England 1-2 France: player ratings from the World Cup quarter-finals | World Cup 2022


England

Jordan Pickford The deflection and rhythm of Tchouaméni’s shot made it difficult. Good saves from Giroud and Rabiot. But powerless to stop the winner of Giroud. 7/10

Kyle Walker Stayed disciplined and made sure not to leave England short at the back. But there were problems when Mbappé had space to run over him. 7/10

John Stones Part of his job was to position himself well and help Walker with Mbappé. Can’t cut Griezmann’s cross for France’s second place. 7/10

Harry Maguire Grazed the woodwork with a header at 1-1. Vigorously defended. But ultimately he will be remembered for losing Giroud to the winner. 6/10

Luke Shaw France targeted him and a cross from the right almost led to the goal. But Shaw stuck to his task and managed to silence Dembélé. 7/10

Declan Rice He had his work cut out trying to score Griezmann. I had to do a lot of interceptions and cover runs. Got stronger as the game progressed. 8/10

Jordan Henderson No one could blame the veteran’s efforts. Was a key part of England’s defensive display. But he often lacked composure in possession. 6/10

Jude Bellingham The 19-year-old looked raw at first. He followed well but lost too many duels. But his soaring runs in the second half were impressive. 8/10

Bukayo Saka The winger lost possession before France’s opener and lacked conviction in the first half. But nice answer. His dribbling terrified France after the break. 8/10

Harry Kane The captain responded when England conceded, which worried France. But after scoring a penalty, it was amazing to see him blaze the next one. 7/10

Phil Foden Another who woke up in the second half. His technical ability allowed him to get out of difficult situations when he was under pressure. 6/10

Substitute: Raheem Sterling Unable to influence the game after replacing Saka. 6; mason mount Made an impact by winning the penalty. seven; Jack Greish Came on for the Stones during injury time. 6; Marcus Rashford Curved free kick to the death. 6

France

Hugo Lloris The Tottenham keeper denied Kane two clean saves in the first half. Another fine save thwarted Bellingham. 8/10

Jules Kounde The Barcelona defender didn’t offer much in attack. He was more focused on trying to keep Foden and Shaw from combining on the flank. 7/10

Raphael Varane The centre-back managed to stay the course as England pressed for a second-half winner. His experience proved essential. 8/10

Dayot Upamecano Sparked the move that led to France’s first taking possession of Saka. I had a few shaky moments when Kane rolled it. 6/10

Theo Hernandez The defender has always wanted to support the attack. He was less certain when Saka began to squirm in space. Conceded a stupid penalty. 5/10

Aurelien Tchouameni The 22-year-old looked elegant in the first half and scored a brilliant goal. But his inexperience erupted when he fouled Saka for the first penalty. 8/10

Adrien Rabiot The Juventus midfielder says he has become more mature. This was evidence to support this claim. Rabiot was strong and energetic. 8/10

Ousmane Dembele Alluded to danger whenever he had room on the right. But it sometimes leaves you wanting more. Let the game drift it at times. 6/10

Antoine Griezmann Attacks knit together and England lopsided with smart movement. Continued to drift into space, two assists. Intelligent and selfless. 9/10

Kylian Mbappe So strong, fast and smart. Involved in Game 1, turning Rice over, and shot late in the first half. England never seemed stable. 7/10

Olivier Giroud The record holder of France was never going to worry running behind but always a danger in the surface. Threatened twice before making it 2-1. 8/10

Replacements: Kingsley Coman The winger kept a low profile after replacing Dembélé. 6
