Dominic Calvert-Lewin stole the show on his England debut at Wembley.
The Everton forward grabbed the first-goal of the game by nodding home a perfect cross from the impressive Jack Grealish as the home side cruised to a 3-0 victory.
Conor Coady and Danny Ings also found the back of the net for the first time for their country, as Ryan Giggs watched his Wales side fall to defeat against the powerful Three Lions.
Daily Star Sport have now ranked the players from both teams on their performances, and it will make for pretty reading for Southgate following what has been another testing week.
England player ratings
NICK POPE 7 – Alert when needed but didn’t have a whole lot to do on his big chance to shine
KIERAN TRIPPIER 7 – Captained his country and created one of the goals before getting rest
JOE GOMEZ 6 – Had a stinker for Liverpool against Aston Villa and looked out of sorts again here
CONOR COADY 7 – Yelled his guts out as ever trying to organise his back three and popped up with a rare goal
MICHAEL KEANE 6 – Has looked the part for Everton this season but not always on the same wavelength as his team-mates here
BUKAYO SAKA 6 – A bag of nerves to begin with, putting his side in trouble on more one occasion
HARRY WINKS 5 – Not the answer to the problem of England’s lack of a playmaker
KALVIN PHILLIPS 6 – Failed to click next to Winks but rarely gave it away and looked as composed as ever
JACK GREALISH 9 – Took command to create the breakthrough and continue his brilliant club form
DANNY INGS 8 – Scored almost as soon as he was moved up front after starting in a deeper role
DOMINIC CALVERT-LEWIN 8 – On fire for Everton so far this season and celebrated his debut with yet another goal

Mings (for Gomez 58) – Header created a goal

Wales player ratings
WAYNE HENNESSEY 6 – A spectator for long spells. Nothing he could do for the goals
CONNOR ROBERTS 5 – Certainly got stuck in. Booked for a late one on Bukayo Saka.
JOE RODON 5 – On verge of a move to Tottenham but lost Calvert-Lewin for the opening goal
CHRIS MEPHAM 5 – Never looked comfortable. England’s forwards caused him all sorts of problems
BEN DAVIES 7 – Skipper burst forward whenever he could down the left. Steady as ever
ETHAN AMPADU 6 – A rising star. Pressed hard and used the ball well in the engine room
JOE MORRELL 6 – Spirited. Stuck to his task well and showed a real competitive nature.
JONNY WILLIAMS 6 – Full of energy and a real nuisance blocking off passing lanes and making life difficult
TYLER ROBERTS 6 – Helped his team control the tempo early on. One to watch
RABBI MATONDO 6 – A willing runner and showed he could beat a man but forgot his shooting boots
KIEFFER MOORE 6 – Caused problems with his movement before injury struck and he was forced off
N Williams (for Moore 40) 6 – Straight into the action
Cabango (for Rodon 46) 6 – Did his best fighting a losing battle
