England ratings: How the London contingent fared in Prague

England suffered a shock defeat as the Czech Republic came from behind to beat them 2-1 in Prague. Here’s how we rated each of the London contingent.

Danny Rose: 5

Picked up a first-half yellow card and will therefore be suspended for the game against Bulgaria. The Tottenham left-back offered very little going forward and was unconvincing defensively.

Declan Rice: 5

Not a good night for the West Ham man, who had a poor game in midfield and failed to cut out the corner which led to the first Czech goal.

Mason Mount: 6

Some nice touches on his full debut but the Czechs’ hardworking midfield kept him quiet before he was replaced with 18 minutes remaining by his Chelsea team-mate Ross Barkley.

Harry Kane: 7

The Tottenham striker put England ahead with an early penalty – his seventh goal in his last five internationals – and later carved open the Czech defence with superb passes to Raheem Sterling and Jadon Sancho but neither could apply the finish. Neither could Kane when set up by Sterling and then a wonderful ball from Barkley. Those misses proved costly.

Ross Barkley: 7

England improved after his introduction and he set up Kane with a sublime pass late on. Chelsea’s Tammy Abraham was later brought on too but had no time to make an impact.
