ENGLAND ended up falling short of World Cup glory.
There was much debate leading up to which formations manager Gareth Southgate should choose.
SunSport’s CHARLIE WYETT covered the Three Lions Camp throughout the tournament and caught in every minute of the action.
Here he exercises dominion over the achievements of the squad members.
Not the busiest but important saved. Perhaps he could have done better for France in Aurelien Tchouameni’s opener, but it was an excellent shot. 7
City-Star came on against Wales having not played since October 2 and did well against Kylian Mbappe. 7
Played the first two games and was OK but couldn’t complain about a drop in place. 6
Made the left-back his own. Decent tournament but he struggled against France.6
The Liverpool native only made one appearance as a substitute in the 57th minute against Wales, so little chance of making an impact.5

Outstanding World Championship. Made an excellent defense and can go home with his head held high.8th
Many questions about his selection but Gareth Southgate has been confirmed by good performances from Maguire. However, he was beaten by Olivier Giroud for France’s winner.7
Two late substitutions against Wales and Iran but little chance to shine as England didn’t play with a back three.5
Probably the young player of the tournament. Scored a goal against Iran, showing maturity beyond his years and sprinting to comfort Kane (right) after a missed penalty. Will be a great player and a future captain. Got into quarterfinals by France but couldn’t make an extra difference. 9
Started the first two games and lost his spot to Henderson. Will be a bit frustrated but still has a good international future.6
Scraped into the squad following his fitness woes and limited to two U games against Senegal and Wales.5
I rose here in Qatar. No wonder his desire to move to a top club will come true next summer. Had a great second half against France.7
Hendo was a big influence in the game against Wales. His introduction helped Bellingham flourish as the youngster had fewer defensive duties.7
Great flashes of what he’s capable of, but he’s got so much more in his locker. Couldn’t hurt France.6
Have a nice World Cup. Scored three goals and caused France a lot of problems in the second half before the exit. A great player.8th
Scored against Iran and made some decent cameo appearances. Many fans would have liked to see him earlier against France but came on late as a substitute.6
He delivered strong all-around performances and equaled Wayne Rooney’s record 53 goals. Unfortunately, Kane’s World Cup will be remembered for that penalty miss.7
Two goals against Wales and three overall. But Star was just a late sub against France and it’s clear Southgate doesn’t fully trust him.6
Looked decent against Iran but only played once more and frustratingly suffered from further fitness issues.5
Dropped after first two games, returned to England after a slump. Was a bad sub against France.5
DID NOT PLAY: Aaron Ramsdale, Nick Pope, Conor Coady, Ben White, Conor Gallagher, James Maddison.
England played excellent football under Southgate. Ultimately, they wanted to win and failed, even though it’s a matter of fine margins.7
STARMAN: Jude Bellingham
THE future for England is bright as the 19-year-old becomes one of the stars of the tournament.
He has finished first for the Three Lions in their five games in seven key categories.
From Southgate’s 26-man squad, just five players played more minutes than the Borussia Dortmund teenager.
