West Ham swept into the Europa League semi-finals after beating Lyon 3-0 in their quarter-final second leg
West Ham cleared into the Europa League semi-finals in the wake of beating Lyon 3-0 in their quarter-last second leg, winning 4-1 on total to set up a bind with Eintracht Frankfurt, who beat Barcelona.
The Hammers needed to ride the flood of early strain from Lyon – siphoned up by an unruly home group – however when David Moyes’ side observed the net, they won’t ever think back.
Every one of the objectives arrived in a 11-minute time frame either side of the break. A plain Craig Dawson (38) gestured West Ham ahead, sending Pablo Fornals’ corner through a crawl of room at the close to post.
After six minutes and West Ham commander Declan Rice (44) added the second. Ben Johnson’s left-wing cross was made into his way, with the midfielder having a lot of opportunity to control the ball prior to striking from the highest point of the area. It took a diversion on the way through, however Lyon’s guard was found needing once more.
Three minutes after the break, West Ham added their third and got their position in the Europa League’s last four. A thrilling pass from Fornals sent Jarrod Bowen through, with few protectors close to him once more. It was then a fine completion past Julian Pollersbeck as his extraordinary season for the Hammers proceeds.
