He has also been West Ham’s most threatening player overall in terms of numbers, having racked up an average of 3.6 shots on goal per 90 over 2021/22 (WhoScored).

Antonio’s scintillating performances since the start of the campaign didn’t go unnoticed, either, with the Irons frontman even clinching August’s Premier League Player of the Month award.

Can you name all of these forgotten West Ham flops...who is this Allardyce signing?

Having elected to represent Jamaica at international level this year, he is currently away with the Reggae Boyz on their World Cup qualifying tour as they seek to qualify from the CONCACAF region.

He only made his debut for the Caribbean nation in September but now, as shared by the club’s official Twitter channel, Antonio is off the mark for his country as he helped them to a 1-1 draw against El Salvador.

In scoring his first goal for Jamaica, the forward dispossessed an opposition player just past the halfway line before surging past two defenders, eventually dinking a cool effort over El Salvador’s keeper (CBS Sports).

Following his sublime goal, many West Ham fans have raved over what is a personal milestone for Antonio, and one which should help to maintain his confidence heading into the busy winter period.

One Hammers fan called it ‘fantastic news’ as many others celebrated – check out some of their reactions below.
