West Ham coach happy to see kids tested by Chelsea's Pizarro

West Ham United reserves coach Kevin Keen was delighted with the way his young defenders played against Chelsea striker Claudio Pizarro in this week's 3-0 defeat.

Academy centre-backs Jordan Spence and Bondz N'Gala were given a testing time by the Peru ace and Keen told whufc.com: "It was a tough night for our back four, they worked hard but their South American centre forwards are very good athletes.

"When Pizarro kept dropping off causing problems, I think it was a good lesson for them at the back in terms of movement and strength and their all-round game, so it was good."
