A confident display from the Wales stopper. Moved quickly off his line to make some timely interceptions, especially in the first half.
Made some vital challenges in the opening thirty minutes and nullified the England threat down the right flank. Also made some excellent forays forward in the second half to support the attack.
There were a few eyebrows raised when he was selected ahead of James Collins but more than justified his place in the team. A strong defensive display.
An unusually quiet game from the Swans defender. Pulled out of position for Ashley Young’s goal.
Exposed by Downing on a few occasions in the first half, but otherwise another promising display from the Swansea left back.
Identified by England prior to kick off as the danger man, was once again at the heart of all of Wales’ most promising moves.

Brought into the side in place of the suspended David Vaughan and did a magnificent job in the heart of midfield.
The first game since being awarded the captaincy that the Arsenal midfielder has really shone. Kept the team ticking over.
Worked hard, but lack of pace was all too evident and didn’t do enough to prevent Stewart Downing’s cross for Ashley Young’s goal.
Great to see the West Ham United midfielder win his first competitive cap. Some decent touches and worked hard, but is more effective playing through the middle.
Showed excellent strength against John Terry and worked tirelessly in an isolated role.
Nobody can question his commitment to Wales, but ‘that’ miss will live with him forever and denied Wales a creditable point.
Replaced Collison after 85 minutes.
Back in March, Wales were embarrassed by England at the Millennium Stadium. Tonight, the manager showed just how far they have come in the short space of time he has been in charge. His change of style has instilled a belief in the players that they can compete against the top teams.
