West Ham United 3-1 Viborg: Gianluca Scamacca Scores First Hammers Goal | Watch Highlights
Gianluca Scamacca scored his first West Ham goal as they beat Danish side Viborg in their Europa Conference League play-off first leg at London Stadium.
As reported by BBC, the Italian forward, a £30.5m signing from Sassuolo, was handed his first start and took just 24 minutes to make an impact when he headed in following neat play on the left from fellow new arrival Maxwel Cornet.
It set the hosts on their way to a welcome first victory this season, having lost their opening two Premier League games without scoring a goal.
Jarrod Bowen zipped a second into the bottom corner from distance with 26 minutes to go but the visitors hit back immediately through Jakob Bonde’s header.
That threatened to make life uncomfortable for the Hammers until substitutes Said Benrahma and Michail Antonio combined for the latter to tap into an empty net and secure a healthy advantage going into the second leg.
That game will take place in Viborg next Thursday, with the winners joining the group stage of the competition when it begins on 8 September.
