West Ham fans react as Anthony Scully scores his 12th goal in nine games

West Ham youngster Anthony Scully scored yet again last night as the youth team were beaten by Wolfsburg B.

It was a topsy-turvy encounter in East London last night as Wolfsburg returned to Germany with three points. They claimed a 3-2 win against West Ham U21s in the Premier League International Cup.

Joe Powell fired West Ham into the lead in the first half as his free-kick evaded everyone. Wolfsburg reversed the score to make it 2-1. Then, before half-time, Powell’s free-kick found Scully to volley home an equaliser.

Although Wolfsburg scored a late winner, West Ham fans wanted to talk about Scully. The 20-year-old has been on fire this season since moving from attacking midfield to a centre-forward role.

Few would have predicted Scully’s success as a striker. The versatile youngster has now scored a stunning total of 12 goals in his last nine matches for the U23s. This is not a tally that goes unnoticed.

With West Ham struggling for depth in the striker department, the Republic of Ireland youth international has shown why he deserves a shot. Here are some West Ham fans discussing Scully’s first-team prospects.
