West Ham reached the quarter-finals of the Europa League on Thursday night.
David Moyes thrashed Larnaca 4-0 at the London Stadium after a 2-0 away win at Larnaca.
It was a good day for many of West Ham’s attacking players.
Gianluca Scamacca, whose Hammers future has been the subject of speculation, started and scored the opener.
Meanwhile, Jarrod Bowen responded to missing out on England with a superb brace.
However, there is no doubt that the striker who enjoyed the night the most will be Divin Mubama.
‘Brilliant, instinctive finish’
The West Ham academy graduate and boyhood fan scored his first senior goal in the clarets and blues
Four months later, he scored an own goal against FCSB, only to be awarded an own goal.
Mubama came on in the 54th minute for a triple substitution with Danny Ings and Maxwell Kornet.
Lucas Paqueta, Scamacca and Bowen make way for a trio.
Just 11 minutes later, Mubama scored.
The prolific Under-21 headed home Thomas Soucek’s header from Aaron Cresswell’s corner.
Sky Sports reporter James Savindra praised Mubama’s goal.
“Brilliant, instinctive finish from Mubama,” he said (16/3/23, 21:31).
“It was a great way to score the first goal for the club.
“Another success story for the prestigious West Ham academy.
“The teenager has an excellent scoring record at the youth level.
“The Hammers will end the night with four academy graduates, with a substitution by David Moyes at the end.”
Mubama will never forget this day, hopefully the first of many for him in fine wine and blue wine.
