English player ratings: Mixed night for Spurs stars, Everton man shines, Lallana does well

Tottenham Hotspur, Everton and Liverpool players were on show as the Three Lions secured a routine 3-0 win over Lithuania.

Jack Butland - 6/10

Not troubled at all by the Lithuanians.

Kieran Gibbs - 6/10

An average performance on what was an average bordering on mediocre night for England despite a 3-0 scoreline.

Phil Jagielka - 6.5/10

The Everton defender led calmly and didn't make any mistakes.

Phil Jones - 6.5/10

Like Jagielka, did okay but neither were really tested by Lithuania.

Kyle Walker - 6/10

On paper, a good game as the Tottenham right-back registered an assist for Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain's goal. Yet the Spurs man was criticised throughout for misplaced passes and poor movement.

Jonjo Shelvey - 6.5/10

Not terrible, not amazing - but this game tells us nothing about the Swansea man's England quality, just like the San Marino game didn't. Only proper opposition will. Against Switzerland, for instance, the midfielder was very poor.

Ross Barkley - 8/10

Again, the Everton man can only really be judged against better defences but, here, as with the Estonia game, the 21-year-old made sure he sent the message out that he was too good for this kind of game.

Adam Lallana - 7/10

A fine assist from the Liverpool man for the Harry Kane finish that ended up going down as an own goal. Let's hope he can do the same when it actually matters.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain - 6.5/10

Criticised throughout for an average performance but netted the third goal with a good finish inside the penalty box.

Jamie Vardy - 6.5/10

Caused a few problems as he has been doing all season for club and country.

Harry Kane - 7/10

The Tottenham striker played well and is unlucky his 'goal' will count as an own goal.


Tottenham's Dele Alli did well after coming on in the 67th minute, while Spurs team-mate Andros Townsend had slightly less time to impress. Liverpool forward Danny Ings also replaced Kane but at a point where the game was already won.
