Declan Rice's Conversation With Soucek And Coufal Interrupted By Face Mask-Wielding Official

Declan Rice's post-match reunion with West Ham teammates Tomas Soucek and Vladimir Coufal was hilariously interrupted by a face mask-wielding official.


Rice got the better of Soucek and Coufal as England beat Czech Republic 1-0 to top Group D to secure a spot in the last-16 of Euro 2020.

But the trio enjoyed a conversation following Tuesday's clash, with an official briefly interrupting their moment to hand face masks to the players.

The official approached Rice and handed him a face mask, with the star midfielder swiftly putting it on before Soucek and Coufal did the same.

Credit to the man who took it upon himself to make sure the England camp stay well clear of another isolation fiasco.


While they were socially distanced during their catch-up, an image shows Rice, Soucek and Coufal side-by-side for a photo.

Of course, it comes after Mason Mount and Ben Chilwell were forced to self-isolate after they were in contact with Covid-positive Billy Gilmour.

Gareth Southgate branded the situation involving Mount and Chilwell 'bizarre' in a scathing assessment.


He told ITV: "We just have to get on with it.

"It is a bizarre situation, they have spent 120 seconds too long in a fairly open space. It is full of contradictions for me, but we will get on with it.

"I don't understand it because there are teams travelling around by planes, coach and by bus in enclosed spaces for hours and our two boys have been pinged. I really don't get it."

England resume their campaign in a knockout match against the second-placed team in Group F, which could be France, Germany, Portugal or Hungary.
