Only one ex-Wanderer is left at Euro 2016. You can probably work out who.

Blerim Dzemaili

Dzemaili had started all three group games but after not really making too much impact, was dropped. He came on for Breel Embolo after 58 minutes, but couldn’t help the Swiss as they crashed out on penalties to Poland.

Rating: 6/10

Jonathan Walters

An injury hit tournament, Walters made just his second appearance of Euro 2016 coming off the bench for the Republic of Ireland. But it was at a time it was all going pear-shaped for the Boys In Green. They had just blown a lead to go 2-1 down when he came on, then came Shane Duffy’s red card. Walters could do little to halt the momentum.

Rating: 6/10

Vladimir Weiss

Played the first half against Germany but couldn’t really do anything to hurt the dominant world champions.

Rating: 6/10

Jan Gregus

Came on for Weiss for the second half. As above, quite frankly.

Rating: 6/10

Gary Cahill

Probably aside from the two goals (the second which is Joe Hart’s fault alone), England weren’t that uncomfortable defensively. Hence I’m still giving Cahill a decent score

Rating: 6/10

Daniel Sturridge

Despite it being settled in about 2013 that Sturridge was not a wide man, Roy Hodgson still decided Sturridge would play out wide. And it showed, with a yellow card to boot.

Rating: 5/10

Jack Wilshere

Repaced Eric Dier for some reason at half time. We’ll never know. Was poor as well.

Rating: 5/10

Eidur Gudjohnsen

An unused substitute. But the only ex-Bolton player left at Euro 2016 now. So let’s hope Eidur gets some game time against France on Sunday.
