Captain Rice

Declan Rice spoke to the press ahead of leading out the Three Lions tonight against Belgium, he said: “On my 50th cap, to walk out at Wembley in front of my family and friends, it is a great honour – I’m a bit speechless.

“It is a pinch-me moment, it will be an honour. I was absolutely lost for words when [Gareth Southgate] said to me I was going to be captain.”

Good evening and welcome to SunSport’s live blog of England vs Belgium!

Gareth Southgate will be hoping for a much-improved performance from his side following the Three Lions’ lacklustre performance against Brazil on Saturday.

Teenage sensation Endrick was the difference-maker at Wembley on the weekend after his 80th-minute strike was enough to separate the two sides.

Captain and star striker Harry Kane will miss out for England yet again after he was sent back to Bayern Munich to recover from an ankle injury.

Brentford star Ivan Toney is set to make his first start up top for the Three Lions, while Man Utd teenager Kobbie Mainoo is likely to take up a spot in Southgate’s midfield three.

Arsenal star Declan Rice will wear the captain’s armband against Belgium tonight as he leads out England for the first time in his career.
