West Ham midfielder Song: Downing showing how good he is

West Ham United midfielder Alex Song hailed goalscorer Stewart Downing after their 1-1 draw against Sunderland.

Downing's equaliser was his third goal of the season and a further example of his worth to the team, according to Song.

He explained to whufc.com: "I think Stewart is a very good player. He's shown a lot of things and I'm very happy for him because he is a good guy as well.

"In football sometimes you might try to do something, and if it doesn't work you have to keep focused on what you're doing and improve yourself in training, and then you see it on the pitch.

"I'm very happy for him and when he plays like this, good things can happen for him. He's been back in the national team, and we have to help him do his job very well.

"We've seen what's happened for him and it's a pleasure to play with him because he is a very good player."
