Sky pundit says Declan Rice has to do more to stop England being exposed

Sky Sports pundit Danny Higginbotham thought England were left exposed at times against Bulgaria on Saturday and called on Declan Rice to do more to stop England being exposed

He said: “One area they still need to improve on is that balance at the back, especially against teams who sit back very deep. Providing cover once Harry Maguire or any [other defender] goes on a run, which is when they are at their most vulnerable.

Declan Rice – who was previously a centre back so should come as second nature – needs to drop and fill the gaps. Against Bulgaria at Wembley, they got caught on the counter a few times because they were not filling in for their adventurous defenders.

“That’s what they need to look out for against Kosovo. Going forward England are such a threat but they just have to tighten up.”
