Craig Dawson has made a plea to the West Ham fans ahead of our crunch Europa League clash with Eintracht Frankfurt at the London Stadium tonight.
The Hammers are all set to welcome the Bundesliga side to the London Stadium for the 8pm kick-off in the Europa League semi-finals tonight.
The first-leg will be hugely important for West Ham and David Moyes will be instilling into his players how important it is not to lose the match tonight.
We proved in the last round that a draw at home isn’t necessarily a bad result.
The Hammers also showcased our class against Sevilla last month, winning 2-0 against the Spaniards after extra-time at the London Stadium.
It was a memorable evening for West Ham and what made it so special was the unbelievable atmosphere and noise coming from the fans throughout the entire match.
And Craig Dawson is hoping for more of the same tonight…
Craig Dawson makes plea ahead of West Ham vs Eintracht Frankfurt clash
The London Stadium needs to be absolutely bouncing tonight.
We need to make the Frankfurt players really feel the pressure, just like we did for the Sevilla and Lyon games.
And Dawson told WHUFC.com how he and his West Ham teammates are going to need the fans to be in full voice at the London Stadium tonight:
“Looking back on the round of 16 match against Sevilla, the noise they made kept us going all the way. As I’ve already mentioned, they were excellent home and away against Lyon too, and we’re going to need that noise again from them. I know they’re going to turn up and be right behind us. The noise has been unbelievable for the last few games now and I’m sure it’s going to be even more crazy on Thursday.”
It would be great to win comfortably tonight. It will undoubtedly be a tough game against a very well-drilled Eintracht Frankfurt side though.
David Moyes has been around the block plenty of times and he will undoubtedly be telling his players to play with courage, aggression, tenacity and calmness.
If we get all of those things right, we should beat the Germans.
And it will certainly help the players if the London Stadium is bouncing throughout the entire West Ham vs Eintracht Frankfurt clash.
