West Ham United midfielder Joe Cole was pleased for Modibo Maiga after his double in Saturday's 3-0 win at Braunschweig.

Maiga is impressing Hammers management in preseason.

"It was great to see Modibo score two goals on Saturday and it is always important for your strikers to be scoring goals," Cole told whufc.com.

"You get excited every year at this stage and everyone wants to do well."
