England vs Bosnia Player Ratings

England vs Bosnia Player Ratings- Palmer, Arnold, and Harry Kane Score in Win

England prepared for this summer’s European Championships with a 3-0 friendly win against Bosnia and Herzegovina on Monday (June 3). Gareth Southgate’s men were made to work for their win against the Balkans nation, who put in a dogged defensive display at St James’ Park. Cole Palmer (60′,P), Trent Alexander-Arnold (85′) and Harry Kane (89′) were on the scoresheet for the Three Lions. Here are the England vs Bosnia Player Ratings:-

England Player Ratings

Jordan Pickford – 6| The Everton goalkeeper didn’t have much to do but looked calm when in possession.

Ezri Konsa – 7| An impressive performance from the Aston Villa centre-back playing in a less familiar right-back role. He won the penalty which Palmer converted, also winning four of five ground duels.

Lewis Dunk – 6| A fine outing from the Brighton defender but nothing too eye-catching. He won his two ground and aerial duels with England rarely being put under the cosh.

Marc Guehi – 6| Similarly wasn’t too involved in the game because of Bosnia’s lack of threat but did get away with one momentary lapse in concentration. The Crystal Palace man made two tackles and one interception while also picking up a booking.

Kieran Tripper – 5| The Newcastle United right-back was captain for the night but never felt truly comfortable in his less familiar left-back role. He made one tackle and won two of three ground duels.

Trent Alexander-Arnold – 7| Gareth Southgate has continued to experiment with the Liverpool star in midfield but he performed much better once moved to right-back. He was superb in possession and his goal was the pick of the bunch on the night.

Conor Gallagher – 8| The Chelsea midfielder was lively throughout and played with his usual grit, making one key pass and winning seven of nine ground duels. He may have given Southgate a headache as he’s spoilt for choice in midfield ahead of Euro 2024.

Eberechi Eze – 8.5 (Man of the Match)| A superb showing from Crystal Palace’s attacker who may have booked his ticket to Germany for the Euros. He was England’s brightest spark until coming off in the 63rd minute. He completed three of five dribble attempts and won five of nine ground duels.

Jarrod Bowen – 6| A surprisingly quiet showing from the West Ham United winger although he showed improvement as the game wore on. He made two key passes and missed one big chance.

Ollie Watkins – 4.5| The Aston Villa frontman failed to take his opportunity as he was wasteful at St James’ Park. He had three shots, with two off-target and he continues to struggle to replicate his club form on the international stage.

Cole Palmer – 7| All eyes were on the Chelsea star after a stunning Young Player of the Year-winning Premier League campaign but he was quiet by his standards. Took his penalty well and also made two key passes.


Harry Kane – 6| The England captain came on in the 62nd minute and failed to get a foothold in the game after a grueling Bayern Munich season. He unsurprisingly got on the scoresheet with a customary international goal.

James Maddison – 6| A fine outing from the Tottenham Hotspur attacker and was involved in the second goal of the night.

Adam Wharton – 7| The young Crystal Palace midfielder was equally as impressive as Eze given the amount of time he spent on the pitch. May have played his way into another start against Iceland.

Jack Grealish – 7| The Manchester City star played with attacking intent as soon as he came on. He found Alexander-Arnold was a clever cross for the second goal.

Jarrad Branthwaite – 6| A tidy display from the young Everton defender on his debut.

Joe Gomez – 5.5| Was an improvement on Trippier but his display was telling of England’s need for Luke Shaw to return for the Euros.

Bosnia Player Ratings

Nikola Vasilj – 6| The St Pauli goalkeeper was relatively quiet until the second half. He produced five saves and was commanding for Bosnia despite defeat.

Ermin Bicakcic – 5| Eze gave him a torrid time and didn’t really get too involved in the proceedings. He won just two of seven aeiral duels but made two clearances.

Anel Ahmedhodzic – 7| The Sheffield United centre-back was a standout performer for Bosnia and looked solid at the back. He made two tackles and blocked two shots, and was happy with his performance.

Nikola Katic – 7| He was just as assured in defense as Ahmedhodzic as he kept England at bay for the majority of the game. He made three clearances and four tackles.

Stjepan Radeljic – 7| Was similarly as brave in defense against The Three Lions and kept the likes of Ollie Watkins quiet. He made three clearances, blocked two shots and won five of seven ground and aerial duels.

Jusuf Gazibegovic – 5| Pretty aninmous throughout and couldn’t help Bosnia form any sort of threat going forward on the left flank.

Armin Gigovic – 4.5| A forgetful evening for the Midtjylland winger and he didn’t conjure up anything of note.

Dario Saric – 6| The Antalyaspor midfielder showed glimpses of promise against England and stood up the challenge of facing Gareth Southgate’s men at Wembley well. He won four of nine ground duels.

Benjamin Tahirovic – 5.5| He was at fault for giving away the spot kick that opened the floodgates for the hosts. He was performing relatively well otherwise.

Haris Hajradinovic – 5| Bosnia’s left flank was void of ideas at Wembley and he was arguably one of the main culprits.

Ermedin Demirovic – 4.5 The Augsburg striker was rarely involved and gave Jordan Pickford no issues. He didn’t manage a single shot.


Denis Huseinbasic – 6| England started to find their rhythm during his time on the pitch but that was no fault of his own. Tried to battle but was dealing with a Bosnia team whose defensive dependability ran out.

Nihad Mujakic – 5| He didn’t have to deal with Eze but was still overwhelmed by the Three Lions in the latter stages.

Haris Tabakovic – 4.5| A like for like change for Bosnia as both strikers had little impact on the game whatsoever.

Dennis Hadzikadunic – England’s late joy came once the visitors’ defense was shuffled about. He looked nervy.

Dzenis Burnic – N/A

Tarik Muharemovic – N/A
