On This Day: Chicharito goal secures pre-season win over Angers


With the season having only recently concluded, it seems strange to say... but on this day in 2018, West Ham United beat Angers SCO in their final pre-season friendly!

The Hammers rounded off a productive preparatory fixture list - which had also encompassed wins over Wycombe Wanderers, Aston Villa, Ipswich Town and Mainz 05 (the latter on penalties) - with this hard-fought 1-0 win at Das.Goldberg-Stadion, Austria.

Javier 'Chicharito' Hernandez got the winner against our French opposition, scoring on his return to Claret and Blue after helping Mexico to the FIFA World Cup Round of 16.
