West Ham captain Declan Rice scored his first goal of the season in the 4-0 win over Nottingham Forest on Saturday.
The Hammers talisman took to Instagram after the match to celebrate, and there were plenty of notable faces in his replies. While ex-Chelsea star John Terry applauded, former teammate Jack Wilshere simply said “finally” to suggest that Rice should be scoring more often:

Rice’s superb strike against Forest shows that he does have the ability to strike the ball, so it is a surprise that he doesn’t hit the back of the net more often. Last season, the midfielder only managed to score once in the league as well.
Of course, it doesn’t detract from the fact that he is a brilliant all-round footballer, and he will surely be the subject of plenty of interest from the likes of Chelsea, Arsenal and Manchester United at the end of the season.
