Coddington & West Ham Defeat Feyenoord in International Cup
Remi Coddington and his West Ham United Under 21 teammates signed off the first half of their 2022/23 season with a convincing 3 - 0 win over Feyenoord in the Premier League International Cup.
Mark Robson's young Hammers, who have beaten Wolverhampton Wanderers and Tottenham Hotspur in the last ten days in Premier League 2, continued their recent good form at Chigwell Construction Stadium with a fine showing against the Dutch outfit.
Divin Mubama ensured the perfect start on nine minutes, unleashing a powerful finish to give West Ham the advantage before Nesto Groen volleyed wide for the visitors.
Jaden Slory poked an effort narrowly wide for Feyenoord before Mubama stuck a right-footed effort over the bar from Archie Woods' clever-cross, meaning the hosts retained a one-goal advantage at the interval.
The home side doubled their lead on 52 minutes when the industrious Regan Clayton battled to retain possession on the left-flank, before pulling an inch-perfect cross back for Mubama to coolly place an effort in at the near post.
Clayton and Mubama would again combine, leading to the striker hitting the woodwork, but the 18-year-old would not be denied his hat-trick, eventually tucking in from a clever free-kick routine 18 minutes from full-time.
