West Ham United suffered a 1-0 defeat by Braga in the Premier League club's penultimate pre-season friendly.

West Ham United suffered a 1-0 defeat by Braga in the Premier League club's penultimate pre-season friendly.

Midfielder Rafa scored the only goal of the game in the 63rd minute to upset Sam Allardyce's side in the Guadiana Tournament in the Algarve.

Following Monday's win against Sporting, West Ham could have won the three-team tournament but it was not to be for the Londoners on their second game in as many days.

West Ham could not find their best form and it possibly showed that they were resting regulars such as Jussi Jaaskelainen, Winston Reid, Matt Jarvis, Joe Cole and Mark Noble as substitutes.
