Reality check for Roy Hodgson's men as Alexis Sanchez strikes twice at Wembley

By Greg Stobart at Wembley

  • Fraser Forster
    51
    29
    2.00

    Fraser Forster

    Made a couple of sharp saves but on the whole a nervy debut as he looked glued to his line and produced wayward kicks.

  • Gary Cahill
    29
    73
    1.00

    Gary Cahill Flop of the Match

    Shaky throughout and made a real mess in injury time as he gifted Chile possession ahead of Sanchez's second goal.

  • Glen Johnson
    18
    50
    2.00

    Glen Johnson

    The Liverpool defender's positioning was often poor, allowing Beausejour to run into space.

  • Leighton Baines
    25
    63
    1.00

    Leighton Baines

    The left-back was caught on his heels for Chile's first goal and looked suspect defensively throughout. Offered little threat in attack.

  • Phil Jones
    30
    51
    2.00

    Phil Jones

    Made some crucial last-ditch blocks but sometimes caught on his heels before being replaced by Smalling in the second-half.

  • Adam Lallana
    78
    19
    2.50

    Adam Lallana

    A reasonable enough international debut for the Southampton man. Some neat touches and a deflected shot just wide before being replaced by Barkley.

  • Frank Lampard
    34
    52
    2.00

    Frank Lampard

    The man of the moment was presented with his 100th cap before kick-off but his performance was largely ineffectual. Accurate enough passing but made few of his customary late runs into the box.

  • James Milner
    20
    56
    2.00

    James Milner

    A typically workmanlike display in central midfield from the Manchester City man. Covered plenty of ground but was missing creativity in possession.

  • Jack Wilshere
    49
    49
    2.00

    Jack Wilshere

    Showed his quality in patches but the Arsenal man's passing was often inaccurate - perhaps a reflection of the poor movement in front of him.

  • Jay Rodriguez
    24
    53
    1.50

    Jay Rodriguez

    England's third debutant never looked comfortable. Lacked ambition on the ball but worked hard defensively to support Johnson.

  • Wayne Rooney
    57
    53
    2.50

    Wayne Rooney

    Tried to pull the strings dropping deep from his role as the main striker. Looked the most likely to unlock the Chile defence but delayed on the ball too much.

Substitutions

  • Chris Smalling
    31
    39
    2.50

    Chris Smalling

    Strong and powerful after replacing Jones in the 57th minute.

  • Andros Townsend
    19
    50
    2.00

    Andros Townsend

    Came on for Rodriguez in the 57th minute. Direct running but lost the ball too often.

  • Jordan Henderson
    39
    39
    2.50

    Jordan Henderson

    Some nice moments after replacing Lampard in the 71st minute.

  • Ross Barkley
    31
    23

    Ross Barkley

    Came on for Lallana 13 minutes from time.

  • Tom Cleverley
    24
    48
    2.50

    Tom Cleverley

    Little impact after coming on for Wilshere in the 71st minute.

  • Jermain Defoe
    15
    48
    2.50

    Jermain Defoe

    No action of note after replacing Milner in 66th minute.

  • Claudio Bravo
    33
    3
    3.00

    Claudio Bravo

    Made some rather unconventional saves for the cameras and couldn't hold on to the ball - but he managed to keep England at bay.

  • Eugenio Esteban Mena Reveco
    20
    2
    3.00

    Eugenio Esteban Mena Reveco

    Fantastic cross from the left to set up Sanchez's first goal and handled England defensively with few problems.

  • Marcos González
    20
    2
    3.00

    Marcos González

    Shaky start from the centre-back but improved immensely after the first 15 minutes to deny Rooney and Co space around the edge of the box.

  • C. Aránguiz
    18
    5
    2.50

    C. Aránguiz

    Classy performance in central midfield as he showed great technical ability before being replaced at half-time through injury.

  • Gary Medel
    33
    6
    2.50

    Gary Medel

    The Cardiff man dropped back into a central defensive role and excelled. Aggressive as ever and relative lack of height caused no issues.

  • Jean Beausejour
    20
    7
    2.50

    Jean Beausejour

    Got in to some excellent positions on the left flank but his final ball was terrible. Did force Forster into a good diving save with a fierce strike across goal in the first-half.

  • Marcelo Díaz
    25
    3
    3.00

    Marcelo Díaz

    Very tidy display in central midfield. Goalbound shot blocked in the build-up to Chile's opening goal.

  • Mauricio Isla
    31
    4
    3.00

    Mauricio Isla

    Defended solidly especially against the threat of Baines and his ambition and delivery on the counter-attack troubled England. Replaced by Jara in the 59th minute.

  • Mati Fernández
    29
    6
    3.00

    Mati Fernández

    Impressive performance in midfield as he broke up England attacks and looked to start counter-attacks. Replaced due to injury at half-time.

  • Alexis Sánchez
    158
    7
    4.50

    Alexis Sánchez Top of the Match

    Stunning display capped with the only two goals of the game. Opened the scoring with a sharp run and header in the seventh minute before sealing the win with a lovely chip over Forster in the dying moments. Always looked the most dangerous player on the pitch. Had the speed, trickery and confidence the England players sorely lacked.

  • Edu Vargas
    33
    4
    2.50

    Edu Vargas

    Decent movement and some nice touches in attack before being substituted in the 71st minute.

Substitutions

  • Gonzalo Jara
    16
    6
    2.50

    Gonzalo Jara

    Had no trouble after coming on for Isla in the 59th minute.

  • Carlos Carmona
    14
    6
    2.50

    Carlos Carmona

    Steady display to help Chile see out the game after coming on at the start of the second-half.

  • F. Gutiérrez
    14
    4
    3.00

    F. Gutiérrez

    The half-time substitute settled quickly, pressed the England midfielders well and comfortable on the ball.

  • J. Fuenzalida
    15
    4
    2.50

    J. Fuenzalida

    Came on for Beausejour with eight minutes remaining.

  • C. Muñoz
    13
    5
    2.50

    C. Muñoz

    Led the line with energy after coming on for Vargas in the 71st minute.
