"It was so, so special today," said Rice. "This club, the stadium, the fans, the players, we deserve these big European nights. We stepped up tonight. We knew with our fans and the quality we had on the pitch tonight we could do it. Probably the best night I've had at West Ham. I'll take anyone. There's no one to fear.
"Sevilla were probably the favourites. When the draw happened people thought we'd get knocked out, and we've knocked them out. We've worked hard for this. Relegation battles, from when Moyes come in. Still up there in the Premier League and now into the quarter-finals, so there's a big buzz around the place."
