England player ratings vs United States: Harry Maguire good and Jack Grealish decent

Jordan Pickford: Had very little to do throughout the 90 minutes, even though the US pressed forward and carved out some decent opportunities. 5

Kieran Trippier: His set-piece delivery was not as enticing as usual. He gave Pulisic far too much time and space as the Chelsea winger crashed one effort off the crossbar. 5

John Stones: Did what he could to keep the US at bay on a night when others struggled. 6

Harry Maguire: Headed everything that came his way from set-pieces. He also saved England with two key blocks in the first half and was their best performer. 7

Luke Shaw: Not at the races. However, the United full-back was not alone there as Gareth Southgate’s men lacked the same verve they showed during that show-stopping Iran opener. 6

Declan Rice: Allowed the opposition to run at England far too often on the counter-attack. 5

Jude Bellingham: A lot is expected from the Borussia Dortmund star, despite his tender years. He had an off-night and can be forgiven that from time to time in his development. 5

Mason Mount: Ought to be the most vulnerable when it comes to selection for the Wales match. A penny for Phil Foden’s thoughts? 4

Bukayo Saka: Struggled to provide Trippier with any protection. A two-goal hero against Iran but, on this occasion, he was unable to replicate those heroics. 5

Raheem Sterling: Hardly had a kick in either half before he was hooked for ex-City teammate Grealish. 4

Harry Kane: Passed fit to lead the England line after his injury scare. For the most part he was starved of service and, whenever he did get it, he was unable to contribute. 4

Substitutes

Jordan Henderson: Summoned to help England gain more control. 6
