West Ham defender Craig Dawson: We silenced Lyon fans

West Ham defender Craig Dawson says they produced a perfect performance for their Europa League win at Lyon.

The east Londoners recorded a magnificent 3-0 victory to secure a 4-1 aggregate success, with Dawson central to the success – at both ends of the pitch.

“It went perfectly to plan and it was a great team performance," the goalscorer later said.

“Getting the goal settled the lads' nerves and credit to them, they put in a great shift and it's an unbelievable result.

“It was obviously important to quieten the crowd and it made it a great start to the game for us.

“It was great to keep the clean sheet. Credit to the boys who came in. It's a fantastic night and I'm so pleased for the lads.

“It's absolutely massive for us. The lads have worked ever so hard to get to this stage, so exciting times ahead and credit to the boys.“
