On This Day: West Ham come from behind to complete Leicester victory

 

Taking a look back at a classic West Ham United moment on this day in history, in association with RoadX Tyres...

West Ham United came from a goal down to score a 2-1 Premier League win over Leicester City on this day in 1999.

Emile Heskey poked the Foxes in front at the Boleyn Ground with a dinked finish over on-rushing goalkeeper Shaka Hislop.

It was 1-1 on 28 minutes, though, as Paulo Wanchope latched onto Frank Lampard's miss-hit shot to fire past Tim Flowers.

And Paolo Di Canio completed the turnaround in the second half when he controlled inside the Leicester penalty area before slamming a shot into the top right-hand corner.

Harry Redknapp's West Ham would end the 1999/00 season in ninth place on 55 points.

You can enjoy the goals from this sun-soaked win over Martin O'Neill's Leicester again right here!
