Jack Wilshere: Disappointing display in the heart of midfield

Jack Wilshere: Disappointing display in the heart of midfield

JOE HART: Heart-in-mouth time when he slid out to challenge Roman Zozulya in first minute but stood strong late on. 6.

KYLE WALKER: Had hardest job trying to subdue Konoplianka. Got caught upfield once but otherwise maintained discipline. Booked. 6.

ASHLEY COLE: Excellent performance. Solid defensive display forced Ukraine to channel all their attacks down their left. 7.

GARY CAHILL: Superb central defensive display. Didn't buckle in face of early Ukraine wave and kept his cool for the second effort. 8.

PHIL JAGIELKA: Fine foil for Cahill. Set about his task well, always knew where Cahill was and mopped up when needed. 8.

THEO WALCOTT (off 87): Bright at times, frustrating at others. Most likely to open Ukraine up but could not. 6.

STEVEN GERRARD: Curled one effort over but main role was screening defence. Decent effort. 7.

FRANK LAMPARD: Could have done with keeping hold of possession a little better but not really a game to shine on 100th appearance. 7.

JACK WILSHERE (off 67): Disappointing first half when too many passes went astray and didn't improve much after the break. 5.

JAMES MILNER: Was not picked for flamboyance but Hodgson knew he could rely on the Manchester City man to do the hard yards, and he did. 5

RICKIE LAMBERT: Began with purpose but Ukraine defence quickly got his measure. 6.

Substitutes

ASHLEY YOUNG (on 67): Did okay without really altering the pattern of the game. 6.

TOM CLEVERLEY (on 87): Not enough time to make an impact.

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.
