Following West Ham’s successful advancement to the Europa Conference League final, Declan Rice has taken to social media to express his message to the club’s fans, writes the WHZ.
The Hammers secured a 1-0 victory against AZ Alkmaar in the second leg of the semi-finals, resulting in a 3-1 aggregate win. Their upcoming final will be against Serie A side Fiorentina next month, who secured a 4-3 aggregate victory over Basel. Rice, the captain of West Ham, played the entire 90 minutes in the Netherlands, and Pablo Fornals scored the decisive goal in the 94th minute. Sharing his joy on Instagram, Rice addressed West Ham supporters by saying, “Prague here we come, baby.”
Despite not delivering a standout performance, David Moyes and his team had a singular objective before the match: to secure a spot in the final using any means necessary. Fornals’ remarkable late goal accomplished exactly that, igniting a euphoric response from the passionate West Ham supporters in attendance. This unforgettable night will be etched in the memories of both fans and players.
However, there is another monumental evening on the horizon as they face the daunting challenge of Fiorentina in Prague next month. In the meantime, both clubs will need to focus on their domestic campaigns, but a significant portion of their attention will undoubtedly shift towards meticulous preparations for the impending final.
