The Hammers progress to Conference League Final

West Ham United's European journey has been nothing short of spectacular. After 47 years, the Hammers are back into a European final following their 3-1 aggregate win over Dutch side AZ Alkmaar and will be facing Fiorentina in Prague on the 7th of June.

Although the game saw AZ the more dominant of the two sides, West Ham were able to prevail due to some fantastic work from fan-favourite Pablo Fornals in the dying moments of the game, as the Spaniard sent West Ham to the Europa Conference League final. The Hammers did a fantastic job in the first leg at the London Stadium, overturning a 1-0 deficit to win 2-1, thanks to goals from Said Benrahma and Michail Antonio. Going into the away leg 2-1 however was never going to be easy, especially against a side like AZ, as the Dutch side hadn't lost in 25 European home games until now - the last defeat coming to David Moyes' Everton in the 2007/08 season.

West Ham will be looking to bring a piece of silverware back to East London for the first time in 43 years, as their last trophy came in the form of an FA Cup win against London rivals, Arsenal.

Despite an underwhelming season for West Ham, with the looming prospects of relegation, they can certainly opt to end it on a high note by bringing back a trophy, along with prompting a third consecutive European campaign as they enter the Europa League if they manage the unthinkable in Prague.
