England beat Switzerland 2-1 at Wembley Stadium last night and Rodney Marsh posted a message on Twitter about Declan Rice after the match.
Rice, 23, has firmly established himself as the most important player at West Ham over the past couple of years.
Over the last year or so, the Hammers ace has proven just how important he is to Gareth Southgate’s England team as well.
In a game of any kind of importance, he must be one of the first names on Southgate’s Three Lions team-sheet.
Rice was on the substitutes bench for the England vs Switzerland friendly clash at Wembley last night though.
The all-action midfielder came on as a second-half substitute and underlined his importance to this England team once again. What a player he has become.
Of course, the West Ham fans have known this for quite some time. It seems as though others are slowly beginning to catch on now though…
England vs Switzerland: Rodney Marsh posts Twitter message about Declan Rice
The Hammers star has received plenty of plaudits for his performances for England, especially since last summer.
The 23-year-old just keeps getting better and better.
His seismic influence for David Moyes’s side has been common knowledge since 2019. And he is now beginning to raise eyebrows every single time he takes to the pitch in an England shirt.
Rice played 30 minutes for England against Switzerland last night and put in his usual composed and assured display.
Dec’s performance piqued the interest of one pundit in particular.
Rodney Marsh played at the very highest level of the game, so he obviously knows a good player when he sees one.
He posted a message on Twitter last night after the England vs Switzerland clash at Wembley:
He’s right. But it’s strange how it has taken Marsh so long to catch on isn’t it!
Declan Rice has been producing the goods on a consistent basis for club and country for at least two years now.
It’s little wonder why West Ham value Dec at around £150 million (Daily Mail).
Let’s hope that we can keep him at the London Stadium. If he continues to raise eyebrows with his performances for England, that will make our task of keeping him at the club even harder.
If the Hammers owners show some ambition in the transfer market though, there’s every chance Rice will hang around in our opinion.
