While England’s victorious footballers were likely celebrating another job they’d done in their 2-0 World Cup qualifier against Albania, it wasn’t all a smile for one of their teammates.
Declan Rice has become the unwitting star of a good night for Gareth Southgate’s men after footage went viral showing him being ignored while high-five from his teammates celebrating Harry Kane’s opening goal.
A clip shows a huddle shape around Kane, exchanging high-fives with different players before Rice arrives.

Rice came to celebrate with Harry Kane after his goal, but got no response to his raised hand
But when the West Ham star offers his own hand, the group, unconsciously and hilariously, moves away from him – leaving Rice helpless, waiting for a high-five that never comes.
Social media lighted up on the comic clip, with Rice’s childhood friend and English colleague Mason Mount leading the taunts online by posting stills from the clip on his Instagram feed.
The Chelsea playmaker boldly said ‘some say Declan Rice is still waiting’ in regards to the high-five.
Mason Mount posted the clip to Instagram, as well as a video of Rice on the plane home
Rice showed his own sense of humor and allowed Mount to film him on the plane back from Albania, mocking his newfound fame, before bursting out laughing.
Rice also tweeted about the clip, saying, ‘I’m waiting for the … Hello darkness, my old friend meme is coming,’ with a laughing emoji.
However, all is not lost for Rice, as English captain Kane has also seen the clip and vowed to include the West Ham youngster next time.
“Sorry, buddy should have checked my shoulder,” Kane wrote, followed by a laughing emoji.
