West Ham cruise past Viborg and into ECL group stage
West Ham rediscovered their goalscoring touch as they booked another European tour with a 3-0 win over Danish side Viborg.
The Hammers, without a point or a goal after three matches in the Premier League, ran out comfortable 6-1 winners on aggregate over the two legs of their qualifying play-off to reach the group stages of the Europa Conference League.
Italy striker Gianluca Scamacca, the £30m signing from Sassuolo, opened the scoring midway through the first half with his second goal in two European appearances.
Said Benrahma and Tomas Soucek also found the net after the break to put the seal on an ultimately comfortable evening in front of 1,000 noisy travelling fans in Denmark.
