West Ham United kicked-off their preseason schedule with a 3-2 win at Austrian Bundesliga club SCR Altach on Thursday evening.

The Hammers completed their ten-day stay in Central Europe by travelling over the border from their training camp in the Swiss spa town of Bad Ragaz to the Stadion Schnabelholz, where Carlos Sanchez, Michail Antonio and Issa Diop scored the Irons' goals in an entertaining game.

Manuel Pellegrini's squad flew back to London after the game before preparing to head for the Premier League Asia Trophy in China at the weekend.
