Declan Rice Scores His First Goal For West Ham

Schrodinger's international Declan Rice has scored his first professional goal for West Ham, putting his side in front against Arsenal with a cultured finish from inside the box.

The 19-year-old midfielder was having his usual quietly effective game, putting out fires in the Hammers' midfield, when he popped up in Arsenal's box on 48 minutes to sweep in the opener after being teed up by former Gunners star Samir Nasri:

In a recent interview with the Evening Standard Rice has promised that a decision on his international future is imminent:

With regard to my international future, myself, my dad and my brother [Connor] have talked with Ireland coach Mick McCarthy and I’ve also spoken to Gareth Southgate. They’ve both said that whenever I’m ready, it’s up to me to make a decision. There was so much going on earlier in the season but now most of that has been sorted, so I will make a decision soon.
