Player Ratings: England 6-0 Andorra

The Three Lions cruised past Andorra at Wembley to maintain their 100 per cent record in World Cup Qualifying. rates the performers …

Green: 6.0 - May never have an easier night, hardly saw the ball and only touched it a handful of times.  

Johnson: 9.0 - A super showing, involved in four goals, linked really well with Walcott and supplied great deliveries into the box.

Lescott: 6.5 - Defensively had little to do and had a couple of chances to score but couldn’t take either.

Terry: 6.5 – Like Lescott he wasn't tested at the back but might have scored with a decent chance after the break.

Cole: 7.0 - Spent more time in the Andorran half than his own but looked a lot happier after the break with Ashley Young in front of him.  

Walcott: 7.5 – A much better display from the Gunner who disappointed against Kazakhstan. His pace and trickery caused all sorts of problems and he linked well with Johnson, particularly to set up Lampard’s goal.

Beckham: 8.0 - His 100th start for England and a super display. Used the ball really well and handed Defoe a tap-in with a free-kick that Alvarez couldn’t handle.

Lampard: 7.5 -
Good movement and passing and scored the second with a strong finish. Could have had a second himself with a fine strike on the hour mark.

Gerrard: 6.5 - Not his most influential showing and looked as if he was maybe trying a little too hard. Had his chances on goal but not his night and replaced at half-time.

Crouch: 7.5 - Replaced the rested Heskey and a decent outing. Had plenty of chances but finally got on the score sheet late on with a goal his performance probably deserved.

Rooney: 8.5 - Looked really sharp, hit the post, before opening the scoring with a strong header. Scored a glorious second with a lovely volley before departing at the break.  


Defoe: 8.0 - Had plenty of chances before bagging a brace. Scored the fourth with a good leap and header and added a second a simple tap-in after Alvarez fumbled the ball.

Young: 7.5 - Given the second half to strut his stuff and responded with a bright showing, providing plenty of pace and delivery down the left flank.

Bridge: n/a


Alvarez: 7.0 - Conceded six in his last outing for Andorra but also made some good stops from Walcott, Gerrard and Beckham, in the first half and Defoe and Lampard in the second. Will be disappointed he didn’t deal with Beckham’s free kick but a performance he can be proud of.

Ayala: 5.0 - Wore the same colour boots as Rooney, but the similarities ended there. Struggled in the second half and found Ashley Young a real handful.

I Lima: 4.5 - A decent tackle to prevent Gerrard scoring early on but was overrun afterwards and struggled to cope with England’s movement. Had an ongoing battle with Crouch.

Sonerjee: 4.0 – Struggled against the pace of England’s attack and was lucky to escape a handball at the end of the first half.

A Lima: 4.0 - His last international showing and had his hands very full. Lost Rooney for the third goal before being replaced just after half time.  
Garcia: 5.0 - Helped out his defence as best he could but was simply outclassed.

Jimenez: 5.5- Made some decent interceptions but it was one-way traffic.

Andorra: 5.5 – Battled hard and picked up a booking for his troubles.  A decent challenge forced Lescott to head a good chance over.

Vieira: 5.5 – A hard-working display but was frequently second-best.

Moreno: 5.0 - Offered little going forwards although he did have a shot on goal, a wayward effort from 30 yards on the half hour mark.

Silva:  5.0 -The striker had a thankless task up front. Worked hard enough but received no support and instead ended up helping out his defence.
