Hamburg SV 1 West Ham United 3

The Irons have returned to winning ways with a 3-1 defeat of Bundesliga outfit Hamburg SV.

Hammers started well and took the lead on 15 minutes when the Alou Diarra converted a Matt Jarvis corner on 15 minutes.

James Tomkins doubled the lead, rising to head home another Jarvis corner on 28 minutes.

Hamburg were not without their chances and former Spurs man Rafael van der Vaart's corner on 42 minutes was headed home by Heiko Westermann to reduce the deficit.

However, Matt Jarvis was looking lively and claimed a third "assist" just before the break, being brought down by Diekmeier to give United a penalty. Ravel Morrison sent the 'keeper the wrong way to restore the two goal lead.

The second half was less eventful, with the plethora of pre-season substitutions inevitably disrupting the flow of the game, and a few decent saves from Stephen Henderson ensured that United came away with their first win of the German tour, following the weekend's 4-1 defeat to Mainz at the weekend.
