Ljungberg delighted to grab West Ham goal

Freddie Ljungberg was delighted to grab his first goal for West Ham in yesterday's 1-1 draw with Birmingham City.

"It was a great start to the game," he told whufc.com. "It was nice to score a goal but it is disappointing we didn't win.

"In the first half we played really good football and maybe we could have scored some more goals. We did some good sharp passing, and even in the second half we created some chances and could have scored."

Despite the disappointment of failing to secure a fourth straight league win at the Boleyn Ground, Ljungberg is more than content with his own form.

"Personally I have felt great the last one or two months. It helps to be injury free and that you can train." With no game until Fulham away in a fortnight, the squad will have the chance to rest but Ljungberg's hunger to keep on going is such that "I would like to play again tomorrow".
