West Ham United are through to the Europa League semi-final after thrashing Lyon 3-0 away from home.

Craig Dawson, Declan Rice, and Jarrod Bowen scored the goals for the visitors. However, Lyon had an early chance when Toko-Ekambi hit the post. After that, Lyon did not have many chances, but West Ham United had many.

West Ham United scored their first goal in the 38th minute when Fornals’ cross met Dawson at the near post for him to head it. Soon again, just before half time, in the 44th minute, Declan Rice scored and doubled their lead against Lyon.

West Ham went into the first half with a comfortable one-goal lead. After the restart, it took only 3 minutes for David Moyes’ team to find their goal. The third goal came through Jarrod Bowen when Pablo Fornals’ through ball met Bowen.

West Ham United will play Eintracht Frankfurt in the semi-final over two legs. Eintracht Frankfurt will travel to England to play their first leg against West Ham at the London Stadium.
