England will play their second World Cup warm-up match of the offseason on Wednesday, taking on fellow qualifiers Ecuador.

It's loosely a rematch of the 2006 edition's round of 16 matchup, but more a second chance for Roy Hodgson's men to step up their fitness and tactical readiness for the tournament proper later this month.

What system will the Three Lions trial, who will play and who looks closest to securing a starting spot?

We will be live rating the England players as the substitutes trickle in.

Foster: First thing he did was pick the ball out the back of his net. Distribution poor.

Milner: Struggled with Montero, touch was off, looked exhausted early on. No better in midfield.

Shaw: Contributed to the mess-up for Ecuador's first goal, looked quite poor overall.

Jones: Committed, but didn't make much of an impact overall.

Smalling: Blamed for the goal after losing his man. 

Lampard: Did OK as a conduit for possession; lacked impact defensively. Looked out of place.

Wilshere: Did very, very little on the ball. Quite the disappointing effort. Subbed off injured.

Oxlade-Chamberlain: The best player on the pitch by half-time. Full of energy, creativity and running.

Barkley: Very silky, quick and technical. A real live-wire on the ball. Awesome showing.

Rooney: Looked awful up until the one-yard tap-in ball, then looked a man-possessed afterward.

Lambert: Passed well, linked well, moved well. Hit the post.
