Wales v England Player Ratings

 Wayne Hennessey   6

Went the wrong way for Frank Lampard’s penalty and couldn’t do much about England’s second goal.

Chris Gunter   7

Arguably one of Wales’ best performers on the day. Tried to get forward and support the attack in the second half and strong defensively. Coped well with the threat of Wayne Rooney.

Danny Collins   4

Had a torrid afternoon, constantly exposed by Johnson and Young, looked edgy and uncomfortable on the ball.

Andrew Crofts   6

Worked hard and added some grit to the midfield, but struggled to make an impact.

James Collins   5

Terrible decision making when conceding penalty which ultimately shattered Wales’ morale. Pulled it together afterwards and made some important challenges.

Ashley Williams   6

A few shaky moments, but overall solid defensive performance.

Joe Ledley   6

Unable to exert his usual influence on the game. Worked hard to retain possession of the ball in the second half but not enough attacking threat.

Craig Bellamy   6

Full of passion, but unable to use his experience to influence the game.

Steve Morison   6

Isolated up front in the first half and struggled to get into the game. Improved link up play in the second half and had a couple of decent chances, but poor control let him down.

Aaron Ramsey   6

Desperate to impress on his first appearance as Wales captain, but unable to create a breakthrough.

Andy King   5

Asked to play in a somewhat unfamiliar role on the left in the absence of Gareth Bale and inexperience showed. Improved link up play with Bellamy in the second half.

Substitutes

David Vaughan   6

Broke up England’s play with some strong challenges and good distribution of the ball.

Ched Evans   6

Held up the ball well but not enough time to make a significant impact.
