It was an emotional night for longtime West Ham captain Mark Noble, but that didn’t stop him from making sure his team left a good impression on defeated opponents Lyon.
Noble was a late substitute as the Hammers overcame seven-time champions France in the Europa League quarter-finals, running away with a 3-0 away win that saw them tie 4-1 in total.
