15 Ben Chilwell – 5 – Beaten far too easily on the left for Germanys opening goal, but was not helped by the England midfield. Ran the left flank well and tried to aid his teammates in attack. Mason Holgate – 4 – Beaten far too easily for Germanys second goal. Holgate looked shaky at the back, and has struggled throughout the entire tournament. 15 Will Hughes – 8 – Excellent on the ball but something of a liability without it, many of Englands best attacks went through the new Watford signing. He showed off his vision with some superb creative passes, including the pull back that led to Abrahams goal.

Solid enough aside from that mistake, having formed an impressive partnership with Mawson. 15 Jordan Pickford – 6 – click the right arrow to see the remaining player ratings – Could do nothing about either of Germanys goals, and did well with everything else he faced. Once again showed off his superb distribution. 15 15 15 Lewis Baker – 6 – The game somewhat passed Baker by in the first-half, but he changed position in the second period and was much more influential in both defensive and offensive passages of play. He has not displayed his true talent at this tournament. 15 Demarai Gray – 7 – His fine finish levelled the game just before half-time. An energetic presence on the flanks, Gray did not shy away from defending when forced to. Substitute: John Swift – 4 – Looked completely off the pace when brought on. The game passed Swift by, and it is not a coincidence Germany started to dominate when he was introduced. Nathaniel Chalobah – 6 – Performed brilliantly considering he started the game following a late fitness test. He shielded the defence very well, and did all he could do before leaving the field after 65 minutes. 15 Substitute: Nathan Redmond – 4 – Looked ineffective in regulation time, and remained a peripheral figure in the added half hour. Not a good showing considering Redmond should have been one of Englands freshest players when introduced. Missed the all-important penalty kick. 15 James Ward-Prowse – 6 – A constant threat from set-pieces, with his superb dead ball delivery causing Germany major defensive problems. However, from open play he struggled with the game largely passing him by. Failed to ever get his foot on the ball and dictate play as he has shown he can do. 15 Substitute: Dominic Iorfa – 6 – Shored up the defence and looked to create chances with a series of driving runs down the right flank. 15 15 15 15 Tammy Abraham – 7 – Saw one powerful header well saved, and impressed when tasked with holding the ball up. His goal was a classic poachers finish. Struggled at times when isolated in the final third. Substitute: Jacob Murphy – 6 – Provided renewed energy and an attacking impetus when introduced, but failed to create anything of note in the final third. 15 Alfie Mawson – 7 – Looks a real talent. Mawson reads the game expertly and is not afraid to use his body to full effect. He could be an outside shot to make the next senior England squad.
