How did you rate the players[/img]

How did they rate individually? Here's BBC chief football writer Phil McNulty's verdict from Wembley, along with the ratings you provided courtesy of our player rater...
Jordan Pickford (goalkeeper) 6
Hardly over-worked but handling safe and no chance with Nigeria's goal. Great confidence with the ball at his feet will have pleased Southgate.Your rating: 6.13
Kieran Trippier (right wing-back) 7
Real threat going forward and from set-pieces. Satisfying performance. Your rating: 5.94
Kyle Walker (centre-back) 6
Adds vital pace to that three-man defensive system but still growing into an unaccustomed role. Your rating: 5.75
John Stones (centre-back) 6
Elegant but occasionally wasteful in possession - and that could be punished by better opposition.Your rating: 5.33
Gary Cahill (centre-back) 8
Relished his return to England colours with a goal and solid defensive display.Your rating: 6.45
Ashley Young (left wing-back) 6
Young is an attacking threat but how will he fare against elite opposition if he plays in Russia? Your rating: 5.49
Dele Alli (central midfield) 7
Showed real quality and answered some questions about his position in England's World Cup team.Your rating: 5.62
Eric Dier (central midfield) 6
Solid and unspectacular as ever but did the job. Southgate has an interesting conundrum for midfield anchor with Jordan Henderson also in the equation.Your rating: 5.44
Jesse Lingard (forward) 6
Busy as ever and may just be England's World Cup wildcard. Your rating: 5.85
Harry Kane (forward) 6
England's captain added to his international goals tally and worked hard. Your rating: 6.31
Raheem Sterling (forward) 5
Busy but too often wasteful with the end product. Mark off for a dreadful dive. Your rating: 5.29
Ruben Loftus-Cheek (for Lingard 67 minutes): No real chance to make an impact. 5.Danny Rose (for Young 67 minutes): Needs longer to stake his claim. 5.Danny Welbeck (for Kane 72 minutes): Couple of direct runs but few opportunities. 5.Marcus Rashford (for Sterling 72 minutes): Too late to get into the game. 5.Fabian Delph (for Alli 81 minutes): No rating.
