Martin Keown believes captain Wayne Rooney was England's best player in Thursday's come-from-behind win over Wales.
Rating Rooney an 8.5/10, Keown wrote: "Was excellent pulling the strings and I think we take him for granted.
"The way he punched the ball from sideline to sideline reminded me of Paul Scholes, and it was punishing for Wales."
Regarding Smalling, who attracted a rating of 7, he added: "He is really growing into his role as a senior England player and his understanding with (Gary) Cahill is improving.
"Neither centre half had a great deal to do, but they dealt with what came along."
