Bobby Moore Cup
West Ham United v SCC Napoli
Saturday 8 August
Referee: Keith Stroud
Full time - West Ham United 0-1 SSC Napoli
93 mins - It is all over here at the Boleyn Ground. Napoli have won the Bobby Moore Cup. Plenty of reasons for optimism for Gianfranco Zola, though. West Ham played some good football, but they will need to turn all their possession into goals once the Barclays Premier League season starts.
92 mins - A smart turn from Cole again and he wins a corner. Noble to take and the ball is headed clear.
91 mins - Hamsik is replaced by Luigi Vitale, who is wearning number 87.
90 mins - Stanislas comes within a yard of forcing a penalty shoot-out. Cole and Savio combine before Parker's pass is blocked and the ball falls to Stanislas. The winger beats his man, but his low shot flies just wide of the near post with De Sanctis scrambling. We're going to have three added minutes.
88 mins - Zavon Hines is on for the last few minutes in place of Jack Collison. Can the Jamaican make a name for himself?
87 mins - Noble wins another corner, which he will take himself. Collins meets the ball powerfully, but he heads it too close to De Sanctis and the goalkeeper punches it clear.
85 mins - Close! Noble clips a free-kick to the far post where Collins rises highest and heads the ball just in front of the lunging Savio. Spector does well to keep the ball in at the back post and De Sanctis is forced to concede a corner. West Ham are getting up a head of steam here against the ten-men of Napoli.
84 mins - Blasi is sent-off for a late lunge on Ilunga. He has been on the pitch a total of 26 minutes and managed to get himself booked twice.
83 mins - West Ham will need to be less hesitant in front of goal once the Barclays Premier League season begins for real. They have got into some good positions, but the Hammers' players have either passed or taken the wrong option in front of goal.
80 mins - Matthew Upson goes off. He is replaced by Danny Gabbidon, making his first appearance at the Boleyn Ground since December 2007.
79 mins - Quagliarella has done his job and he is replaced by Austrian Erwin Hoffer.
78 mins - GOAL! Fabio Quagliarella beats Green with a quite brilliant flicked header. Maggio launched the ball from the half-way line and the Italy striker out-jumped Collins and craned his neck to send the ball looping over the goalkeeper.
77 mins - Blasi sees yellow for a late challenge on Savio. West Ham make another change. Jimenez is the man to be replace by Junior Stanislas.
75 mins - Zola stretches his thigh muscles inside the technical area. This game is crying out for some of his inventiveness. Aronica is booked for kicking the ball away.
73 mins - Napoli replace Santacroce with Aronica. Quagliarella, who has been quiet since the break, works a bit of space for himself inside the box, but his shot on the turn is weak and easily gathered by Green.
71 mins - Jimenez has been very impressive today. He has a nice first touch and is not afraid to run at defenders. He certainly looks like a player who will have the supporters on their feet this season.
66 mins - Two more changes to Napoli as Bogliacino and Denis replace Cigarini and Lavezzi. West Ham respond with a piece of superb one-touch football involving five players that ends with Savio having a shooting chance from 16 yards, but he is crowded out by Datolo.
63 mins - Faubert is replaced by Spector and Savio comes on for Kieron Dyer.
62 mins - Brilliant defending from Santacroce denies Collison. Dyer and Ilunga combined down the left before Cole took possession just outside the penalty area. He laid the ball off to Parker, who split the Napoli defence, but the Italy Under-21 defender outmuscled Collison to clear the danger. West Ham are about to introduce Savio and Jonathan Spector.
61 mins - I'm afraid the match has lost a bit of the intensity it enjoyed before the interval. We've had 16 minutes and the Napoli supporters are far more enteraining than the game they are watching at present.
58 mins - These new electronic number boards are more trouble than they are worth. The three substitutions take about two minutes to complete. Campagnaro replaces Rinaudo, Blasi is on for Pazienza and Maggio replaces the captain Grava. Contini takes over as skipper.
56 mins - Napoli are preparing to make their first change, or maybe it's going to be two. Campagnaro, Blasi and Maggio are all lined up on the touchline awaiting their introduction.
55 mins - Collison is booked for a foul on Lavezzi wide on the left.
54 mins - Parker has a great chance to give West Ham the lead. He rounds De Sanctis but is forced wide of the target and is unable to direct his shot on goal.
52 mins - Lavezzi runs across the field before feeding Datolo, whose cross is well headed out by Upson for a corner, which comes to nothing.
49 mins - West Ham win a free-kick 30 yards from goal after Rinaudo is penalised for high feet against Jimenez. It again looks like the Chilean has won the argument with Noble and will take the free-kick. No. It is instead rolled to Collins, who belts it into the Napoli fans behind the goal.
