West Ham striker Scamacca looking forward to face Udinese

West Ham striker Gianluca Scamacca is looking forward to facing Udinese in today's friendly.

The centre-forward played against the Little Zebras four times over the previous two seasons, twice with Genoa and twice with Sassuolo, and scored in the latter's 1-1 Serie A draw with the Friulians in May this year.

"It's good to play in Italy again and against a good team in Udinese which is playing well, so it should be a very good match," said Scamacca, who has netted six times in 21 appearances since joining the Irons from Sassuolo in July.

“I think Udinese is one of the teams in Italy which play with a high intensity, like in the Premier League, so it will be a good test for us.

“I've played in this stadium before and it's new and big, but I have not scored there before, so I hope to score there on Saturday!"
