn Share via Email Reuse this content Twitter Share on Pinterestlast_img
