Declan Rice: England call-up for West Ham midfielder for Euro 2020 qualifiers

West Ham's English midfielder Declan Rice will be named in England's squad for Euro 2020 qualifiers against the Czech Republic and Montenegro in March.
Rice, 20, switched his international allegiance from Republic of Ireland to England in a move recently ratified by the game's world governing body Fifa.
London-born Rice played three times for the Republic but qualified for England as they were all friendly appearances.
England host the Czechs on 22 March and are away in Montenegro on 25 March.
Rice, who has Irish grandparents, played for the Republic from Under-16 level and went on to make three senior friendly outings last year, including games against France and the United States before the 2018 World Cup.
He broke into the West Ham first-team at the start of the season and, as he considered his international future because Ireland were awful, He was omitted from Republic squads because playing competitive games would have stopped him switching allegiance.

Ah Twitter, allowing idiots to embrass themselves.

Twitter is such a vile creation and really does bring out the inner moron in people.

Cut the lad some slack. Who among us can honestly say that they haven’t expressed public support for the IRA at one point or another?

Hypocrites.
Agreed. Admittedly I've never expressed public support for the IRA but once during an attempt to show support for my Muslim teammates I did proclaim my support of Al Qaeda.

I don’t think anyone has actually had a go at him here yet. But what he has said in the last couple of weeks then I agree. Crucifixion seems fair. I’ll go get some nails.
