England 3-0 Bosnia player ratings: Ebere Eze emerging as secret weapon, Cole Palmer makes case for Euro 2024 start

England secured their first victory of 2024 against Bosnia & Herzegovina despite unconvincing first-half; Eberechi Eze, Cole Palmer and Trent Alexander-Arnold impress but Jarrod Bowen and James Maddison face an anxious wait.

England kicked off their European Championship preparation with a 3-0 victory over Bosnia and Herzegovina at St James’ Park thanks to goals from Cole Palmer, Trent Alexander-Arnold and captain Harry Kane.

An experimental side stepped up their pace after a dull first half and Palmer, who scored nine penalties for Chelsea this season, broke the deadlock with his first England goal in the 60th minute from the spot after Ezri Konsa was tugged down in the box.

Liverpool’s Alexander-Arnold, who was one of the bright spots on the night, doubled their lead in the 85th minute with his third goal for England when he fired home from a tight angle. Kane scored four minutes later when he poked the ball in from close range after a scramble in front of goal.

 

Jarrod Bowen admits he had nerves ahead of England’s match against Bosnia and Herzegovina as he bids to secure a spot in Gareth Southgate’s Euros squad.

Several key players including midfielder Jude Bellingham, who won the Champions League with Real Madrid on Saturday, were missing, but the match was much about manager Gareth Southgate deciding on which seven players he must cut before Friday’s deadline for their 26-man squad.
