Video: West Ham Scored the Most Pre-Season Goal Ever and it Was Absolutely Brutal

Video: West Ham Scored the Most Pre-Season Goal Ever and it Was Absolutely Brutal

West Ham United may have scored one of the ugliest goals of the season tonight… and the new campaign hasn’t even started yet.

The Hammers are in Austria for pre-season training, with Slaven Bilic’s side having faced local rivals Fulham at the Sportzentrum Graz-Weinzödl.

And the result went according to plan, as goals from Manuel Lanzini and Ashley Fletcher were enough to secure a victory for the Premier League outfit.

What didn’t go to plan, however, was Fulham goalkeeper David Button’s evening.

In the first-half the 28-year-old shot-stopper nervously collected the ball on the edge of his area.

And with Fletcher rapidly closing in, Button’s awful first-touch allowed the Hammers youngster to pounce.

Unfortunately what followed was one of the most absurd goals you’re likely to see, one that truly belonged on a pre-season tour… never to be seen again.

Surely Javier Hernandez, who is expected to complete a move to the London Stadium in the next few days, will bring a bit more elegance to West Ham’s front line?
