More of the games that matter

Upgrade in minutes or watch with a NOW TV Day Pass.

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.

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
