There are several phrases that are difficult for me to undrestand in this text football commentary. Could you explain the meaning of "come to the party", "charging", and "steamrollering?"

30 mins: Smalling on the rampage
This is a pulsating game of football, and Chris Smalling has come to the party, charging out of defence, running with the ball, steamrollering Jack Cork and getting on with the game

To come to the party means to finally arrive in the game - they have started to play well. In this example, Smalling has done something positive and afected the game so we can say that he has turned up. If a team does not turn up (to the party) then they didn't play very well.

steamrolling an opponent means to push players out of the way in a very physical manner
