Diame delights in winning strike

It was a goal worthy of the prize.

West Ham United midfielder Mohamed Diame collected one of his three gongs at the Hammers' Player Awards for his stunning strike against Manchester United in the 2-2 Boleyn Ground draw in the Barclays Premier League.

His goal was voted by supporters as their Goal of the Season, and it was certainly one that will live long in the memory.

Receiving possession from Guy Demel on the right flank, Diame lost the attentions of Wayne Rooney with a deft drop of the shoulder before taking aim with his left foot and arcing a perfect shot beyond David de Gea.

Diame was only too happy to relive the goal - his third of the season - for West Ham TV.

"It was a very great honour for me to win this prize," he said. "When you work hard all season and receive a trophy, you are happy.

"I linked up with Guy Demel and Ricardo Vaz Te on the right hand side of our attack. When I received the ball from Guy, I saw the Manchester United player on my back, but took him away with my first touch and then I struck with my left foot. I was happy for the team that it went in.

"Of course it makes it even more special when it's against Manchester United. When you play against the big teams you always want to do well, and I'll remember that night all of my life."
