Ecuador 2 England 2: Player ratings from Miami
Who boosted their chances of being included in Roy Hodgson's starting XI against Italy?
James Mariner is a journalist who has been boring The Independent sports desk with mindless statistics since June 2007. Helping with various, wide-ranging desk duties (I made the tea once), supervising workies and the endless researching of panels, James has an unnatural love of all things football, and in particular the Europa League, being a Tottenham Hotspur supporter. He cites Brian Sears and Ledley King among his heroes and can even find something interesting in Burnley v Hull City. On a good day.

England were involved in a chaotic draw with Ecuador last night that had as many negatives as positives.
After going behind early in the game, England then took the lead after goals from Wayne Rooney and Rickie Lambert, only to then let it slip.

We take a look through the England team and assess their performances in Miami.
Who do you think was the best player on the night? Let us know in the comments below.
