: balloon d’or contender shows Manchester united players how it’s done as england trash Hungary

PLAYER RATINGS: Mason Mount showed his quality to unlock the door

England put a frustrating first half behind them to sweep Hungary aside 4-0 in Thursday night’s World Cup qualifier.


Gareth Southgate’s men showed a solid backbone and attacking threat on a perfect night for the Three Lions.

Here, Sportsmail’s Sami Mokbel delivers his player ratings for the England stars.

Jordan Pickford – A virtual spectator as his team-mates controlled the game from start to finish. The Everton man won’t be complaining. 6

Kyle Walker – Was the best right-back at the Euros and excelled again. His defence-splitting pass should have been dispatched by Kane. 7

John Stones – One dicey moment in the first half, but the Manchester City man was relatively untroubled in the Hungarian capital. 7

Harry Maguire – Hardly broke a sweat as England dominated possession throughout. A calming influence at the back and got on the scoresheet. 7.5


Luke Shaw – A small positional error in the first half was a minor blot on an otherwise eye-catching performance. His delivery from wide was threatening. 7

Kalvin Phillips – Diligent in England’s engine room. Kept things ticking over and snuffed out any danger as the host’s threatened to counter. 7

Declan Rice – Patrolled the midfielder area with confidence. Did the job that was asked of him and scored his second England goal. Booked. 7

Mason Mount – His quality on the ball was there for all to see again. Unlocked the door for England’s first and had a hand in their second. 8
