Europa League: West Ham sink Dinamo on Michail Antonio, Declan Rice goals

In Group H action, West Ham United began their Europa League campaign with a 2-0 win at Dinamo Zagreb.

Michail Antonio gave West Ham a 22nd-minute lead in the Croatian capital.

This was when he rounded goalkeeper Dominik Livakovic and rolled the ball into an empty net after intercepting a poor back pass by Kevin Theophile-Catherine.

Declan Rice sealed the win with a fine individual effort in the 50th minute.

This was after he raced clear of his marker down the left from the halfway line and drilled the ball home through Livakovic’s legs from eight metres.

Meanwhile, a stoppage-time goal from Paul Onuachu gave Belgians Genk a 1-0 win at Rapid Vienna in the other Group H match.
