Declan Rice Was Left Hanging For Agonising Period Of Time By Harry Kane In England Celebration

Some say that Declan Rice is still waiting for a high five from England skipper Harry Kane.

After six international games without scoring, Kane notched the opener in England's 2-0 win over Albania last night.

He headed home Luke Shaw's perfect cross in the 38th minute and was unsurprisingly mobbed by teammates. But while there were high fives with the likes of Raheem Sterling, Phil Foden and Harry Maguire, poor Rice was left hanging for a long long time.

Rice was behind Kane with his hand out but the Spurs striker's vision wasn't at its usual standard.

He didn't see the 22-year-old whatsoever and it was hilariously awkward. And of course, with the game being shown live on ITV, it didn't take long for Rice to become a meme.

In fact, Mason Mount, scorer of England's second goal and long-time best mate of Rice, poked fun at him on social media.

But Rice was well aware that he was getting the "hello darkness my old friend" treatment and an exchange with Kane saw the latter apologise for his oversight.

Still seeing the funny side, Mount posted a picture of Rice on England's plane with his hand still out for the high-five that never came.

Rice will be hoping he doesn't suffer the same feat against Poland on Wednesday, when England look to make it three wins from three in this batch of World Cup qualifiers.

The high-five gate was all in good humour, unlike Anthony Martial's snubbing of teammate Kylian Mbappe for France last night.

Frustrated after going off injured against Kazakhstan, he refused a handshake from Mbappe, who looked very surprised and confused in equal measure.
