Rapid Vienna 0-2 West Ham United: Hammers move into Europa League last 16

Andriy YarmolenkoAndriy Yarmolenko's goal was his first for West Ham since scoring in a 4-0 win over Doncaster in the fourth round of the FA Cup in January

West Ham secured their place in the Europa League last 16 with a win against Rapid Vienna in a match played behind closed doors in Austria.

Andriy Yarmolenko put the Hammers ahead just before half-time when he headed in at the back post from Nikola Vlasic's cross.

Minutes later, Yarmolenko was fouled by Maximilian Hofmann and captain Mark Noble fired the resulting penalty into the top corner to double their lead.

David Moyes' side are now guaranteed to win Group H with a game to spare.

The Hammers won the European Cup Winners' Cup in 1965 and lost in the 1976 final. Their run in this season's Europa League is already their best performance in European competition since 1980-81.
