West Ham end long wait to reach European final in Conference League.


West Ham reached their first European final for 47 years after Thursday’s 1-0 victory at AZ Alkmaar grappling a 3-1 aggregate success in the Europa Conference League semifinals.

West Ham hasn’t advanced to a European final since the 1976 European Cup Winners’ Cup, but they will have a chance to win their first significant prize since the FA Cup on June 7 when they take on Fiorentina in Prague.

While West Ham struggled in the Premier League this season they are unbeaten in Europe with 13 wins and a draw.

For Moyes it is another shot at European glory after they reached last season’s Europa League semifinals where they lost to eventual winners Eintracht Frankfurt.

Pablo Fornals scored West Ham’s winner in the final moments of the tense second leg to set up a clash with Fiorentina in the final in Prague on 7 June.
