Joe Hart was clearly the star man but how did the rest of Gareth Southgate's team fare.

JOE HART: After a quiet night against Malta, the goalkeeper had to put in an all-action display to secure England a point. Produced some remarkable saves. 9/10

KYLE WALKER: The marauding Tottenham right-back summed up his frustrating night by hitting a cross well over late in the first half. 6

GARY CAHILL: Looked flustered on the night of his 50th international cap and was fortunate to come away with a clean sheet, as well as 90 minutes under his belt. 5

JOHN STONES: The Manchester City centre-back was England's best defensive outfield player, but that is not much of a badge of honour. 6

DANNY ROSE: Back in the starting line-up after Ryan Bertrand's hamstring injury, he struggled to make an impact and wasted a fine late chance. 6

ERIC DIER: Displaced Wayne Rooney in the line-up but had a poor game. At times guilty of gifting Slovenia the ball all too easily, with a nightmarish 10th minute the peak. 5

JORDAN HENDERSON: Led the side out for the first time in the absence of captain Rooney, but he tried to be too much to too many. Busy but that is about it. 5

THEO WALCOTT: Struggled to make a telling impact against Malta but got another chance - one he failed to grasp. 5

DELE ALLI: Kept in the number 10 position behind Daniel Sturridge but often anonymous. Rene Krhin kept a constant eye on him, but could have shown for the ball more. 6

JESSE LINGARD: Gareth Southgate was suitably impressed by the winger on his debut but his follow-up was less captivating. 6

DANIEL STURRIDGE: A nuisance in the box but unable to really test Slovenia's outstanding goalkeeper Jan Oblak. 6


ANDROS TOWNSEND (for Walcott, 62): Injected enthusiasm into the attack as soon as he was introduced. 6

WAYNE ROONEY (for Alli, 73): Close to scoring soon after his introduction. Settled things a little. 6

MARCUS RASHFORD (for Sturridge, 82): A change that was crying out to be made, but came too late. 6
