The English national team is currently on the right path to qualify for the 2022 World Cup. England holds the first-place position in their respective group table. England is up next against Albania and San Marino. Although England should walk through these games, a lack of effort could see them drop points in their group. As a result, England can risk their chances of playing in Qatar.

Declan Rice is an asset to England

West Ham player Declan Rice is on exceptional form at the club level. Declan Rice has contributed one goal and three assists as a holding midfielder in the Premier League. As a result, his performances have yielded West Ham seven wins in 11 matches. Along with this, West Ham has just beaten Liverpool 3-2 and is now third in the Premier League table.

England is one of the favorites to win the World Cup in Qatar. After an incredible run during Euro 2020, England missed out on silverware finishing second in the European tournament. Declan Rice played all seven matches during this tournament. It is safe to say that Declan Rice is a crucial part of the national soccer team, and his absence can cause problems for the English squad.
