One such run almost ended in a memorable West Ham goal at Leicester, where Rice ran 50 yards before thumping a shot against the underside of the crossbar, while another driving run down the left flank during England's win over Belgium almost led a goal for Marcus Rashford.
“I think it's happened a couple of times at West Ham where I've intercepted the ball and obviously the space is in front of me to go and I believe in my ability to go," he recalled. "For England, I saw the space and I've seen Marcus on the inside and I thought 'Do you know what, keep going, there's no point turning back' and Marcus had a great shot out of it and was unlucky not to score.
“It's definitely something I've been trying to add to my game, breaking forward. Definitely."