48 mins - Close from Noble. Dyer runs down the left and cuts inside before rolling the ball to Noble, but his first-time shot is just wide of the post.
46 mins - We're off and running again. Today's attendance is 21,364, meaning £42,728 has been raised for the Bobby Moore Fund through ticket sales alone.
A half-time change is in the offing for West Ham. James Collins is going to replace James Tomkins.
Stephanie Moore and Trevor Brooking are both introduced to the crowd again at half-time. The pair are both welcomed with cheers and applause before being interviewed by Jeremy Nicholas. Sir Trevor reveals that his grand-daughter slept through the entire first half. I promise you it wasn't that boring!
Half-time - West Ham United 0-0 SSC Napoli
47 mins - Close! Hamsik should have scored with a near-post header from Cigarini's corner. Instead, the Slovakian heads the ball into his own shoulder and it bounces wide.
45 mins - We're into the final minute of the first half and Santacroce is down with what looks like a left knee injury. We're going to have at least two added minutes. Santacroce is taken to the sideline. He doesn't look too happy.
43 mins - Ilunga sends Dyer clear down the left wing. The England man outpaces his marker, but loses his footing and can only stab the ball into the arms of De Sanctis. It's been an entertaining spectacle so far, even if we haven't had a goal as yet. Cigarini is booked for a foul on Collison. That's the first yellow card of the game.
41 mins - Cigarini twists and turns as he tries to beat Upson, but the defender sticks to him like glue and blocks his attempted shot. Grava crosses and Tomkins heads out for a corner, which Green gathers above his head.
39 mins - Jimenez is again heavily involved as West Ham come forward again. He finds Cole in the inside-right channel. The striker turns and clips the ball into the penalty area, but Collison is unable to control the ball on his chest and it bounces through to De Sanctis.
37 mins - Left-back Datolo strides forward and unleashes a well-struck effort from 30 yards that curls and dips. Unfortunately for him, the curl and dip took it no nearer the target.
36 mins - Cole's fine through ball sends Parker in behind the Napoli defence. Parker strikes the ball cleanly, but it soars past the angle of De Sanctis's far post and crossbar.
35 mins - Contini leaves Jimenez in a heap inside the centre circle, but the South American is quickly up on his feet.
33 mins - Hamsik clips the ball over for Quagliarella, who has worked a bit of space on the edge of the penalty area, but the striker swings his leg and can only scuff the ball through to Green.
30 mins - West Ham work another good opening through Dyer, but when the ball falls to Parker inside the penalty area, he opts to pass rather than shoot himself and the chance is lost. The Hammers are definitely on top here now. Pazienza illustrates that fact but shooting into his own fans from 25 yards. That was a bit wild.
28 mins - Hamsik again. He runs at the West Ham defence before shooting wide from 20 yards under pressure from Noble.
26 mins - Another close-call for Napoli as Dyer breaks down the left and finds Ilunga. The DR Congo man crosses into the penalty area, but Contini holds off Jimenez before clearing the ball. Seconds later, Jimenez breaks into the box again. The ball breaks to Collison, but it gets stuck under his feet and he can only stab the ball well wide of the far post.
24 mins - Quagliarella dances into the penalty area and nearly works himself a shooting chance, only for a superb challenge from Faubert to thwart him. The Frenchman's industry earns him around of applause.
22 mins - Datolo brings down Dyer just outside the penalty area. This is another chance for Jimenez to show his prowess from set pieces. His shot hits the wall and Napoli attempt to break, but the alert Mark Noble snuffs out the danger with a sliding challenge.
19 mins - Now both teams have settled into some sort of rhythm, this has turned into an entertaining game. Both sides look capable of breaking the deadlock.
17 mins - Having seen Hamsik shoot into the side-netting, West Ham threaten again through Ilunga, but his cross is just behind Jimenez. The Chilean has made a bright start himself. He is clearly an attack-minded player with an eye for a pass.
15 mins - Almost briliant from Cole. First, Faubert slipped a challenge and lofted a delicious ball over the Napoli defence. Cole ran on to it and beat both Contini and De Sanctis to the ball before turning the defender with a sublime piece of skill on the byline. Unfortunately, however, his cross was too far behind his onrushing team-mates. Encouraging signs, though.
13 mins - Rinaudo is penalised for holding back Dyer, handing the Hammers a free-kick wide on the left. Jimenez takes and bends a wicked ball into the area, where De Sanctis grabs the ball just in front of Tomkins. Napoli break quickly and Green has a little bit of trouble with Parker's backpass, only for a quick shimmy to take him past Quagliarella and clear the danger.
