Reporter Joo Dae-eun = Declan Rice talked about scoring against Chelsea.
On the 22nd (Korean time), Arsenal told Rice’s story through its official website. Rice recalled the goal against Chelsea and said, “David Beckham was my inspiration.”
Arsenal met Chelsea in the 9th round of the 2023/24 Premier League season held at Stamford Bridge in London, England on the 22nd (Korean time) and drew 2-2.
Rice, who played as a starter that day, intercepted the opponent’s goalkeeper’s pass in the 32nd minute of the second half, took advantage of the gap in the goal, and immediately shot. Although it was fired from about 30 meters away from the goal, the shot went straight into Chelsea’s net.
While playing full-time, Rice recorded a pass success rate of 88% (46/52), created one opportunity, touched the ball 63 times, and passed 7 passes in the offensive zone. Soccer statistics company ‘FootMob’ gave Rice a rating of 8. He was the highest scorer on the team.
British media ‘Football London’ rated Rice 7 and said, “He is in a big game again. Rice was one of the few players to advance into the box during the first half. “He showed a great finish after Robert Sanchez’s mistake.”
Rice spoke about the goal through the club after the game. He said: “Everyone was talking about the Beckham documentary. I watched it for the first time last night. In the middle of the documentary, the long-distance goal he scored against Wimbledon is shown. “I got a lot of inspiration from there,” he said.
He continued, “Players have to make decisions quickly. I have to think about whether he should pass the ball or whether I should score the goal myself. I watched the goal again and it seemed like a great finish. “I am satisfied,” he said.
Rice moved from West Ham to Arsenal ahead of this season. As soon as he joined the new team, he became a starting player. He won the Community Shield against Manchester City, the first game of the season, and lifted the trophy. Rice has two goals in 12 appearances in all competitions.토스카지노 도메인
