England player ratings vs Ukraine: Jordan Henderson struggles as Kyle Walker finally scores

England faced Ukraine in a Euro 2024 qualifier played in Wroclaw, Poland and it proved to be a tricky test for Gareth Southgate's side.

Ukraine went 1-0 through up Oleksandr Zinchenko, sparking out wild, passionate scenes at the Municipal Stadium.

It was the first goal England had conceded for five hours but Kyle Walker levelled matters with his first ever Three Lions goal at the end of the first half.

England gained a valuable point in Group C and retain a six point lead at the top. Here's our take on how the stars fared:

Jordan Pickford - 7

Didn't have many shots to contend with in the clash but continues to be reliable for his country.

Kyle Walker - 8


Finally opened his account for England in his 77th game and what a way to do it. Superb run and exquisite touch from the Manchester City skipper. Defended excellently against Mykhailo Mudryk.

Harry Maguire - 5

Often performs much better in an England shirt and was largely solid apart from the goal, where he didn't cover himself in glory. Booked for a collision Heorhiy Buschan.

Marc Guehi - 6


Decent showing in just his sixth cap and showed his ability on the ball

Ben Chilwell - 5

Not a great performance from the Chelsea vice-captain, who was panned online for his display.

Declan Rice - 6


One of the first names on the teamsheet for England and performed well sitting in midfield. Might think he ought to have done better for Ukraine's goal.

Jude Bellingham - 6

The Real Madrid superstar's confidence will have been sky high going into this one but he'll admit this wasn't his best game in an England shirt.

Jordan Henderson - 5


Questions were raised about his selection following his move to Saudi Arabia and you get the feeling that he shouldn't be starting for England anymore.

Bukayo Saka - 6

Hit the bar with a trademark thumping strike after cutting in from the right. Should have had a penalty for another effort which was blocked by the hand of a Ukrainian defender.

James Maddison - 5

Has been in excellent form for Spurs at the start of the season but was a little ineffective here. Booked in the first half.

Harry Kane - 7

Unable to add to his record-breaking England goals tally but did produce a quite breathtaking assist for Walker's equaliser. His playmaking abilities are on par with his finishing.

Marcus Rashford - 6

Tried to make things happen down the left flank.

Phil Foden - 6

Sent on for Bellingham but unable to make too much of an impact.

Conor Gallagher - 6

Came on for Saka late on when it looked like England were happy with a point.
