Player ratings from England’s win over Iceland as youngsters star in rout

England cruised to victory against Iceland to end their Nations League campaign on a positive note.

Midfield trio Declan Rice, Mason Mount and Phil Foden each got on the score sheet – Foden twice – as Gareth Southgate's men secured second spot in their group.

Rice's first international goal opened the scoring, Phil Foden's crossed free-kick deflecting off the West Ham man's shoulder and into the back of the net.

Mount doubled the Three Lions' advantage before the break, finishing into the bottom corner from inside the area.

Foden then hit a quickfire double in the second period, his second a sumptuous strike from the edge of the area to cap an impressive display from the Manchester City star.

Here's how the players rated at Wembley…

England

Pickford 7

Largely a spectator but looked very comfortable when he was called upon.

Walker 6

Booked. Brutal early challenge on Sigurjónsson. Largely untroubled. Solid.

Dier 6

Played in the middle of a back three, much better display than in Belgium.

Maguire 7

Very good. Joined up with attacks, looked agile and good passing.

Trippier 7

Love his pride and passion in playing for England. Improved defensively.

Rice 7

Looks way better with a more attack minded player alongside him. Good.

Mount 8

Hard to pick from Foden, Grealish but Mount just edged it. Excellent.

Saka 7

Has really seized his opportunity and looks a very good option at left wing back.

Foden 8

MotM. Two goals and assist showed his quality to make himself the star man.

Grealish 8

Third start in a row, he just loves the spotlight – and deserves it. Entertainer.

Kane 7

You can see he’s desperate for a goal after five without. Shot every time.
