West Ham United attacker Andriy Yarmolenko has been on international duty with Ukraine and he has impressed many Hammers fans who have been reacting to his performance as he helped his country beat Spain 1-0.
The Hammers tweeted that the winger captained Ukraine in the victory and also supplied the assist for the winner. Sky Sports also showed the goal on Twitter and this has seen a very positive reaction from much of the Irons’ fan base.
Yarmolenko has played 38 times for the east London side, scoring nine goals and registering five assists, per Transfermarkt. However, he has missed 45 games due to various injuries, preventing him from becoming a true stalwart at London Stadium thus far.
Can Yarmolenko fight his way back into the West Ham team?
Missing more games than he has played is definitely a concern, but following his good performance last night, he may have boosted his chances of establishing himself in David Moyes’ first-choice line-up.
Here is how Irons fans have reacted following Yarmolenko’s performance:
Also provided the assist with a cracking through ball. Big game player!

This guy is honestly probably the best player at West Ham, his technical ability is far far ahead of any player we have. People write him off way too fast because of lack of pace. https://t.co/AoYXfEC8nV
