Mystery surrounds bizarre event involving West Ham fans in Belgium after video emerges

Mystery surrounds a bizarre event involving West Ham United fans during the game against Genk in Belgium after video emerges.

West Ham came from behind to lead 2-1 at Genk with 10 minutes to go but conceded a late own goal to draw 2-2.

The result, coupled with Dinamo Zagreb’s win over Rapid Wien, means West Ham are guaranteed Europa League knockout football after Christmas.

It is another remarkable achievement for West Ham and David Moyes as he marked his 1,000th game as a manager.

Some West Ham fans will be waking up ever so slightly disappointed this morning knowing that a win would have made sure of safe passage through to the last 16 as group winners – a feat the Hammers are still highly likely to achieve with two games left in Group H.

But one West Ham fan in particular will be waking up this morning feeling worse than most if a video doing the rounds on social media is anything to go by.

One thing is for sure West Ham’s Europa League adventure has been eventful on and off the pitch.

During West Ham’s home win over Rapid Wien, what will surely go down as one of the strangest objects seen on the terraces at a football match, was spotted being used as a missile.

A huge water cooler bottle was seen being lobbed between the neighbouring home and away sections.

If the video is legitimate, let’s hope whoever’s finger it was is OK.
