Tomas Soucek took to Twitter last night after West Ham beat Lyon 3-0 in the Europa League at the Groupama Stadium.

The Hammers players produced an unbelievable performance against Lyon last night and progressed through to the Europa League semi-finals after a 4-1 aggregate victory over the French side.

What a magical night it was for the football club.

The West Ham fans deserve this. We have seen our club go 42 years without a trophy and perhaps this season that long wait will end.

If we are to have any chance of winning the Europa League, we will need to see the best from Tomas Soucek and Vladimir Coufal.

The Czech duo have more European experience than anyone else at the London Stadium. And they both showed just how important that can be against Lyon last night.

Soucek, 27, put in a top-class performance against Lyon last night. As did his fellow countryman Coufal, 29.

Neither have been anywhere near their best this season but they proved last night just how important they both still are to this West Ham team.

One thing that you can never accuse either of them lacking is determination. Actually you can add fight, character, willingness to run and attitude to that list as well.

Soucek and Coufal were like energiser bunnies last night! So much so that UEFA had to dope test them after the match:


It’s good to have the two Czech boys back on top form, because we will need them between now and the end of the season.

The 3-0 win for West Ham against Lyon was undoubtedly one of the best nights in our history. And Soucek and Coufal played a huge part in it.
