SunSport’s Duncan Wright has delivered his England player ratings…

SAM JOHNSTONE – 7 Wayward early kick, but couple of smart low saves on debut. Then saved well with his feet – before stunning stop to deny equaliser.

BEN GODFREY – 6 Capable display at the back, pushed forward to link up in attack. Steady full debut overall.

BEN WHITE – 7 Calm in possession, looked more assured than defensive partner Mings. Impressive full debut.


Lapse in concentration in first 30 seconds highlighted fears about ability at highest level. Didn’t improve much afterwards.

LUKE SHAW – 6 Switched off twice to allow Romania in, pushed forward at every possibility. Steady without impressing.

KALVIN PHILLIPS – 6 Pressured well out of possession, quiet on the ball. Went about job without fuss and will be reliable if needed.

JAMES WARD-PROWSE – 8 Busy on and off the ball, excellent in possession and made late claim to manager for selection. Set piece delivery an added bonus.

JADON SANCHO – 7 Looked dangerous from the off, unlucky with shot against bar. Came short too often as England struggled to create.

JACK GREALISH – 8 Ignored the rough challenges to grow in influence, won the penalty and looked biggest threat for England.

MARCUS RASHFORD – 6 Not helped by making runs but not being spotted. Shot wide after one trademark burst, but held nerve to score from spot.

DOMINIC CALVERT-LEWIN – 6 Unlucky with fine header against bar, but should have scored from close range in second half. Quiet display.
