Rice scored for West Ham in a tense Europa League match in Zagreb, while Grealish scored for Man City in their 2021/22 Champions League opening against RB Leipzig earlier in the week.
Both goals were well-deserved, with Grealish going on a mazy run before shooting home, and Rice rampaging forward and surpassing the home defense.
That inspired the former Aston Villa player to make a witty Twitter remark.

Declan Rice and Jack Grealish both played key roles in helping England reach the Euro 2020 final.
Manchester City announced on August 5, 2021, that they had signed Grealish to a six-year contract that will last until 2027. Several publications stated that Aston Villa received a £100 million transfer price, making it the most expensive sale of an English player and the biggest sum ever paid by a British team.
On the other hand, Rice signed his first professional contract with West Ham United on December 16, 2015, little over a year after joining the club as a young player.
