Scamacca admits he’s created a special link

Gianluca Scamacca celebrates scoring in the win over Fulham

By Hughie Southon

Gianluca Scamacca has revealed the brilliant understanding his is starting to forge with record signing Lucas Paqueta.

The Brazilian may not have been at what the world knows in his superlative best for the Hammers yet, but his form is seriously starting to show at times and the Hammers front man was quick to pay tribute to him following the win over Fulham at the London Stadium yesterday (Sun).

The No 7 had missed two or three chances ahead of scoring a goal which in terms of calm finishes was as great as it gets although with VAR looking at possible offside and handball the celebrations were sadly slow in starting.

In the end we got to verdict and justifiably so for a goal which was the start of a much-needed recovery after the slow start

He explained to www.whufc.com that Paqueta had played a major part on the goal saying: “Lucas Paquetá and I have a good connection.

It’s one we also have with Bowen, Rice, and everyone in the team all together. We found a good solution to going behind today, but Lucas is a brilliant player and it’s a pleasure to play to him.”

“This was an important win,” the Italian international told West Ham TV. “We had a lot of chances in the first half and I think our reaction was really good. 

“We were really angry after Fulham’s goal, but we had a good reaction as a team. We won a really good match and it was an important win.”

The 23-year-old’s rich vein of form in front of goal continued with an audacious finish over Bernd Leno just after the hour mark.

Once his goal was confirmed, Scamacca ran to celebrate with the home fans at London Stadium, with the attacker delighted to share in the moment with the Claret and Blue Army.

“The fans were amazing, like they are always! To celebrate with the fans was a really special moment.”
