Gianluca Scamacca opens West Ham account in qualifying win over Viborg



West Ham United v Viborg Fodsports Forening – UEFA Europa Conference League – Playoff – First Leg – London Stadium

Gianluca Scamacca scored his first West Ham goal as the Hammers began their final European campaign with a 3-1 win over Danish club Viborg.

Italian striker Scamacca, David Moyes’ star summer signing from Sassuolo, netted a first-half header on his full debut.

Jarrod Bowen added a second after the break and although Viborg pulled one back, Michail Antonio completed things with the third.

It gave the Hammers some breathing room ahead of the second leg of that qualifying play-off in Denmark next week as they bid to qualify for the Europa Conference League group stages.
