England Stars Absolutely 'Cook' Declan Rice In Immaculate Rondo, He Hilariously Responds

England fans can't get enough of the immaculate rondo training drill ahead of their international fixtures.

The Three Lions are preparing for Nations League matches against the likes of Hungary, Germany and Italy.

And it appears the players are looking sharp judging by the rondo, which featured Jack Grealish, Phil Foden, Mason Mount, Kalvin Phillips​, Conor Gallagher and Jarrod Bowen​. ​

Declan Rice and Conor Coady were in the middle and tasked with intercepting the ball. 

But they didn't stand a chance, with the likes of Grealish, Foden and Mount running rings around the two England boys in the middle. 

The England stars completed over 20 one-touch passes, with Foden producing some absolutely delicate touches. 

There were a couple of back-heels from Mount and Grealish, who reacted on social media after footage emerged online. 

Rice also reacted on Twitter as he poked fun at himself. 

"Absolute washing mashing in the middle​," he tweeted. 

England fans online loved the rondo. 

One Twitter user wrote: "This is outrageous."​

A second tweeted: "We're winning the World Cup."​

A third referenced Man City boss Pep Guardiola, saying: "For anyone who doubts the effect that Pep Guardiola has had on the Premier League."​

A fourth added: "English football has changed..."​

Gareth Southgate will be hoping the likes of Grealish, Foden and Mount keep the same sharpness in their upcoming matches. 

England travel to Hungary on June 4 before heading to Germany a few days later. 

Southgate's team then host Italy and Hungary on June 11 and June 14 respectively.
