Declan Rice has absolutely raved about one of his West Ham teammates after our Europa Conference League semi-final win over AZ Alkmaar.
Pablo Fornals scoring the West Ham winner was a truly memorable moment for every single person involved with our great club.
Now it’s next stop Prague for the Hammers, and after the Spaniard’s goal last night he will surely be pushing for a starting spot…
Declan Rice blown away by one West Ham player vs AZ Alkmaar
Pablo Fornals sent the travelling Hammers fans delirious when he scored deep into injury time to confirm our place in the Conference League final next month.
And Dec responded when Joe Cole suggested on BT Sport that the winning goal could not have been scored by a better person:
“With Pablo, it’s been emotional for him because obviously he’s not played as much as he’s wanted to this season, but every time he’s come on he’s given everything for the badge and the shirt. To score that goal and send West Ham to a final, he’s names going to be written in history forever. I’m so happy for him.”
Fornals absolutely deserved that moment last night. He has struggled for game-time over the past six months or so, but he’s been nothing but a complete professional during that period.
The Spaniard always gives absolutely everything when he puts the Hammers shirt on, and his passion and love for the club shines through.
Declan Rice was clearly a big fan of Fornals’ cameo appearance for West Ham against AZ Alkmaar at the AFAS Stadium last night.
It was just so great to see someone who gives absolutely everything for the club get his just rewards.
