Declan Rice hilariously reacts to being left hanging in England celebration

England continued their 100% start to World Cup qualifying with a 2-0 win over Albania in Tirana on Sunday.

Harry Kane and Mason Mount both got on the scoresheet for Gareth Southgate‘s side, who controlled the game for large periods.

Kane’s goal, however, created the most hilarious – and slightly unfortunate – moment of the match.

After the Spurs man had put England in front, he was quickly surrounded by his team-mates.

He high-fived Raheem Sterling and Phil Foden, before acknowledging Mount, John Stones and Luke Shaw in the celebrations.

Declan Rice, however, wasn’t quite so fortunate. In the agonising few seconds between the West Ham midfielder raising his hand for a high-five and the footage panning away, Rice was left hanging by each of his team-mates.

After the game, Rice reacted to the moment in a light-hearted fashion on Twitter.

His team-mates were also quick to respond. On his Instagram story, Mount posted a clip of Rice holding up his hand – with slow-motion footage of the moment itself.

Rice continues to impress

It was a great night for Rice on a personal level, as he produced one of his finest performances in an England shirt.

He completed 97% of his passes and also made five interceptions – more than any other player on the pitch.

It took England 38 minutes to open the scoring, when Shaw produced a first-time cross from the left for Kane to head into the bottom corner.

The Spurs striker then hit the crossbar three minutes later from Sterling’s pass, before Foden struck the post early in the second half.

England then capitalised on a mistake in the Albania defence, with Mount calmly slotting home from close range.

They then had a couple of half-chances to extend their advantage further.

A 2-0 win for Southgate’s side means they top Group I, having recorded six points from six available.

England are next in World Cup qualifying action on Wednesday, when they take on second-placed Poland at Wembley.
