Goals: West Ham United 2-0 Rapid Vienna


Goals from Declan Rice and Saïd Benrahma gave West Ham United a 2-0 victory over Rapid Vienna in their home UEFA Europa League Group H opener on Thursday night.

The Hammers extended their perfect start to life in Europe with the victory, building on their win in Zagreb with a second straight 2-0 success, with Rice on target in both matches.

It was Rice who opened the scoring in front of over 50,000 Hammers at London Stadium, touching home from close range after being teed up by Michail Antonio.

Rapid asked more questions of the hosts, who had been comfortable in their lead, after the interval and saw VAR intervene to rule out a penalty award 20 minutes from time, before Benrahma wrapped up the points in injury time.

Next up for the Hammers is a home meeting with Genk on 21 October.
