An injury time goal from Francis Jeffers secured a thrilling 2-1 win after Christoph Metzelder levelled Joe Cole's opener in the last minute.
Former boss Peter Taylor, a pundit on Sky Sports, picked Ledley as his man of the match, describing him as 'first class'.
And manager David Platt was also full of praise. Platt said: "Stuart Taylor did exceptionally well and it was just a shame that he didn't keep a clean sheet because his performance deserved it.
"I was delighted with Joe Cole. He was a constant threat to them and Ledley King was magnificent at the back. Gareth Barry was also good."
Ledley King was outstanding as England Under-21s beat Germany in Friday night's European Championship qualifier in Freiburg.
