How did the players fare in England’s 1-0 victory over Serbia?

ENGLAND (4-2-3-1): 7 Pickford: Didn’t have a lot to do for most of the night, but made a crucial late save from Vlahovic’s long-range effort

8 Walker: Always looked in control defensively and produced a brilliant slide-rule pass to help set up Bellingham’s winner

7 Stones: Dealt with everything Serbia were able to throw at him – tougher tests no doubt await

8 Guehi: His first game at a major tournament couldn’t have gone much better – made some excellent interceptions and used the ball well

7 Trippier: The switch of position to left-back wasn’t a problem – survived a late injury scare when he went down

7 Rice: Always seemed to be in the right place for England at the base of midfield – shut down Serbia’s attacks

6 Alexander-Arnold: Still feels like a bit of a square peg in a round hole at the heart of midfield, but looked okay alongside Rice

8 Saka: Caused a succession of problems down the England right in the first half and provided the cross for Bellingham’s goal

8 BELLINGHAM: Ran the game in the first half and settled things with his first-half header – has the potential to be the star of the tournament

6 Foden: Never really looks comfortable playing off the left-hand side – another England game where he didn’t really hit the heights

7 Kane: Only touched the ball twice in the first half, but still would have finished with a goal had Rajkovic not pushed his header onto the bar
