Harry Kane buried a header in the 86th minute to give the Three Lions a 2-0 lead and seal their place in the quarter-finals of Euro 2020.
Wild scenes followed inside Wembley and Kane's teammates swarmed him in the corner - but Rice couldn't join them.
The West Ham United midfielder was clearly struggling with cramp but managed to hobble a few steps before collapsing to his knees, in a Platoon-esque manner.
Even if England win the whole damn thing, Declan Rice succumbing to cramp while trying to join the goal celebration will forever be the highlight of these Euros- Richard Innes (@bigrichinnes) June 30, 2021
Rice looked up to the sky in glee before then rolling on his back and stretching his leg.
Jordan Henderson replaced the 22-year-old seconds later after an inspired performance alongside Kalvin Phillips.
He was booked inside the first ten minutes but went about the rest of his game in a composed manner.
Fans have reacted to the footage and they think Rice has all the makings of a future England captain.
Gave his all as always.

Rice spoke following the game and admitted it was 'incredible' to knock out Germany on home soil in front of a crowd.
"It's history, all the players have been asked about the previous games with Germany but today we created our own bit of history," he said per Manchester Evening News.
"Gary Neville was saying these things don't come round often and we took the most of that opportunity and it was a pleasure to be out there."
He continued: "It's incredible. A lot of people, if you look at the group stage, have written us off not scoring enough goals, you read a lot of it then put it to the back of your mind and want to prove people wrong.
"Tonight in front of a full house, everyone had that fire in their belly. For one, knock Germany out and two get us through to the next round."
