Out, out, out! World Cup woe for travelling Hammers


Filed: Thursday, 28th June 2018
By: Staff Writer


Cheikhou Kouyate and Lukasz Fabianksi's World Cup campaigns are over after both Senegal and Poland were knocked out of the competition this afternoon.

Even though Poland secured their first win of the competition courtesy of a 1-0 victory against Japan, the Europeans finished bottom of Group H.

Meanwhile Senegal, who went into the game leading the group, eventually finished third as a result of a 1-0 defeat at the hands of Colombia.

With Manuel Lanzini's World Cup having ended before it begun through injury, that leaves just one West Ham United player - Javier Hernandez - still in the competition.

His Mexico side face Brazil in the first knock out phase next Monday afternoon (July 2). England conclude their Group campaign later today with their final match in Group G against Belgium.
