England v Costa Rica: How the team rated in Belo Horizonte

England line up before the Costa Rica game

BEN FOSTER (GOALKEEPER) 7

Ben Foster

Impressive display. Safe handling and one outstanding save to turn Celso Borges' free-kick on to the bar.

PHIL JONES (RIGHT-BACK) 5

Phil Jones

Often clumsy and showed nothing by way of creation. Certainly not an international right-back.

GARY CAHILL (CENTRE-BACK) 6

Gary Cahill

Solid effort from Chelsea's defender. The one member of England's current first-choice defence who can feel fully confident about starting the Euro 2016 campaign.

CHRIS SMALLING (CENTRE-BACK) 6

Chris Smalling

Often careless in possession. Has failed to kick on and leaves Brazil with work to do to prove he can slot into England's central defence.

LUKE SHAW (LEFT-BACK) 7

Luke Shaw

Always wanted the ball and showed pace to snuff out occasional Costa Rican attacks.

FRANK LAMPARD (MIDFIELDER) 6

Frank Lampard

Steady performance on what looks certain to be his final England appearance.

JACK WILSHERE (MIDFIELDER) 6

Jack Wilshere

Worked hard and set up a chance for Daniel Sturridge with a neat flick.

JAMES MILNER (MIDFIELDER) 5

James Milner

Usual tireless effort but quiet and had little influence on affairs.

ROSS BARKLEY (MIDFIELDER) 6

Ross Barkley

Some nice touches but the odd concession of possession too. Great promise though.

ADAM LALLANA (MIDFIELDER) 6

Adam Lallana

He was also industrious with one or two nice touches. Did nothing to harm his reputation.

DANIEL STURRIDGE (FORWARD) 5

Daniel Sturridge

Had all England's best chances but not his day in a game that almost deserved to end goalless.

RAHEEM STERLING (MIDFIELDER) 6 - For Lallana on 61 mins
