England player ratings v Spain: How did Roy Hodgson's men fare in Alicante defeat?

Next picture

Joe Hart (goalkeeper): 7.5

Solid as ever. Not much he could have done with either goal but was quick to smother Juan Mata at one point, although a poor kick led to Cazorla’s goal. With his place perhaps under threat from the in-form Jack Butland, he will need to keep performing.

England’s 15-game unbeaten run came to an abrupt halt as European champions Spain gave them a lesson in possession during their 2-0 win in Alicante last night.

Goals from Mario Suarez – a quite stupendous overhead kick – and Arsenal midfielder Santi Cazorla sealed a deserved win for the hosts, with Roy Hodgson’s men left chasing shadows for much of the 90 minutes.

The defeat has raised more serious question marks about England’s Euro 2016 credentials as, despite cruising through their qualifying group, there was a distinct gap in quality between the sides.

But how did Hodgson’s players perform individually on the night?
