West Ham United fans have been going nuts on Twitter after Declan Rice confirmed his intention to represent England at an international level.

“I would also like to make it clear that, in requesting to transfer my national team representation, I am not taking for granted a call-up to the England squad.” Rice may not be taking it for granted, but a lot of West Ham fans have been going crazy with joy at his decision…

The defensive midfielder, who emerged out of the Hammers’ youth ranks and instantly excelled, confirmed his international allegiance on Wednesday afternoon in an open statement on his Twitter page.

However, I am just as proud of my family’s Irish heritage.” His Irish heritage allowed Rice to work his way towards the senior national side under Martin O’Neill and earn three caps with the Republic of Ireland after representing the country at multiple youth levels.

Rice added in his statement: “I fully accept that some Irish supporters will be disappointed by my decision.

In the post, Rice noted: “Like so many people around the world, I consider myself to be of mixed nationality.
