Scamacca scores first goal as West Ham secure advantage over Viborg

Gianluca Scamacca scored his first West Ham goal as they beat Danish side Viborg in their Europa Conference League play-off first leg.

The Hammers have one foot in the group stage after securing a 3-1 win at London Stadium.

Scamacca, signed for £30.5m signing from Sassuolo, was handed his first start and opened his account after just 24 minutes.

The towering Italian headed in following neat play on the left from fellow new arrival Maxwel Cornet.

Jarrod Bowen zipped a second into the bottom corner from distance with 26 minutes to go.

Jakob Bonde's header brought Viborg back in the game, however Michail Antonio restored the two-goal advantage after linking up with Said Benrahma.
