Silkeborg 2-3 West Ham: Nervy Hammers come from behind to win Europa Conference League clash

Kasper Kusk and Soren Tengstendt scored for West Ham in their Europa Conference League victory over Silkeborg. 

Gianluca Scamacca’s stunner helped West Ham beat Silkeborg 3-2 in the Europa Conference League.

Scamacca’s thumping goal, Manuel Lanzini’s penalty, and Craig Dawson’s header helped West Ham avoid an upset on an artificial pitch at JYSK Park.

Silkeborg 2-3 West Ham: Nervy Hammers come from behind to win Europa Conference League clash

Kasper Kusk gave Silkeborg the lead in the fifth minute, but Manuel Lanzini equalized eight minutes later after Maxwell Cornet was fouled.

Scamacca, who scored twice in qualifying against Viborg, put West Ham ahead in the 25th minute before a Nicklas Helenius goal was ruled out for a dubious foul on West Ham goalkeeper Alphonse Areola.

Aaron Cresswell and Dawson, both back from injury, scored the game-winning goals 13 minutes later.

In the second half, David Moyes put on Jarrod Bowen, but he made a mistake that let Silkeborg make a big run before Soren Tengstedt scored in the 75th minute.

Silkeborg’s wait for their first group stage point was extended when Areola made a fine save to deny substitute Tonni Adamsen a memorable equalizer.

Moyes: It should have been comfortable

David Moyes said, “There were parts I liked and parts I didn’t.”

They’re stylish. We knew. We stopped it for long periods. The other parts were great.

3-1 should’ve been comfortable. We had four or five chances. They always make scoring nerve-wracking.

“We made bad choices. We missed opportunities to score, which irks me. Set goals.

Analysis: Sloppy Hammers will concern Moyes

Coming from behind to win shows character and determination, but David Moyes won’t want to get used to it.

His side was in cruise control for much of Denmark, but concentration lapses and questionable defending made it difficult.

The artificial surface at JYSK Park may have played a role, but the Hammers need to get better at defense if they want to repeat their success from last season.

Another Europa League comeback victory after last week’s win over FCSB shows they can dig in when not at their best.

“We did the job and got it done. Winning comfortably in Europe isn’t easy,” Moyes said.

Craig Dawson: “The performance wasn’t great, but we won.”

Any victory deserves celebration. Europe is 2-0. Four straight qualifiers. With only four points after six Premier League games, Moyes knows they need to improve—starting on Sunday against his former club Everton.

England World Cup squad watch

Declan Rice and Jarrod Bowen are in Gareth Southgate’s latest England squad for games against Italy and Germany this month, but only Rice started in Denmark.

Rice looked calm and assured in the Hammers’ midfield, but Bowen lost the ball in the buildup to Silkeborg’s second goal.

Will West Ham’s duo make it to the World Cup in two months?

Southgate’s squad announcement deadline is October 19. England’s first game is on November 21 against Iran.

West Ham’s next game is on Sunday at Everton, live on Sky Sports (kick-off 2.15 pm).

After the international break, the Hammers host Wolves and Fulham before playing at Anderlecht on October 6 (kick-off 5.45 pm).
