Jamie Redknapp absolutely raved about Gianluca Scamacca after his performance for West Ham against Wolves this evening.
The Italian has made a really slow start to life at the London Stadium, especially in the Premier League.
Before today’s game, he had three goals to his name in the UEFA Europa Conference League but none in the Premier League.
That all changed this evening, however, after he smashed home a superb strike to put the Hammers 1-0 up against Wolves.
Scamacca was superb today in every single department. His goal was unbelievable but his all around contribution to the Hammers win was just as important.
And the 23-year-old’s display drew some praise from the Sky Sports studio…
Jamie Redknapp blown away by West Ham ace Scamacca’s display vs Wolves
The former Sassuolo ace is the real deal isn’t he!
He looked like he was totally in control against Wolves and he will undoubtedly be a potent weapon for us this season.
Redknapp absolutely raved about Gianluca Scamacca, when speaking on Sky Sports this evening (Saturday October 1st, 6:26pm):
This, this is brilliant. Unusually, he doesn’t look to get in box, he just waits. Ball falls to him, it pops up beautifully, the strike is so good. He waits for it, anticipates, nice touch, really, really good finish. First bit of quality in the game.
Scamacca really was superb for West Ham against Wolves tonight.
And it wasn’t just his goal that was exceptional. Everything about his performance oozed quality from his hold-up play to his aerial strength and exquisite touch.
Scamacca deserves to start for the next five or six games now. Let’s see what he’s made of.
The Italian’s performance for West Ham tonight against Wolves proves that he’s more than a good fit for the Premier League.
