England made it two wins from two in their Euro 2024 qualification campaign as they brushed aside Ukraine 2-0 at Wembley.
Goals from Harry Kane and Bukayo Saka, just minutes apart, sent England in at the break 2-0 up and they saw out the second half with consummate ease.
Gareth Southgate will likely be pleased by the way his side maintained control for the entire 90 minutes, something they did not manage in Naples against Italy on Tuesday.
With their next qualifiers in June, Southgate and his players have some time away from the national set up and they will return in the summer full of vigour and desperate to secure their place in Germany next summer as soon as possible.
Sportsmail’s Dominic King provides the ratings and verdicts from England’s victory over Ukraine.
Goals from Harry Kane and Bukayo Saka ensured England made it two wins from two
Jordan Pickford – Clapped his hands to encourage, jumped up and down to keep warm but saw very little action – 6
Kyle Walker – Misjudged one tackle in the second half but was able to play most of the game with two or three gears in reserve – 6
John Stones – Master and commander of this back four cruised through proceedings and was never remotely threatened to be taken out of his comfort zone – 7
Harry Maguire – Will have enjoyed the chance to get 90 minutes again as who knows when the next chance will come this season? – 6.5
Harry Maguire will be happy to get 90 minutes under his belt – who knows when his next opportunity will come?
Jordan Henderson looked back to his best in midfield – pressing and harrying Ukraine’s midfield throughout
Ben Chilwell – Had a small role in England’s opener and was always looking to bomb forward with plenty of zest – 7
Jordan Henderson – Set the tone for the display with relentless pressing and intelligent passing, the pick of the midfield – 8
Declan Rice – Impeccably timed intervention early in the second half, to stop a Ukraine attack, the pick of his tireless work – 7
Jude Bellingham – Heavy strapping on his knee wasn’t inhibiting and kept trying to drive into areas where he could do damage – 7
Bukayo Saka – There’s something wrong if you don’t have a big smile watching this young man, what a beautiful goal he scored – 8.5
There is something wrong if you do not enjoy watching Saka play football in this manner
Harry Kane scored his 55th goal for England in another assured performance by Gareth Southgate’s side
Harry Kane – Felt inevitable he was going to mark the day with a goal and so it proved, his hunger to keep adding to his tally is insatiable – 7.5
James Maddison – Slow start but gradually came alive, his best moment being a beautiful 50th minute turn that created a shooting chance – 6.5
Toney (for Kane 81mins); Grealish (for Maddison 86mins); Gallagher (for Bellingham 86mins)
Ramsdale (GK), Forster (GK), Trippier, Guehi, Dier, Grealish, Phillips
Gareth Southgate – Will be extremely content with a professional job well done against obdurate opponents and another three points on the way to qualification – 7
Trubin 7: Karavaev 5 (Sobol 61mins 6), Svatok 6, Matviyenko 6 (Buyalskiy 61mins 5), Mykolenko 6.5: Sudakov 6, Stepanenko 6 (Konoplianka 89mins), Zinchenko 6: Malinovskyi 6, Yaremchuk 5 (Dovbyk 74mins 5), Mudryk 5 (Tsygankov 61mins 5)
Chelsea’s Mykhailo Mudryk struggled to impose himself on the game and appears to have some way to go in his development
