Sweden v England: Player ratings

Video: Danny Welbeck scores England's opener

JOE HART: Not having the most assured of times. Penalty-box collision with Cahill was schoolboy stuff and was not his only basic mistake. 5

GLEN JOHNSON: Solidifying his status as first-choice right-back. Defending better and attacked with menace. 7

LEIGHTON BAINES: It is testament to the Everton man that no-one has really noticed Ashley Cole being missing so often. 7

STEVEN GERRARD: Fitting that he created England's second goal with one of 'those' free-kicks on the occasion of his 100th appearance. 8

GARY CAHILL: Not quite completed the transition from good Premier League player to international class defender. 6

STEVEN CAULKER: Will be pleased with his performance. Great block to deny Ibrahimovic will be as satisfying as debut goal. 8.

RAHEEM STERLING: Took his time to get going but impressed when he did. Brave enough to keep wanting the ball. 7

LEON OSMAN: Tough for Osman to make an impact on this pitch but, at 31, he will not get many chances and improved after the break. 7

DANNY WELBECK: Another goal for England's highest scorer of 2012. 8

TOM CLEVERLEY: Should have converted an early chance and provided energy from midfield. 6

ASHLEY YOUNG: Did little until finding Welbeck with a peach of a cross. 7


DANIEL STURRIDGE (for Young, 61): Not really the impact he would have been looking for. 6

JACK WILSHERE (for Cleverley, 61): Picked up another booking and got a few whacks for his pains. But is back, that is the main thing. 7

CARL JENKINSON (for Johnson, 73): A bystander as Ibrahimovic ran riot. 6

RYAN SHAWCROSS (for Caulker, 73): Received a very swift lesson from Ibrahimovic, who left him for dead to scorer Sweden's equaliser. 5

TOM HUDDLESTONE (for Gerrard, 73): Failed to repel the Swedish tide. 6

WILFRIED ZAHA (for Sterling, 85): Not enough time to make an impression. 5
