Player ratings for the Feyenoord victory

Last updated : 14 November 2002 By Martyn Elliott

Hey Bobby we've scored!

Shay Given 8/10

Sir Bobby rightly chose the Irishman ahead of Steve Harper and he did not let us down. Didn’t have a prayer with either goal but made some vital stops.

Andy Griffin 7/10

Came out on top in his running battle with Lurling and proved once again why he has established himself as a regular.

Aaron Hughes 7/10

Yet another solid performance from Mr Consistent, will he ever have a bad day. Sven must wish he was English.

Nikos Dabizas 9/10

Truly outstanding, a rock at the heart of defence. Nik’s best game for a very long time.

Andy O’Brien 7/10

By no means an error free performance, but certainly his best this season. Can not be faulted for his commitment.

Hugo Viana 7/10

Good performance from the out of position midfielder, but struggled when he had to defend. Superbly taken goal.

Jermaine Jenas 8/10

Justified his selection with another high energy performance. It won’t be long before he joins Kieron in the full England squad.

Gary Speed 8/10

Another colossal performance from Speed, lets hope there’s a few more years in him yet.

Kieron Dyer 8/10

Created two of the goals and was a threat to the Feyenoord defence even when we were under the cosh. Showed signs of being back to his dynamic best.

Alan Shearer 7/10

Didn’t have many chances, but was a constant threat in the air. You could see how much the victory meant to him at the end. Top man!

Craig Bellamy 9/10

What’s he going to do when he’s fit? Two fantastically finished goals and he was a constant thorn in the side of Feyenoord.


Olivier Bernard 7/10

A fleeting but vital appearance, Bernard won the ball well just when we needed it.

Man-of-the-match Craig Bellamy (of course)

Who was your man-of-the-match?
