Gareth Southgate’s England were poor once again as they were held by Denmark in a dull 0-0 draw in Copenhagen on Tuesday night.

The personnel in the Three Lions’ 3-4-3 saw them struggle in the opening period, with the hosts undoubtedly the superior side.

The visitors improved following Mason Mount’s arrival on the hour mark, but they failed to work any clear-cut openings before Harry Kane had his effort cleared off the line by Mathias Jorgensen after Andreas Christensen misjudged Kieran Trippier’s ‘thump’ in behind.

Let’s get into some player ratings from what was a pretty drab international fixture.
