Declan Rice’s recent revelation about not being a lover of beer like every other footballer has surprised England fans, Sport Bible.
The Three Lions are on their quest for a first European title at Euro 2020 and the 22-year-old is part of Gareth Southgate’s 26-man squad.
The Chelsea academy product produced a five-star performance in the friendlies against Austria and Romania and will be given the thumbs-up by Southgate to start against Croatia.
The West Ham star has now revealed he will be gulping a pint of beer if England go all the way to win the tournament.
“Do you know what, until this day I have never had a beer and I am 22. That is the truth!” he admitted this week ahead of Sunday’s opener.
“Never had a pint. Don’t drink it. I’m not really (a drinker). But a pint? No. I know it is off topic but I have never had a beer. People get surprised. I just don’t like the smell of it so I have never gone near it.”
Fans were shocked with Rice’s confession about having not tasted beer including talkSPORT presenter Alan Brazil:
“Away you go – he’s a liar,”
“Are you telling me they don’t have a bevvie? I know some of them don’t but I know a lot of them love a pint!
“I’m not meaning any names, but I’ve seen them at Cheltenham having a couple of pints… and there’s nothing wrong with that!”
