West Ham United star Declan Rice looked like he wanted the ground to swallow him up in a video from the England camp.

Rice was rewarded for his superb season with West Ham by being called up by Gareth Southgate last week.

It came after he controversially switched allegiance from Ireland.

The midfielder was handed his debut too as a second half substitute in the 5-0 win over the Czech Republic on Friday night.

Rice impressive for club and country

Rice impressed and looked very much at home among his new teammates.

He looked less comfortable on the team bus after the game, though.

That’s if a video posted by Leicester City’s Ben Chilwell on social media is anything to go by.

The hilarious footage showed the England squad making Rice regret his goal celebration from the recent win against Newcastle United.

England teammates make Rice regret Gun Lean celebration

The team put Drill music star Russ’s Gun Lean song on the team bus stereo system.


And Chilwell filmed as they teased Rice over his Gun Lean celebration dance asking the Hammer to reenact it.

As the bus burst into laughter Rice looks mortified and tries to cover his face with his hood.

Teasing shows how quickly Rice has been embraced

Rice explained to FA TV last week that he knows Russ and told him he would do the celebration next time he scored.

The video appeared as a live story on Chilwell’s Instagram and is now no longer available to view.

But it was all in good faith and showed just how much the England team have taken to the West Ham star.

Indeed players from the Hammers’s rivals Spurs have been going out of their way to make Rice feel settled.

Rice is expected to feature from the bench again when England play Montenegro on Tuesday.
