Scamacca nets stunner as West Ham survive scare against Silkeborg IF

West Ham United survived a late scare to secure a 3-2 win over Danish side Silkeborg IF.

The Hammers have now won both games in their Europa Conference League group.

Kasper Kusk netted for the home side after five minutes with a first-time finish.

The Hammers levelled eight minutes later through a Manuel Lanzini penalty after Maxwel Cornet was fouled in the box.

A stunner from summer signing Gianluca Scamacca put the visitors ahead after 25 minutes.

Craig Dawson increased the lead before half-time, but the Danes fought back in the second-half.

Soren Tengstedt smashed the ball past Alphonse Areola to give the hosts a lifeline in the 75th minute.

Areola then produced a fine one-handed save late on to deny Silkeborg substitute Tonni Adamsen a memorable equaliser.
