Maddison Shows Promise for England and ‘Starboy’ Saka Performs Admirably
By Space Coast Daily // March 29, 2023
Players from England’s 2-0 win over Ukraine are evaluated, with praise going to Harry Kane, Bukayo Saka, and James Maddison.
According to W88, The English goalkeeper had it easy because he didn’t have to make any saves. Very tidy with the ball at his feet and he made a few spectacular long passes. There will be more games, and they will be harder.
8 for Kyle Walker
The Man City defender prevailed in a compelling matchup against Mykhailo Mudryk. Walker marshaled the fast Chelsea winger well after Mudryk was substituted, but the latter still posed a threat that required him to stay on his toes. This is a good game.
8 John Stones
Being on the lookout for Ruslan Malinovsky’s opening strike was crucial. While the English defense had a relatively quiet game, VN88 presence thinks that John Stones was always calm under pressure and in the right place at the right time.
Grade for Harry Maguire: 7
Once again, his defensive efforts were not heavily tested. Manchester United’s defenseman made a few careless passes, but he posed the usual danger in the Ukraine penalty area, missing two late header opportunities.
Chilwell, Ben, 7
Chilwell, who got his chance after Luke Shaw was sent off in Naples, put in a spirited performance even though most of England’s best work came down the right. Vn88 presence described that the Chelsea left-back was rock solid in defense and made a few of his trademark bursts down the left flank while also providing some dangerous set-piece deliveries. A welcome addition to the arsenal for Gareth Southgate.
7 for Declan Rice.
The West Ham midfielder is incredibly adept at timing his movements to eliminate threats. Whenever Ukraine threatened in the second half, Rice was there to make a crucial tackle on the edge of his own box. The Three Lions on his chest symbolized yet another strong performance.
7 – Jordan Henderson
The man from Liverpool makes W88 surprises that put on a rousing performance. When he dons an England jersey, expectations are set. He assisted on Saka’s incredible goal and produced some inviting crosses for his teammates to attack. A very reliable person to have running Southgate.
- C. Bellingham, Grade 7
After his spectacular performance in Naples, the 19-year-old English player had a more subdued outing here. Early in the second half, he showed what he’s made of with a powerful yet graceful run through the middle, where he outpaced three opponents. After being set up by Saka, he flubs a golden opportunity to score by missing the target with his shot.
Since he ran over nearly every blade of grass at Wembley Stadium, you can’t fault his effort, but you should criticize his performance.
Score: 8 for James Maddison
Became more invested as time went on. Gareth Southgate started him on the left wing but gave him a lot of freedom. Always came in from the sidelines to steal the ball from his teammates. He had two good opportunities to score in the first half of his England debut, and his five chances created today were the most by a player making his England debut since Theo Walcott in 2008. Promising.
9 of Bukayo Saka
After a relatively quiet first quarter of an hour, he quickly became a constant danger down England’s right. England’s preeminence increased alongside his clout. At Wembley, his speed, trickery, and intensity gave Vitaliy Mykolenko a run for his money. Harry Kane’s first goal was set up by your pinpoint cross, and his subsequent stunning strike sent Wembley Stadium into raptures. He continues his incredible season by being named player of the game.
Rank: Harry Kane, 8
Rezence‘s record breaker; need we say more? After missing a tough opportunity early on, Kane scored goal number 55 with a trademark finish. Dedicated himself wholeheartedly once more to the team’s success until he was replaced by Ivan Toney with 10 minutes to go. Even the pregame ceremonies were something to remember for Kane on this special day.
Toney, Ivan, 7
A first-ever performance in England! This must be a big deal for him and Brentford. We’ve come to expect Toney’s first touch in the Premier League to be a brilliant flick-on, and he didn’t disappoint. He hopes this is only the beginning.
In the 86th minute, Jack Grealish – n/a – came on for Maddison. A cameo appearance at the very end. made some nice passes to Chilwell and eventually prompted a great save from Anatoliy Trubin.
N.A. for Conor Gallagher
To replace Bellingham and have an impact in just the four minutes plus stoppage time. Yet another late goal opportunity was missed when a shot from the Chelsea midfielder was blocked by Trubin.
