The 22-year-old cut a composed figure in the engine room of the pitch with England fans praising his performance in the World Cup qualifier.
Declan Rice's ball control has improved massively. He's now very calm under pressure. And what I like about him is the fact he's very consistent with his game and very durable, rarely gets injured and young. The fact that he has huge room for improvement is incredible. pic.twitter.com/ea534mar7b- Vince:tm: (@Blue_Footy) March 31, 2021
