Tottenham fans criticise Declan Rice’s showing in England win

Premiership Picks

A number of Tottenham Hotspur fans have criticised the performance of Declan Rice in England’s 5-3 win over Kosovo on Tuesday night.

Rice, who switched his allegiance from the Republic of Ireland to represent England, has seemingly developed into Gareth Southgate’s number one holding midfielder.

The West Ham United midfielder boasted a pass success rate of 92% and made two tackles during his 90 minutes on the field against Kosovo, according to WhoScored.

However, it would be fair to say that the 20-year-old did not provide his defence with much protection as Kosovo netted three times at St Mary’s.

It is not all that surprising that the Spurs fans have had a go at Rice when considering that the youngster is playing ahead of their very own Harry Winks.

Tuesday’s clash did not bring the finest defensive performance from England, and many Tottenham supporters have put some of the blame on Rice.
