West Ham defender Winston Reid welcomed their performance for victory over Karlsruher SC.
The Hammers were comfortable 3-0 winners.
“It was a really good performance on Saturday," Reid told whufc.com. “We knew we needed and we wanted to win a game, so it was nice to get one under our belts.
“It was a competitive match and a match we needed going into Europe this week. Conditions were really hot, so it was a good test for everyone.
“We made good use of the ball and when we didn't have it we tried to save our energy and wait for the moments when we could press the opposition.
“All in all, we scored three good goals and it was a good match."
