Joe Hart 6/10 - Rarely troubled, but still managed a couple of uncertain moments, including one real mix up with Chris Smalling.

Nathaniel Clyne 7/10 - Arguably the best of the players Hodgson rotated in to the side. Had a lot of energy and willingness to get forward, produced some good crosses and also had one of England's best chances, forcing goalkeeper Matus Kozacik into an excellent save.

Gary Cahill 6/10 - Hardly called upon defensively, and pushed up more and more as the game progressed, with little success.

Chris Smalling 6/10 - Like the rest of the England defence, there wasn't much for him to worry about, but he and Hart almost gifted Slovakia a goal.

Ryan Bertrand 5.5/10 - Seemed overzealous with some of his challenges as he failed to assert his authority down the left flank to the same degree as his former Southampton teammate on the other flank.

Eric Dier 7.5/10 - The Spurs man is looking a natural at international level, and was again heavily involved as England continuously probed the opposition. Helped shut down the little attacking threat Slovakia offered and also had more touches and passes than any other player.

Jordan Henderson 6/10 - Looked eager to get involved and was busy when he got on the ball, but the Liverpool captain was unable to make it count and disappointed with several of his deliveries.

Jack Wilshere 5/10 - Will have been disappointed with his impact on the game, the sort of match it would have been expected he could make the difference in. Missing for much of his time on the field, and hardly any attacks instigated by the Arsenal star, who to be honest, looked to be lacking match fitness.

Adam Lallana 6.5/10 - Has been one of England's better attacking players this tournament, but was a little more muted than he has been in the other two games. Could have done better with his scoring chances.

Daniel Sturridge 6/10 - Displayed good footwork to beat his man a couple of times, but then failed to make it count. Came too deep as the game wore on and was unable to be an attacking threat in the box.

Jamie Vardy 6/10 - Had England's best chance when put through on goal, which he would have expected to finish. Few openings elsewhere in the game, and was barely involved in the last 20 minutes with Slovakia deep and teammates unable to play to his strengths. Displayed great work rate as usual.


Wayne Rooney 6.5/10 -An upgrade on Wilshere, as the England captain demanded the ball and lifted the supporters, but though he seemed up for it, there wasn't the space for him to make the difference.

Dele Alli 5.5/10 - Briefly looked to brighten proceedings, nearly scoring with his first touch. But after that, there was only a couple of nice touches to go with the occasional desperate cross or shot.

Harry Kane 5.5/10 - A late substitute who had a couple of half chances.
