A late Lorenzo Insigne penalty cancelled out Jamie Vardy’s first half opener as England drew 1-1 with Italy on Tuesday night.

Two Tottenham players – Eric Dier and Kieran Trippier – started from the beginning, while Danny Rose and Dele Alli were among the substitutes.

So how did England’s Spurs contingent get on at Wembley?

Eric Dier, 7/10

Dier was tasked with shielding the defence and he was solid throughout. His passing was accurate if a little safe, and he dropped into the back three for the last few minutes without fuss following an injury to John Stones.

Kieran Trippier, 6/10

Trippier wasn’t afforded anywhere near as much freedom down the right as he was against the Netherlands last week. Still, he did little wrong here and combined quite well with Kyle Walker, the right-most of the three centre-backs, before being taken off on the hour.

Danny Rose, 6/10

Trippier’s replacement was Rose, whose introduction saw Ashley Young switched to the right. Rose looked far more comfortable and confident than he did in Amsterdam and provided a couple of useful slaloming runs, but he didn’t make much of an impact.

Dele Alli, Unused

Alli didn’t make it off the bench, which is perhaps surprising after he was only given 22 minutes Holland. Either Southgate doesn’t feel the need to trial him before the World Cup or he is making sure Alli knows his place in the starting line-up isn’t secured.
