West Ham United coach Ian Hendon was happy to see their January signings impress in their friendly against Southend United.
Italian duo Antonio Nocerino and Marco Boriello both played 77 minutes, while Abdul Razak lasted the full 90, pleasing Hendon and his fellow coaches.
Hendon told West Ham TV: "It was a very worthwhile game. The two Italian lads who've come in have been a bit short on games and minutes so it was nice to get them a good bit of time on the pitch and get them used to the other lads.
"The Italians are technically very good and I think we saw that a little bit in today's game. Abdul Razak played, albeit out of position at right-back, but he fitted in well and looked very comfortable.
"It was a good run-out and the manager was there to cast his eye over them for the weeks ahead."
