It was a great international night for the Hammers big two – Manu Lanzini and Marko Arnautovic as they got on the score sheets for their respective countries tonight (Fri).
Lanzini started for Argentina against Italy, played the full 90 minutes and snatched a win for his side on 85 minutes with his first international goal, striking home a powerful effort from the edge of the penalty area.
Arnautovic grabbed two for Austria in their 3-0 victory against Slovenia. The forward, who has scored seven goals for the Irons this campaign, got off the mark on 36 minutes after David Alaba had opened the scoring twenty minutes earlier.
Arnautovic then got his second just six minutes into the second period with a looping header, taking the 28-year-old onto 18 international goals for his nation. The Hammers No7 was substituted with four minutes remaining of the contest.
Meanwhile of course, as reported here earlier, Declan Rice was named man of the match in the Republic of Ireland defeat against Turkey.
