West Ham United midfielder Declan Rice had a mixed night for England against Kosovo.
One misplaced pass let in Kosovo for a goal in the 5-3 win, in a very disjointed England defensive performance.
Focusing on Rice's one error was pretty harsh in the context of the rest of the team's display, and his pass completion rate of 91 per cent shows he recovered well.
Rice responded to criticism on Twitter, insisting, 'everyone makes mistakes'.
Former Premier League midfielder Charlie Adam responded to Rice, praising his performance.
Don’t worry about that. Thought you were diff class tonight in holding roll— Charlie Adam (@Charlie26Adam) September 10, 2019
Rice would do well not to pay attention to criticism, and trust in his own ability.
Rice has become a regular for England since pledging his international allegiance over Ireland.
The midfielder has had a strong start to the season for West Ham and will go straight back into their starting line up away at Aston Villa. A home game against Manchester United follows.
