The British-born Ghanaian midfielder, has reacted to his game for West Ham United against Romanian team FCSB on Thursday night in the UEFA Conference League.
The Hammers became the first side to progress from the UEFA Europa Conference League group stage with a 100 per cent record as a much-changed side comfortably beat FCSB 3-0 at National Arena. Pablo Fomals’ brace and an own goal from Tchakonte, gave the English club a commanding away victory in Bucharest. With just over twenty minutes to be played, Moyes introduced three more members of the Academy of Football as Ghanaian budding midfielder Keenan Appiah-Forson, Freddie Potts and Harrison Ashby entered the field.
There would then be further debutants as Swyer and Casey were brought on in the closing stages taking the total of players from the Academy of Football to feature in Bucharest to nine – four starters and five from the substitutes’ bench. The Irons played out the final ten minutes with an impressive nous for such a young group of players, although a crucial late save from Alphonse Areola ensured the Irons kept their third clean sheet of the Group B campaign and that no gloss would be taken off an eighth straight win in European competition this season.
