Declan Rice clashes with Slovakia boss after he shoves the England player – Mirror Online

Declan Rice engaged in a furious bust-up with the Slovakia boss after England’s dramatic Euro 2024 last-16 win. Bellingham’s shot was England’s first on target in another dismal performance from the Three Lions. From there, England defended their lead and secured passage through to the quarter-finals, where they will meet Switzerland.

At full-time, tempers and emotions seemed to flare on the pitch as Slovakia head coach Francesco Calzona stormed over to the officials to have a word. The Slovakia head coach looked to be upset about a potential foul that went uncalled late in extra-time. England dragged their way to Sunday’s knockout clash with Francesco Calzona’s side and risked being dragged out of the summer’s tournament after another unconvincing display in Germany.

Slovakia could have put the game to bed shortly after the restart after an inexplicable error in England’s backline, but Calzona’s side failed to capitalise. England would prove to be fortunate for the profligacy, as the door was left open with 85 seconds remaining for Bellingham to save Southgate’s England. Even so, Bellingham was England’s salvation in their opening group stage match against Serbia at the Arena AufSchalke in Gelsenkirchen and once more on Sunday.

Bellingham’s heroics will only paper over the cracks of another concerning performance. Southgate’s name was booed before kick-off by a select group of fans as his name was read over the PA, while the team were also booed as they made their way back into the dressing room at half-time. *Join our new WhatsApp community* *and receive your daily dose of Mirror Football content.
