England’s Euro 2020 end-of-tournament report: Every Three Lions player rated

Southgate hopes to lead England at World Cup in 2022

The infamous countdown clock installed after Greg Dyke’s galvanising speech at the start of the decade always pointed towards Qatar 2022 for England success.

Having fallen just short this time, Express Sport assesses which of the players are looking ready for the next World Cup – and which are not.

1 JORDAN PICKFORD – 8

7 games, 690 mins, 37.4 km

One of England’s stars. Has ‘moments’ with Everton but emerging as top international goalkeeper.

2 KYLE WALKER – 7

6 games, 599 mins, 59.9 km

His pace remains a vital attribute. A wobbly first game against Croatia but grew from there.

3 LUKE SHAW – 9

6 games, 575 mins, 62.6 km

Exorcised some Mourinho angst and final goal completing his transition to Shawberto Carlos.

4 DECLAN RICE – 7

7 games, 538 mins, 62.5 km

Really looked the part in the final when his focus was much more forward-looking

5 JOHN STONES – 7

7 games, 679 mins, 67.3 km

His rehabilitation from the Nations League was remarkable alongside Maguire.

6 HARRY MAGUIRE – 8

5 games, 510 mins, 51.5 km

Shrugged off his injury in time to play a vital part at both ends of the pitch.

7 JACK GREALISH – 7

5 games, 172 mins, 22.0 km

Always seemed to lift the mood when he came on but never found that special something.

8 JORDAN HENDERSON – 5

5 games, 151 mins, 20.5 km

Disappointing final cameo. Scored goal, but card tricks aside he was not-so-magic Jordan.

9 HARRY KANE – 7

7 games, 649 mins, 74.3 km

Four goals but his own high standards demanded more. Needs a system that works.

10 RAHEEM STERLING  – 8

7 games, 641 mins, 68.3 km

Made a few wrong decisions in the final but who can forget that semi-final display?

11 MARCUS RASHFORD – 5

5 games, 84 mins, 10.7 km

Really needs to get his shoulder/back injury sorted so he can arrive fresh into next season.

12 KIERAN TRIPPIER – 7

5 games, 290 mins, 33.5 km

A reliable performer who sets a strong standard for a fit Trent Alexander-Arnold to match.

14 KALVIN PHILLIPS – 8

7 games, 655 mins, 83.0 km

Possibly the discovery of the tournament. Not fazed by anything. Undroppable.

15 TYRONE MINGS – 6

3 games, 191 mins, 19.4 km

Dependable in the group stages while Maguire was getting to full fitness. Good squad member.

17 JADON SANCHO – 5

3 games, 97 mins, 12.1 km

Barely given a chance then fluffed his penalty. Attitude was questioned – a big season ahead.

18 DOMINIC CALVERT-LEWIN – 5

2 games, 18 mins, 2.8 km

Always eager but often thwarted. Perhaps Southgate could have used his Plan B strengths more.

19 MASON MOUNT – 6

5 games, 464 mins, 50.4 km

The COVID isolation seemed to rob him of his energy as he struggled to emulate Chelsea form.

20 PHIL FODEN – 6

3 games, 159 mins, 19.8 km

Different tournament if shot against Croatia hadn’t hit the post. World beater in the making still.

24 REECE JAMES – 5

1 game, 90 mins, 9.0 km

A 99 per cent pass completion rate showed one thing – he was too timid to take the risks needed.

25 BUKAYO SAKA – 8

4 games, 272 mins, 31.4 km

As popular as he is dangerous. Will recover from penalty miss – he’s only 19 for goodness sake.

26 JUDE BELLINGHAM – 7

3 games, 56 mins, 7.9 km

Just a few tantalising glimpses of his capabilities showed just what a prospect he is for the future.

NOT USED: 13 D HENDERSON, 13 RAMSDALE, 16 COADY, 21 CHILWELL, 22 WHITE, 23 JOHNSTONE

White, Coady and keepers along for the ride. Massive miss for Champions League-winning Chilwell.