12 mins - Napoli's big-name players, Lavezzi, Quagliarella and Hamsik, are living up to their billing so far. Quagliarella, the Italy striker, looks particularly dangerous. He finds Lavezzi with a neat pass, but the Argentine is crowded out on the egde of the penalty area.
10 mins - Much better from West Ham. Jimenez and Parker combine to release Dyer, who crosses high towards Cole, but the England man just cannot get to the ball ahead of Rinaudo.
8 mins - Napoli look very sharp. They are buzzing around the pitch and not allowing their hosts to settle at all. Consequently, too many passes are going astray from the men in claret and blue. Collison breaks forward, but his attempted pass to Jimenez rebounds to Cole, whose cross is headed out for a corner.
6 mins - Faubert finds Cole with a neat pass, but the England forward's touch lets him down and Contini is able to clear to Quagliarella, who turns Faubert and cuts inside Tomkins, only for his shot to hit strike partner Lavezzi on the head and fly out for a goal kick.
4 mins - Hamsik breaks forward again and finds Lavezzi, who cuts inside on his left foot before shooting well over the top. Napoli are lining up in a 5-3-2 formation, with Grava and Datolo as the full-backs and Contini, Santacroce and Rinaudo in central defence. Hamsik, Pazienza and Cigarini are in midfield, with Lavezzi supporting Quagliarella. Napoli come close again, with Robert Green mis-kicking a backpass and unable to stop the ball going out for a corner. Lavezzi takes, but the ball is headed harmlessly wide of the near post.
1 min - We're off and running and Napoli make a strong start. Hamsik and Lavezzi combine before the latter sees his shot well blocked by Upson. The follow-up effort flies into the Sir Trevor Brooking Stand.
3.04pm - The two sets of players congregate around the centre circle for a minute of applause for Sir Bobby Robson. An announcement is made in Italian, and the Napoli supporters spontaneously launch into a loud and rousing round of applause. That was superb to see.
3.02pm - Reading the two squads out in no mean feat for stadium announcer Jeremy Nicholas, with a total of 45 players appearing this afternoon.
3.01pm - The introductions complete, the two sets of players shake hands before breaking towards their respective ends of the field.
3pm - Matthew Upson introduces Sir Trevor to the West Ham players. I bet being out on the pitch has brought back a few fond memories for the man who scored 102 goals in 636 games for the Hammers.
2.58pm - Guests of honour Stephanie Moore MBE and Sir Trevor Brooking are welcomed on to the pitch with a loud cheer and ovation from the home supporters. A chorus of 'One Trevor Brooking' is belted out from those sat in the Bobby Moore Stand.
2.57pm - Napoli are sporting their new grey away kit, complete with bright orange numbers.
2.56pm - Gianfranco Zola and Roberto Donadoni have got their heads together and decided that we shall have unlimited substitutions this afternoon. With 23 replacements named, fourth official David Phillips could be in for a busy afternoon. 'Bubbles' has started to play, and here come the two teams, led by captains Upson and Gianluca Grava.
2.55pm - Napoli's substitutes, who never did appear for that warm-up, take their seats in the away dugout. Kick-off is fast approaching...
2.52pm - Don't forget, you can watch the entire match live on WHUTV this afternoon. Simply follow the link above and follow the instructions.
2.50pm - Jack Collison gets a warm cheer as he comes off the pitch and heads for the home dressing room. The Wales midfielder responds by handing his Bobby Moore Fund t-shirt to a supporter.
2.45pm - Time for a bit of pre-match shooting practice for the Hammers, with Junior Stanislas looking particularly impressive in firing a shot into the top-corner. Another half-volley flies past Marek Stech from the forward. He's on fire!
2.35pm - Napoli's fans a making a proper racket in the lower tier of the soon-to-be Sir Trevor Brooking Stand. They have brought 1,200 supporters with them from the south of Italy - no mean feat for a pre-season friendly. They appear to be determined to make themselves heard and are running through a repertoire of songs and elaborate clapping routines. Very impressive it all is, too.
2.30pm - While West Ham's entire squad are being put through their paces by fitness coach Antonio Pintus, Napoli's substitutes are not out on the pitch at all. Four of them are watching the starting XI warm up, but aside from the replacement goalkeepers, the remainder of their contingent are nowhere to be seen. Maybe they'll be out a bit closer to kick-off?
2.25pm - West Ham United's players take to the pitch for their pre-match warm-up, led by Matthew Upson. To a man, the squad are all wearing bright red t-shirts in honour of the Bobby Moore Fund for Cancer Research UK.
