Moyes reflects on West Ham’s two-year journey

“We’ve got a really good group of lads, I’m really lucky,” Moyes said after the game.

“The journey over two years – we were trying to avoid relegation and now we’re talking about getting to the semi-final of a European tournament. It’s fabulous and we’re all going to look forward to it.

“Look, we’ve not won any trophies yet, we’re trying to compete and qualify for European football again if we can.

“But to get to the latter stages, we’ve beaten Sevilla and Lyon now – big clubs who are used to European football. But we go again.

“When we were qualifying last year, you could hear the West Ham supporters shouting ‘we’re going on a European tour’ and they’ve had a pretty good tour this year.

“Belgium, Croatia and France tonight. I’m sure they’ll all be looking forward to going to Germany as well.”

Declan Rice: “There were a few incentives for us to win tonight”

Declan Rice and West Ham have let their football do the talking after some cheeky social media play from Lyon.

“There were a few incentives for us to go out there and win tonight, 2 Rice said after the game.

“Obviously, Dembele winking at the camera in the first leg and then their Twitter admin somehow saying they do not see how they’re not going to get through.

“Those things come back to bite you and we stayed quiet, put in a performance and now West Ham are in the semis. What more do we want?”
