England 0-2 Chile: Roy Hodgson and players on 'sobering' defeat

Alexis Sanchez scored twice as Chile ended England's 10-game unbeaten run with a 2-0 friendly win at Wembley.

It was a disappointing night for an experimental Three Lions side, who return to action next week when they host Germany in another friendly on Tuesday.

Here, BBC Sport's chief football writer Phil McNulty assesses the individual performances of the England players.

Fraser Forster (goalkeeper) - 6

Six out of 10

No blame for the goals and made a good save from Jean Beausejour. Did himself no harm.

Glen Johnson (right-back) - 5

Five out of 10

Returning to the side after injury but not at his best and often caught by the swift breaks of this talented Chile side.

Leighton Baines (left-back) - 5

Five out of 10

Poor performance from the defender who excelled in England's last two World Cup qualifiers. At fault for Sanchez's goal and his normally excellent set-pieces were disappointing too.

Gary Cahill (centre-back) - 5

Five out of 10

A very poor night for a defender who Roy Hodgson has counted on throughout his World Cup campaign, summed up by his error for Sanchez's second.

Phil Jones (centre-back) - 5

Five out of 10

Almost scored with an early header but his partnership with Gary Cahill was unconvincing. Did not make a case to be a central defensive starter before coming off before the hour mark with an injury.

James Milner (centre midfield) - 5

Five out of 10

A quiet night for the player Roy Hodgson turns to as the workhorse of his midfield.

Frank Lampard (centre midfield) - 6

Six out of 10

One fine first-half effort that could have brought a goal on a night when he won his 103rd cap and captained England in Steven Gerrard's absence, but otherwise subdued.

Jack Wilshere (centre midfield) - 5

Five out of 10

Worked hard as well as giving and taking a few physical challenges but no huge impact.

Adam Lallana (right midfield) - 7

Seven out of 10

Made a very good impression on his England debut. Keen to get on the ball and could have scored in the first half.

Jay Rodriguez (left midfield) - 5

Five out of 10

Quiet debut for the Southampton attacker. Did not get many chances to show what he could do.

Wayne Rooney (striker) - 6

Six out of 10

As tireless as ever but he barely received possession so struggled to produce the magic that has marked his season.


Andros Townsend (for Jay Rodriguez 57 mins) - 6

Clearly confident at this level and some lively contributions in a brief performance.

Chris Smalling (for Phil Jones 57 mins) - 5

Thrown into an experimental England side as a substitute so hardly had a chance to shine.

Jermain Defoe (for James Milner 66 mins) - 5

Anonymous in his substitute appearance.

Jordan Henderson (for Frank Lampard 71 mins) - 5

Only given 20 minutes. Not long enough to make any impression.

Tom Cleverley (for Jack Wilshere 71 mins) - 5

Same verdict as Henderson.

Ross Barkley (for Adam Lallana 77 mins) - 5

One or two nice touches in a cameo. Should have been given longer.
