Jordan Pickford Nothing to do. 6

Kyle Walker Played a magnificent pass to tee up Harry Kane for the game’s best chance prior to the opener. 6

John Stones It is only September 2 but this may possibly his quietest game of the season. 6

Harry Maguire Quiet evening defensively but added a nice insurance goal when heading in from a corner. 7

Luke Shaw Exposed with surprising ease late in the first half during a rare Hungary foray forward but impressive that moment aside. He provided the cross for Maguire to make it 3-0. 6

Kalvin Phillips Made the interception in the lead up to Kane’s goal. Comfortable in possession and defensively steady. 7

Declan Rice Booked for a second hefty foul not long before the opening goal but he was undeterred and won the ball back in typical fashion before setting Jack Grealish away. Got on the scoresheet for the second time in an England shirt late on, albeit with help from the Hungary goalkeeper Peter Gulacsi. 8

Raheem Sterling Right place, right time yet again to break the deadlock. He had been England’s most lively attacker throughout a tame first period. 8

Mason Mount An assist and pre-assist for the Chelsea midfielder. Had been busy without looking 100% sharp before that but grew into proceedings as the evening progressed. 7

Jack Grealish The only change to the starting XI that began against Italy in the Euros final. Showed good composure in build up to Raheem Sterling’s goal after a quiet enough start. Found an extra gear when it was needed. 7

Harry Kane Fired a good chance over just before the 20 minute mark after good link up play from Grealish and Mount and then scuffed a glorious one-on-one opportunity early in the second period. But the captain then made amends by heading home Sterling’s cross bounced just over an hour in. Missed a third good chance entering the final stages. 6
