West Ham finished their pre-season preparation with a defeat against La Liga side Osasuna.
The Hammers lost the game in a dramatic penalty shootout which saw both sides miss one of their five allotted kicks before Tomas Repka missed his penalty - twice - to give the visitors an 8-7 shootout win.
West Ham could have won the game had Yossi Benayoun - one of several players making their home debut - scored after Osasuna missed their seventh penalty. But the Israeli's attempted chip - much the same as Adam Nowland's against PSV in the same competition last season - was easily saved by the Osasuna keeper.
We'll have a full match report for you later.
West Ham United: Carroll, Repka, Konchesky (Ward 61), Ferdinand (Collins 54), Gabbidon, Reo-Coker (Noble 54), Dailly (Mullins 61), Benayoun, Etherington, Harewood (Zamora 54), Sheringham (Newton 54).
Penalties: Zamora (scored 1-1), Ward (missed 1-1), Collins (scored 2-2), Williams (scored 3-3), Newton (scored 4-4), Mullins (scored 5-5), Benayoun (missed 6-6), Gabbidon (scored 7-7), Repka (missed 7-8)
