    A GROUP of West Ham fans were attacked in a Zagreb bar by thugs while savouring their Europa League win. The Hammers travelled in their numbers to witness a first European game in 22 years, and got their reward with a 2-0 win over Dinamo Zagreb. 2A West Ham fan in red (far left) fights off the attackers 2The thugs quickly began to flee once they realised they were in for a fight Goals from Michail Antonio and Declan Rice ensured a comfortable win despite David Moyes making changes to his starting line-up. And a group of West Ham fans continued their post-match celebrations in an Irish pub on Friday, only to be ambushed by Dinamo fans. The thugs, dressed all in black with masks covering their faces, rushed into the open-face bar. One patron quickly ran away as a table was sent tumbling. But moments after launching their attack the Dinamo fans retreated, with both sets of supporters throwing chairs at one another. Bottles were also used as missiles and one West Ham fan seemingly fended off the attackers...
    ANT AND DEC brought the house down on the first leg of their European tour as they kept the West Ham bandwagon rolling along. Dinamo Zagreb were supposed to be delivering a rude awakening to the East End boys about what life in Europe is like. 1Declan Rice scored a stunning solo goal in ZagrebCredit: Reuters But just as television’s top double act continue to shine, so Michail Antonio and Declan Rice are becoming an unstoppable force in football. Antonio notched his fifth goal of the season to give them the lead, before Rice marked his 150th appearance for the club by scoring a wonderful second as West Ham did a job on the Croatians. For months last season, many expected the bubble to burst but David Moyes and his team kept on to the end – and they look in no mood to let up this time round either. Moyes had admitted at times earlier this season he had no real idea how his team would fare when European competition came around. After all, this was the club’s first foray...
    DAVID MOYES is considering turning to Mark Noble to help West Ham handle Dinamo Zagreb in the Europa League this week. Hammers veteran Noble, 34, has played just two minutes all season, but Moyes may throw him into the deep end against the Croatian Champions who'll have the support of their hostile crowd. 1Noble may be recalled by Moyes for West Ham's Europa League clash against ZagrebCredit: PA The Hammers boss wants to attack Europe this season but also doesn't want to overuse midfield duo Declan Rice and Tomas Soucek. Moyes will want to keep at least one of his regular midfielders fresh for when Manchester United visit on Sunday, opening the door for Noble to make his first start of the season against Zagreb. Zagreb won't be a pushover and are expected to provide the Hammers a tough test. The Croatian outfit reached the quarter-finals of the competition last season and even knocked out Tottenham with a 3-0 home win en route. The passionate 35,000 crowd is also set to provide a new experience for many in the...

    ZAGREB, Croatia (AP) — Zlatko Kranjcar, a former Croatia national team coach who led his team to the 2006 World Cup and also played internationally for Yugoslavia before the country’s breakup, has died. He was 64. The Croatian soccer association said Monday that Kranjcar died in a Zagreb hospital after a short and serious illness. Croatian media reported that Kranjcar died early Monday after he was hospitalized last month. Kranjcar launched his career at Dinamo Zagreb in the 1970s, playing as a center forward. He later moved to Austrian club Rapid Vienna, where his career peaked. Kranjcar also played for the Yugoslav national team and later served as the first captain for an unofficial Croatian national team in 1990. Croatia became independent in 1991 and played its first official match since the breakup in 1992. Kranjcar coached the Croatian team from 2004-06, leading his country to the World Cup in Germany. Croatia finished third in its group behind Brazil and Australia and was eliminated. Croatia’s state HRT television described Kranjcar as “one of the best players in the history of...
    WEST HAM had perfected the art of securing ridiculously expensive signings who then proved to be a bit rubbish. So it is ironic that two players who cost a total of just £24.1million from Slavia Prague — Tomas Soucek and Vladimir Coufal — have helped transform David Moyes’ side on and off the pitch. 5Vladimir Coufal and Tomas Soucek have turned West Ham's fortunes aroundCredit: PA:Press Association Felipe Anderson, a £41m disaster, has been sent to Porto on loan while Seb Haller, a club-record £42m buy, moved to Ajax for £25m earlier this month. Neither were famed for their work ethic. Yet midfielder Soucek, who cost £19.1m, and right-back Coufal, a £5m bargain, have played a part in changing the club’s mindset and turning some players into workaholics. The pair visit West Ham’s training base every day — even if the rest of the squad are at home — to put in extra work. The toil paid off again Tuesday night for Soucek, who scored twice in the Hammers’ 3-2 win at Crystal Palace. Coufal is known by his...

    GENEVA (AP) — Long-time rivals Red Star Belgrade and Dinamo Zagreb both lost in the third round of Champions League qualifying on Wednesday. Red Star’s loss in a penalty shootout to Omonia, after a 1-1 draw in Cyprus, ended the Serbian champion’s bid to advance through all four qualifying rounds into the group stage for a third straight year.

    NYON, Switzerland (AP) — Dinamo Zagreb’s path back to the Champions League group stage will start away to Cluj or Floriana in the second qualifying round draw made Monday by UEFA. Soccer’s disrupted schedule during the coronavirus pandemic means draws and games in qualifying for the 2020-21 Champions League have started before the previous edition resumes Wednesday at the quarterfinals stage. Dinamo will travel to Romania or Malta for a single-leg game in an empty stadium on Aug. 25 or 26. One year ago, Croatia’s champion advanced through three qualifying rounds then began the group stage beating current quarterfinalist Atalanta 4-0. In pairings of runners-up in higher-ranked domestic leagues, AZ Alkmaar got a home game against Viktoria Plzeň and Lokomotiva Zagreb will host Rapid Vienna. PAOK Thessaloniki was drawn at home to Beşiktaş. Though Beşiktaş placed third in the Turkish league, it took runner-up Trabzonspor’s Champions League entry because of a one-season ban for breaking UEFA’s financial monitoring rules. Switzerland’s champion Young Boys will host Slovan Bratislava or KÍ of the Faroe Islands, who meet next week in the...
