Has not enjoyed the smoothest of spells since his last appearance in an England shirt but this was straightforward. Rarely tested. 6
Got the nod ahead of Kieran Tripper which means he is back as a right-back after his World Cup in central defence. Lots of time to get forward. 7
Only started due to injuries but not too many problems in only his sixth senior appearance – and will start again in Montenegro. 7
Was accused by Burnley’s Matej Vydra beforehand of being the weak link but looked anything but. Composed performance. 7
Undoubtedly England’s first-choice left-back – and did not put a foot wrong. He will certainly get tougher tests than this. 7
Nice back-heel ahead of England winning a penalty but still struggle to completely impose himself on the game despite playing in a deeper position. 6
Needed treatment after a nasty whack from Tomas Soucek. He eventually gave up in the 17th minute with Ross Barkley coming on. 6
Was forced to change position from a slightly more advanced position to holding midfielder after the injury to Dier. Comfortable throughout. 7
Impressive first competitive start. Delivered with an assist although he looked marginally offside. And was a real handful in the first half. 7

Clever pass to Sancho for the opener and as ever, scored from the penalty spot. Mistake at the other end nearly gifted the Czechs a goal. 7
On fire for club – and now dazzling for his country. A hat-trick thanks to two decent goals and a deflected strike. Also won a penalty. 9
ROSS BARKLEY (for Dier, 17') 7 DECLAN RICE (for Alli, 63') 7 CALLUM HUDSON-ODOI (for Sterling, 70') 7.
Rice handed his debut and no jeers. Barkley did well enough. Encouraging debut for Hudson-Odoi.
