PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! England fell to a first home defeat in two years as out-of-sorts Harry Maguire's sending off was compounded by Denmark centurion Christian Eriksen scoring a controversially-awarded penalty minutes later. Three days on from impressively coming back to beat Belgium to go top of their Nations League group, Gareth Southgate's side stumbled to a first defeat on home soil since September 2018. Eriksen's penalty shortly after Maguire received two bookings in 31 wretched minutes were the key moments at an empty Wembley, where Denmark held on for a 1-0 win against visibly-frustrated England. It was a galling end to October's triple-header, with the post-match focus sure to be on Maguire after a nightmare performance continued a testing period for the defender on and off the field. Here's how Standard Sport rated the players... (AP) Pickford: 5 Unnecessary presence contributed to penalty incident but hardly tested. Awful free-kick from halfway wasted England’s last chance of stealing a point. Maguire: 2 What a rut he’s in. Dropped his team in it after two bookings in opening half-hour, both for rash challenges, the second after an awful first touch. Coady: 6 Crucial early intervention to deny Dolberg and solid throughout but shift to back-four meant usual quarterback role was diminished. Denied late leveller by brilliant Kjaer clearance. (Pool via REUTERS) Walker: 6 Made bright start on right of back three and then filled in well enough at left-back, bar one lapse. Unfortunate to give away nothing penalty, not helped by his goalkeeper. James: 6 Settled quickly on first start and was England’s best player in the first half. Excellent delivery and combined nicely with Mount.

. Maitland-Niles: 5 Did nothing wrong on his first start but lost any chance to impress when sacrificed after Maguire's sending off. (POOL/AFP via Getty Images) Rice: 7 Defensively alert and showed range of passing, including one terrific ball that got Mount in behind. Header nearly set up leveller for Mount on good night for the West Ham man. Phillips: 6 Tidy enough in possession but struggled to get a handle on Eriksen and not as influential as midfield partner, who looks to be ahead in race to partner Jordan Henderson. Booked. Mount: 6 A menace in the first half and took up intelligent positions in space, though final ball was often missing. Faded after break but still took terrific Schmeichel save to deny him the equaliser. (Pool via REUTERS) Rashford: 5 Sloppy in possession and cut a frustrated figure on an awkward left flank as England’s best play came down the right. Subbed. Kane: 5 Well short of his best and caught on his heels on a couple of occasions when James delivered inviting crosses. Isolated until subs arrived but cross almost set up stoppage-time equaliser. Subs
Mings, 6: Sent on after red card to partner Coady and did everything that was asked.
Sancho, 5: Given little chance to impress as Southgate bizarrely waited until 72nd minute to make first attacking change.
Calvert-Lewin, 5: Good hold-up play even when asked to play on left of front three and like Sancho should have been on earlier.
Henderson, N/A: Booked for dissent as frustration set in.
