Hammers’ delight as Prague power stuns Rangers

Tomas and Vlad will be thrilled

Slavia Prague – have powered their way into  the quarter-finals of the Europa League!

Vlad Coufal and Tomas Soucek will be delighted to have seen their former side pull off a decisive win over Rangers to progress to the last eight.

We have something of a twin relationship with Slavia and most Irons fans will be chuffed to bits!

Having played out a 1-1 draw with Rangers in the first leg, it was all to play for in Scotland.

Oladeji Olayinka and Nicolae Stanciu were on the scoresheet against the SPL giants, as Steven Gerrard’s champions were knocked out of the tournament.

Abdallah Sima may not have been on the scoresheet but this was a fine performance from the Slavs, as they roundly outclassed Rangers from the kick off.

Gerrard’s men did have two players sent off – Kemar Roofe and Leon Balogun – but this was a triumph that was well deserved for Slavia.

Indeed, Roofe’s sending off came after a frankly ludicrous high boot that saw the Slavia goalkeeper, Ondrej Kolar, kicked in the face. It was no surprise he was substituted.

Slavia look a tasty team, though, and they will be dreaming of Euro glory tonight!
