England were far too strong for Moldova in Chisinau - but how did each of the Three Lions rate?

JOE HART: A few minor scares but nothing England's number one could not handle. 7.

GLEN JOHNSON: Booked for kicking the ball away but created Lampard's second to justify selection ahead of Kyle Walker. 7.

LEIGHTON BAINES: Steady display on the left flank, which is exactly what you would expect of Ashley Cole's stand-in. Has a claim on a goal too. 7.

STEVEN GERRARD (off 46): Looked like he had a point to prove as he set the tone for England's powerful display. 7.

JOLEON LESCOTT: Edged out Gary Cahill and built on Euro 2012 displays. Will have tougher tests though. 7.

JOHN TERRY: Another solid display from the Chelsea man whose presence rubs off on others. 7.

JAMES MILNER: Excellent display on the right flank. Many question why he keeps getting picked. This is the reason. 7.

FRANK LAMPARD: Deadly from the spot to give England their flying start, then added another. Questions about age dispelled. 8.

JERMAIN DEFOE (off 68): Marked landmark 50th cap with 17th international goal. Part of an incisive performance. 7.

TOM CLEVERLEY: Preferred to club colleague Michael Carrick and played pivotal role in England opener. 7.

ALEX OXLADE-CHAMBERLAIN (off 58): Claimed assist for Defoe's effort and showed admirable maturity. 7.


MICHAEL CARRICK (on 46): Kept the game ticking over but difficult to have much of an impact when the match was won. 6.

THEO WALCOTT (on 58): Darted around but did not really unsettle Moldova as much as he would have wished. 6.

DANNY WELBECK (on 68): Unlucky to miss out but still on rapid learning curve. 6.
