Tomas Soucek captained and scored in the Czech Republic’s victory over Moldova to book their place in Euro 2024 next summer.

The West Ham midfielder was on hand to play pivotal role in his nations triumph, as the team booked their place in Germany, for which England will also take part.

It has been a somewhat difficult week leading into the match for the Czech Republic, following allegations of certain players going to a nightclub prior to a qualifying match, with Vladimir Coufal one of the players in question, who was subsequently exiled from the squad.

However it was a proud moment for Soucek, who was again captain for his national side, and it will be hoped that the performance and result will give him a confidence boost ahead of West Ham’s return to action domestically this weekend.

Our Hammers return to action when we face Burnley at Turf Moor on Saturday in the Premier League, in the hunt for another three points to get our season back on track – and back in the hunt for European football again next season.

It has however been a troublesome period this international break for David Moyes, with an injury reported to Michail Antonio whilst on international duty for Jamaica, and also Jarrod Bowen who returned from the England squad ahead of the draw to North Macedonia last night.

ExWHUEmployee will be keeping fans up-to-date on the situation regarding the injuries as they progress exclusively on The West Ham Way Patreon.
