We look at how the former Trotters got on in the second round of group games at Euro 2016

Vladimir Weiss

Added a lot more end product to his performance against Russia than in Slovakia’s first game against Wales. A fine finish after a superb ball from Marek Hamsik saw Weiss score the opening goal in a 2-1 win.

Rating: 8/10

Jan Gregus

Once again, an unused substitute for Slovakia against Russia.

Blerim Dzemaili

Played 83 minutes of Switzerland’s 1-1 draw with Romania. Again, Dzemaili was used as a number 10 playing behind Haris Seferovic, had a few shots, but not much else going for him.

Rating: 6/10

Gary Cahill

Partnered Chris Smalling in central defence for England’s 2-1 win over Wales. Was pretty solid at the back, with the Wales goal coming from a Gareth Bale free kick. Also was a threat at the other end too.

Rating: 7/10

Daniel Sturridge

An excellent second half from Sturridge for England. Ran at Wales, had chances, then scored that winner, showing great close control, and the England fans into delirium.

Rating: 7/10

Jack Wilshere

An unused sub for England.

Jonathan Walters

Picked up an injury against Sweden, so played no part in Ireland’s 3-0 loss to Belgium in Bordeaux.

Eidur Gudjohnsen

Replaced Kolbeinn Sigthorsson late on against Hungary in the Velodrome so had little time to make any sort of real impact. He did however nearly score the winner after Gylfi Sigurdsson teed up a free kick into his path. The shot went just wide.

Rating: 5/10
