Dev Squad defeated by Dynamo

West Ham United's Development Squad will likely play-off for fifth place after being defeated 3-1 by host club Dynamo Moscow in their second fixture at the VTB Lev Yashin Cup in Russia.

Having been beaten 2-0 by German side Freiburg in their opening match on Thursday, Ian Hendon's side needed to win to have any chance of reaching Sunday's final, but were edged out by Dynamo.

The Russian team, who were playing their first match in the competition and were therefore fresher than their English visitors, went ahead through a goal from Solamatin midway through the first half. The lead was then doubled on 65 minutes when Otstavnovu shot past Jake Larkins.

To West Ham's credit, they did not give up the fight and pulled a goal back with eleven minutes remaining when captain Eoin Wearen was fouled and George Moncur tucked away the resultant penalty. Unfortunately, while the Hammers pushed hard for an equaliser, Dynamo broke away and clinched their victory when Zhivoglyadov scored with a minute to go.

On Saturday, the squad enjoyed a well-deserved break from match action and took a sight-seeing tour of Moscow, visiting the Kremlin and Red Square.
