UEFA make special mention of West Ham achievement in video on social media

European football’s governing body UEFA have made special mention of a West Ham achievement in a video on social media.

West Ham continued their brilliant Europa League adventure when they overcame a 1-0 first leg deficit to beat Sevilla 2-0 and advance to the quarter-finals last Thursday night.

It was an unforgettable evening and one of West Ham’s biggest achievements for decades.

The Hammers have drawn Ligue 1 side Lyon in the next round with the games looming large on the horizon after this international break.

West Ham fans, boss David Moyes and his players have absolutely loved being in the Europa League this season and have fully embraced the competition.

And UEFA have loved having West Ham too.

Last summer UEFA showed how excited they were to be welcoming West Ham into the Europa League when they used Hammers star Tomas Soucek as the picture with their update about the competition.

The governing body have used the Hammers in several other posts too including this one from July.

Well a new post sees UEFA make special mention of a West Ham achievement in a video posted on social media on Tuesday.

“West Ham are the first English team to beat Sevilla in this competition,” UEFA posted on its Europa League account alongside the crossed Hammers and video of the winning goal from the memorable victory.

It seems UEFA are loving West Ham every bit as much as the Hammers are loving their competition.

Next up is Lyon. And former Hammer Joe Cole says his old club should not fear the midtable Ligue 1 side.

The majority of West Ham’s weary squad will get a much needed and well deserved rest over the international break.

And when they do face Lyon it will hopefully be apparent just how much of a favour Newcastle have done Moyes in West Ham’s quest for Europa League glory.

That’s after the Magpies took midfield star Bruno Guimaraes off their hands back in January.
