DECLAN RICE and his girlfriend Lauren Fryer were pictured hanging out with Rock 'N' Roll legend Liam Gallagher at Reading Festival on Sunday night.
But the midfield sensation will probably have swerved Cigarettes & Alcohol as he linked up with England just two days later.
The childhood sweethearts took in the rock icon's headline set at the Berkshire festival.
Gallagher, 48, belted out plenty of Oasis classics as well as some of his super popular solo tracks.
He of course had a dig at his brother Noel telling the crowd: "The little fella's still sulking somewhere.
"But the tunes are still f***ing cool and they've got to be done so I'll need your help with the choruses."
Fryer uploaded the shot of the trio posing together backstage as well as her and Rice's view from the VIP area.
They were treated to renditions of Morning Glory, Supersonic, Fade Away, Roll With It and Live Forever – which Gallagher dedicated to Rolling Stones drummer Charlie Watts.

Although West Ham ace Rice was only born in 1999 so missed Liam and Oasis in their pomp, he still appeared to have enjoyed himself.
Fryer captioned the post: "Because one photo just wasn’t enough. @liamgallagher."
And Rice replied alongside a love heart emoji: "What a night."
Rice and Fryer are childhood sweethearts, having first met at school.
And his best friend – Chelsea star Mason Mount – previously joked to SunSport that Fryer is jealous of his and Rice's bromance.
In a 2019 interview with SunSport, the pair were asked: "What do your girlfriends think of this?"
'MY MISSUS IS WORRIED'
DR: My missus is quite worried. I’m genuinely being serious. She’s quite worried.
MM: What was it she was saying when we were away on internationals? Sharing a room together.
DR: Oh she’s just always: ‘You two . . . you love him more than you love me’. Honestly. We just get it in the neck all the time. But they need to understand the friendship."
Fryer is relatively unknown and keeps her private life to herself.
But she regularly posts pictures of her and her beau on her Instagram page.

They were pictured on holiday this summer after Rice's Euro 2020 heroics.
Fryer was present for most of Rice's England appearances, and even uploaded a picture of herself with England flags painted on her cheeks.
After arriving at St George's Park on Tuesday, Rice presented midfield partner Kalvin Phillips with England's player of the year award for 2020-21.
