  • West Ham win Conference League
  • Emerson Palmieri 'completes the set'
  • Had won titles with Chelsea, Italy

WHAT HAPPENED? The victory, which was followed by wild scenes of celebration among the Hammers players, coaches and fans on the pitch, saw the club end its 58-year wait for major silverware, after last winning a trophy in 1965. Bowen netted in the 90th minute after Said Benrahama's penalty was cancelled out by Fiorentina's Giacomo Bonaventura.

THE BIGGER PICTURE: It was a special moment for many, not least left-back Emerson. It means he has now become the first and only player to win the 'full set' of UEFA trophies, having clinched Europa League and Champions League winners' medals with Chelsea in 2019 and 2021 respectively. The Brazilian-born player has also won the UEFA Super League with the Blues, as well as the European Championship, having been part of Italy's victorious squad in 2021.
