England 2-0 Malta player ratings: Rashford struggles as Southgate has Saudi issue | Football | Sport

Declan Rice 7

Gave England the boost they needed after coming on as a substitute before having a fine individual effort ruled out by VAR.

Conor Gallagher 6

Almost gave the visitors a first minute lead after getting caught on the ball and giving it away to Teddy Teuma who shot just wide. Substituted at half-time for Kyle Walker.

Kyle Walker 6

Helped to stir England into life during the second half in a slightly improved performance but will have expected more joy.

Phil Foden 7

One of the shining lights in a poor England display and created the only goal on 13 minutes driving into the box before his cross to Harry Kane was put into the Malta net by covering defender Enrico Pepe.

Harry Kane 7

Felt he deserved a first half penalty after the Bayern Munich striker looked to have been felled inside the box. Eventually got his goal with just his fifth touch of the game finishing a well worked England move.

Marcus Rashford 5

Largely ineffective in a sub-standard opening hour for England in which they should have created more chances against a poor Malta side.

Cole Palmer 6

Came on after 61 minutes and almost had a goal on his England debut showing quick feet as he raced into the box before seeing his effort blocked.
