Arsenal midfielder Declan Rice has had more challenging times winning his battles in midfield than this supremely cool dispossessing of Chelsea’s Mykhaylo Mudryk in yesterday’s game between England and Ukraine.

Mudryk has been hugely disappointing since his big move to Chelsea in January, with the talented young Ukraine international initially looking like a player with the world at his feet.
