West Ham United has emerged victorious in the Europa Conference League final. The team secured a 2-1 win against Fiorentina with an incredible last-minute goal by Jarrod Bowen.

A Thrilling Victory

The match saw West Ham United take the lead when Said Benrahma scored a penalty in the 60th minute, following a handball by Fiorentina’s Cristiano Biraghi. However, Fiorentina quickly retaliated with Giacomo Bionaventura equalising just five minutes later. The game seemed to be heading towards a draw until Bowen’s sensational late winner in the 90th minute.

The victory was not without its tense moments, as West Ham had to endure over eight minutes of stoppage time after just five was shown on the fourth official’s board. The first half of the match was marred by objects being thrown by West Ham fans onto the pitch, one of which struck Biraghi and caused a head wound.

A Major Milestone for David Moyes

This victory marks the first major trophy of David Moyes’ managerial career, which began 25 years ago with Preston. West Ham started their Europa Conference League campaign ten months ago, in qualifiers against Danish side Viborg.

They comfortably navigated their way through the two-legged tie, and then were drawn in a group with Romanian team FCSB, Silkeborg from Denmark, and Anderlecht. In the knockout stages, they beat AEK Larnaca, Gent, and AZ Alkmaar en route to the final.

Adding to the Trophy Cabinet

With previous victories in the Cup Winners’ Cup in 1965 and the Intertoto Cup in 1999, West Ham have now added the Europa Conference League to their list of European trophies. This win is a testament to the team’s hard work and dedication, and it will undoubtedly boost their morale for the upcoming season.

This victory is a significant achievement for West Ham United, and it will be exciting to see how this success propels them in their future endeavours.
