West Ham captain Rice: England should be feared

England's quality means they should be feared by other nations at the World Cup, says West Ham captain Declan Rice.

The Three Lions are through to the last 16 in Qatar and face Senegal on Sunday for a place in the quarter-finals.

Rice believes England's "world-class talent" and the squad's trophy-winning experience with their clubs combine to make them formidable opposition.

"Other nations will look at our quality - and why should we not be feared?" said the midfielder.

"If you look at our attacking talent, we have world-class talent. Across the board we have players who have won the biggest trophies.

"It is up to us to prove that. The likes of France have done that. We're not just here to get into the last 16, we want to go the whole way."
