Summer signung Gianluca Scamacca scores stunner as nervy West Ham come from behind to beat 3-2 Silkeborg in Denmark in the Europa Conference League on Thursday night.

The Danish side took a surprise lead at the KYSK park when Kasper Kusk fired Lukas Engel’s cut-back past Alphone Areola after just five minutes.

The Hammers responded almost instantly as Manuel Lanzini converted from the spot just eight minutes after the hosts’ opener.

David Moyes’ side then took the lead when summer recruit Gianluca Scamacca powerfully struck from distance on 25 minutes.

And the visitors doubled their advantage via a Craig Dawson header seven minutes before half-time.

The Hammers appeared to be cruising in the second half but a goal from Soren Tengstedt in the 75th minute prompted a nervy finish for the English side.

Yet West Ham held on to claim three points in Scandinavia and remain top of Group B in the Europa Conference League.
