JOE HART: Maintained concentration well to ensure he was not caught out by a couple of deflected efforts and little chance with the goals. 7.

GLEN JOHNSON: Some vital tackles and was England's best defender as others struggled. 7

JOHN TERRY: Mental toughness has to be admired. Like Johnson, good tackles. Organisational problems though and caught out a couple of times. 6.

JOLEON LESCOTT: Maybe his partnership with Terry is not quite as seamless as we thought. 6.

ASHLEY COLE: Superb through ball for Young might have brought England a second goal but struggled defensively. 6.

JAMES MILNER (off 61): Sticks to his strengths, which is no bad thing. But conceded free-kick for Sweden's second and offered nothing in attack. 5.

STEVEN GERRARD: Second assist, from virtually the same place as his first to set up Carroll's opener. Also created Walcott's. 7.

SCOTT PARKER: Early shot from Welbeck's lay-off. Busy night thereafter. 6.

ASHLEY YOUNG: Not his greatest night. Found it tough to impose himself on the game and gave the ball away in dangerous areas. 5.

ANDY CARROLL: Brute of a header to give England the lead. Gave away the free-kick that allowed Sweden to level but workrate was tireless. 7.

DANNY WELBECK (off 89): Brilliant winner to cap a decent performance. Given Hodgson a selection problem. 7

SUBSTITUES:

THEO WALCOTT (on 61): Took just three minutes to make his mark, deceiving Isaksson completely from 25 yards and then creating Welbeck's winner. 8.

ALEX OXLADE-CHAMBERLAIN (on 89): Not enough time to make an impact.
