Copenhagen v West Ham Utd: half time report

By: Staff Writer


It's all-square at the break in tonight's pre-season friendly against FC Copenhagen.

With Sam Allardyce sending out his strongest possible team - including Scott Parker and Robert Green, making his first appearance of pre-season - it is the first chance for Hammers fans to see the manager's new-look team.

And the initial impressions have been mostly positive, with the Hammers more than matching their Champions League-qualifying opponents in the opening 45 minutes.

Chances for both sides have been at a premium although the home side went closest to breaking the deadlock when Christian Bolanos fired inches over despite being well-placed on 36 minutes.

For the visitors, Kevin Nolan saw a 22-yard drive fizz over the bar on 34 minutes whilst a James Tomkins/Winston Reid combination saw the former head narrowly wide of the near post.

As always, we'll have a full report for you at the final whistle.

West Ham United: Green, Faubert, Reid, Tomkins, Ilunga, Noble, Nolan, Parker, Collison, Boa Morte, Piquionne.

Subs: Boffin, Spence, Brown, Sears, Montano, O'Brien, Nouble.

FC Copenhagen: Wiland, Thomsen, Zanka (c), Sigurdsson, Bengtsson, Bolanos, de Souza, Grindheim, Diouf, Santin, N'Doye.

Subs: Christensen, Bergvold, Nordstrand, Kristensen, Zohore, Oviedo, Absalonsen, Toutouh, Thomas, Ozdogan, Lindbjerg.
