West Ham United 1-0 SK Rapid Wien

(29′ mins): West Ham was enjoying plenty of the ball – the Austrians content to sit tight in numbers and frustrate. Craig Dawson became the second Hammers man to strike the woodwork – his header cannoning to safety following a deep Cresswell flag-kick. But just before the half-hour mark, the home side moved ahead. Rice arrived completely unmarked to meet Michail Antonio’s centre. Undeniably, the goals had been coming – the visitors now forced to rethink their game plan.
