Didn't have too much to deal with in terms of shot-stopping but certainly had to be on his toes at times as there was a few scrambles inside the box that he pounced upon to take the pressure off.
Dug in despite being up against a real talent in Konoplyanka. Put in some superbly timed challenges and constantly snuffed out Ukraine counterattacks with his positioning and reading of the game.
Elegnantly marshaled the defence throughout the match as was always looking to burst out of defence and create play from the back. Read the game magnificently and snuffed out the threat from Zozulya with minimal fuss.
Opened the scoring for France with a firm finish from a tight angle in the 22nd minute and was generally a menace from set-pieces. Was prone to an over-elaborate clearance or two but proved to be the hero as he scored a second to make it 3-0.
Was involved in a running duel with Yarmolenko all evening and gave as good as he got in terms of running and strength.
Was a danger to Ukraine from the start and showed his prowess in the air as he almost scored with a couple of powerful headers early on, before driving a strike inches over from the edge of the box.
Got stuck in from the first whistle and his attitude and determination set the tone for the France performance, especially in the first half.
Was the French dangerman as soon as the first whistle blew and got off to a lightning start as he burst down the left to force Rotan into conceding a booking.
Was box-to-box all evening and showed a terrific engine in the middle of the park. Got back into defensive positions well after going forward but showed plenty of ambitions and made some terrific late bursting runs into the box.
Looked up for the match from the start and was always a thorn in the side of Ukraine from his position down that right-hand side. Delivery from set-pieces was sensational all evening.
Was unlucky to see a goal ruled as offside but was a few yards off when he smashed a strike home to make it 2-0 in the first half. Hold up play was solid as he continually introduced others into the match.
Pulled off a number of outstanding saves throughout the match and was unlucky to concede moments after denying Ribery with a super stop with his right hand.
Had his hands full with Ribery's pace, directness, and trickery coming in from the left-hand side and struggled at times. However, was full of desire to get back into position whenever in forward positions.
Was dominant aerially in the first half but earned a booking after a daft scuffle with Sakho. Left Ukraine with a mountain to climb to get back into the match after getting himself sent off after the break with a scything challenge on Ribery.
Was guilty of standing off Valbuena at times which allowed the Marseille man to pick out crosses into the box at will. However, learned his lesson in the second period and got in his face.
Was under the cosh from the start of the match as France continually piled crosses into the box, but he was superb in the air and headed them out time after time.
Displayed flashes of his trickery and speed down the left and gave Debuchy something to think about, but didn't do it often enough and often came out second best. Delivery into the box could have been better as his free kicks were flat.
Showed some flashes of class as he drilled an unlucky strike just wide of the post from 25 yards out but drifted in and out of the match offensively.
Attempted to slot in just behind Zozulya in the hole but barely saw the ball in that position, which left the strike horribly isolated up top.
Didn't look comfortable almost immediately as he earned a booking just seven minutes in when he took out Ribery. Attempted to screen his defence but was pulled out of position too many times.
Was the most anonymous player on the park as he barely saw the ball in his lone striker role up top. Attempted to drift from his position to find the ball but was always followed by Varane and was the game's most ineffective player.
Grew into the match in the first period and began to look dangerous down that right-hand side. Gave Evra a tough match at times with his pace and his drifting runs into the box but should have scored just before the break with a shot at the back post. Became more anonymous as the match went on.
