Four Tottenham players featured for England as they beat Sweden 2-0 to reach the semi-finals of the World Cup. Here’s how we rated each of the Spurs contingent.
Kieran Trippier: 7
England’s breakout star of the tournament was reliably effective again, hugging the right touchline and looking for his chance to cross. No dead-ball heroics this time, but looks destined for the team of the tournament.
Dele Alli: 7
Drifted clear of his man at the far post and headed home well to give his side the required breathing space of a two-goal lead. Still looks short to be lacking full sharpness in attack but tracked back when needed.
Harry Kane: 7
England’s six-goal captain was finally kept off the scoresheet in Russia, only really threatening when he lashed a low effort a yard wide after a Sterling run. Contented himself with more prosaic matters of hold-up play and link work. Did a great job for the team.
Eric Dier: 6
A late outing from the bench, and a less dramatic one than his previous appearance. Kept things ticking over in midfield.
