West Ham attacker Jarrod Bowen on Lyon triumph: I was in non-leagues 8 years ago

West Ham attacker Jarrod Bowen says their Europa League quarterfinal win at Lyon was the best night of his life.

The forward capped a sensational evening in France with another outstanding goal – his 15th of a phenomenal season – to complete a 3-0 victory that sent the Hammers soaring into the Club's first major European semi-final in 46 years.

Bowen said, “It's just getting better and better. I wouldn't have dreamt it eight years ago or whatever it was [when I was playing non-league football]. It's just madness. My old man was here and it's just one hell of a journey.

“Ah, it's the best night of my life, for sure! Like I said before about missing the Sevilla game, when I was there but I wasn't there if that makes sense, to do it again tonight away from home, seeing the fans, seeing the way we got their crowd rocked, it was unbelievable.

“We knew the way they defended and we knew they left a lot of space and I was there. It was on my right foot and credit to the coaches and everyone who puts the work in because there are a lot of people who think it's easy, but on your weaker foot it's hard, but I knew when I struck it, it was in the back of the net."
