Declan Rice received stick from West Ham players after Kroos Twitter interaction

Rice will be desperate to pit his wits against one of the very best in the game. He will back himself to come out on top as well such is his confidence and belief in his own ability.

At the same time, however, the Hammers ace is very respectful of Toni Kroos. he posted the below tweet in April when Kroos delivered a midfield masterclass in the Champions League:

The German legend responded the same night:

“I can’t remember what my tweet was actually but I woke up to (Kroos) saying ‘Thanks mate.’ It was a good moment to be fair and the lads at West Ham were giving me a bit [of stick] for it.”

Let’s hope that Kroos turns the tables and posts a tweet about Rice’s brilliance for England after tonight’s game.

At West Ham, we all know just how good the 22-year-old is. It seems as though the rest of the country are starting to realise that now as well.

Come on Dec, show everyone how good you are tonight! If Rice gets the better of Kroos in midfield, England will have a great chance of beating Germany.

The stage is set for the West Ham star to shine. And he will be relishing the challenge that awaits him.
