TEAMtalk's England ratings from Podgorica

TEAMtalk rates England's players after Tuesday night's 1-1 World Cup qualifying draw with Montenegro in Podgorica.

Last Updated: 26/03/13 at 22:28 Post Comment

JOE HART: Not that much to do before break. Busy afterwards and some outstanding saves. 8.

GLEN JOHNSON: Went close as the visitors tore at their opponents from first whistle. Booked later and struggled. 7.

ASHLEY COLE: Steady display down the left. Happy to adopt a cautious approach, although not given much protection when going got tough. 7.

STEVEN GERRARD: Feeds off the vibrancy so evident in many of his younger team-mates but still gives the ball away too frequently. Almost won it at the death. 6.

JOLEON LESCOTT: Solid defensive performance. On this evidence not easy to understand how he struggles for a game at Manchester City. 7.

CHRIS SMALLING: Another central defender who doesn't fulfil the role much for his club. Effective here for a while although under pressure for a bit. 7.

JAMES MILNER: Gave England energy down the right and did his share of defending with soem timely defensive interventions. 7.

MICHAEL CARRICK: Kept the visitors ticking overin the first half but then lost control of the game as Montenegro surged forward. 6.

DANNY WELBECK: Another excellent effort from the striker whose movement caused massive problems. Harshly booked when he should have been awarded a penalty. 8.

WAYNE ROONEY: Epitomised England's fast start, hitting the post with an excellent chip before netting his 35th international goal. Faded after the break.7.

TOM CLEVERLEY (off 78): Extended ever-present record this season but not one of his best displays. 6.

ASHLEY YOUNG (on 78): Attacking invention helped stop the slide backwards and gave England impetus. 7.

wo things. First, I can't stop reading your name as 'Dane Bowers'. Second, you used the words 'philosophy' and 'Redknapp' in the same sentence.
