West Ham midfielder Declan Rice has established himself as a regular for both club and country despite his tender age and has once again been receiving plaudits after another performance beyond his years. 

Partnered alongside Leeds United ace Kalvin Phillips in central midfield, Rice put in a barnstorming display on Sunday evening as England overcame Albania 2-0 in Tirana.

Apart from being left in the lurch during a goal celebration, the 22-year-old was an integral part of what was a relatively dominant performance from Gareth Southgate’s side.

Rice won all three aerial duels, completed a remarkable 97 per cent of all passes and earned a rating of 7.8 (Sofascore).

These were certainly suitably impressed…
