Grealish hails Rice after West Ham star scores solo goal in Europe

Jack Grealish hailed Declan Rice on social media after the West Ham midfielder scored a wondergoal in the Europa League, claiming the Hammers star should have a higher FIFA 22 pace rating. 

Rice netted a wonderful solo effort in the east London club’s 2-0 victory away at Dinamo Zagreb on Thursday night, winning the ball near the half-way line before carrying the ball into the penalty area and scoring between the goalkeepers’ legs.

The goal earned the Hammers a victory in their first ever Europa League group stage match, with the strike earning plaudits from across the continent, including England team-mate Grealish that he merits more than his 66 rating for pace in the upcoming FIFA 22 game.

The Manchester City and England midfielder tweeted on Thursday: ‘I told you @_DeclanRice you should be higher than 66 pace on @EASPORTSFIFA.’

Rice had previously complained about his speed rating on FIFA in a video with Grealish while on international duty with England earlier this month. 

After seeing Rice’s FIFA 22 card for the video game, released on September 26, Grealish told Rice on the official England media channel: ‘You know what’s just mad though: your pace, man.’

‘I’m not slow,’ Rice replied. ‘That is the thing. Mate I’m just convinced that they (the game creators) just sit at their computer and they’re just bored, writing a thousand players down. He’s just 60-something, he’s 70-something. Done.’

Grealish, meanwhile, was given an 80 rating for speed, scoring 84 overall, slightly higher than Rice who is rated 82.

Like Rice, Grealish also netted in European action this week, scoring a wonderful curling effort in Manchester City’s 6-3 Champions League group stage victory over Dinamo Zagreb.

It marked a wonderful first ever Champions League game for Grealish, who added an assist to his goal contributions tally for the match in his first European game following his £100million move from Manchester City. 

Rice and Grealish formed an integral part of Gareth Southgate’s England midfield and starred for the Three Lions at Euro 2020 this summer. 

The pair are also close off the pitch and both went to Mykonos on holiday after the summer tournament.
