Rice, who received his first senior England call-up ahead of their Euro 2020 qualifying opener against the Czech Republic on Friday, was representing Ireland at youth level at the time.

Rice was forced to apologise on Thursday for a social media post from 2015 which carried connotations of support for the IRA, stating that his "naive words were not meant to be a political opinion and do not represent who I am".

"It was really good playing for Ireland. They're ready, they can play".

"I don't know why people are questioning it so much", he said. Jadon has obviously had more big-match experience at this point and he has been with us for a bit longer, but Callum has fitted in brilliantly.
