England v Belgium player ratings – how the London contingent fared at Wembley

England came from behind to beat Belgium 2-1 at Wembley in the Nations League. Here’s how we rated each of the London contingent.


Eric Dier: 5

Not a good night for the Tottenham man. He was sold a dummy in the build-up to Belgium having a goal disallowed and his luck ran out when he gave away a penalty after bringing down Romelu Lukaku, having failed to engage the striker higher up the pitch.

Declan Rice: 6

Struggled in the first half but was better in the second. The West Ham star grew into the game, getting to grips with things in midfield, picking passes well and getting forward to good effect on occasions, including when he set up Marcus Rashford for a late chance.

Mason Mount: 7

The Chelsea youngster found the going tough in an unfamiliar right-sided role but stuck at it and his work-rate was rewarded when his shot was deflected in for England’s winner.

Harry Kane: 6

Brought on midway through the second half, Kane worked hard to occupy Belgium’s defenders. But the Tottenham striker missed a sitter when he headed wide late on.

Reece James: 6

The Chelsea youngster played the final 13 minutes and didn’t put a foot wrong.

Toby Alderweireld: 7

Tottenham’s Belgium defender was solid and composed at the back for the visitors and was unlucky when Mount’s shot deflected in off him.
