It was supposed to be a relaxing weekend, after all, their team had the game off thanks to the national team break. But it was she who made a nice patch in the West Ham football team, and the fans are afraid of the state in which the “Hammers” will go into the next fights.
West Ham beat Nottingham 3-2 last Sunday to win the Premier League after three games and move into the top half of the table.
After the match at the London Stadium, coach David Moyes’ men scattered to all corners of the world to fulfill their representative duties.
However, not everyone will return to the club in an ideal state of mind and, above all, fit. It mainly concerns the four mainstays of the team.
Striker Michail Antonio has injured his thigh muscle at the Jamaica national team event.
Winger Jarrod Bowen watched as a substitute in England’s 2-0 qualifying win over Malta on Friday and was left out of Albion’s squad for tonight’s clash with North Macedonia through injury at the weekend.
Czech midfielder Tomáš Souček, who decided the aforementioned match with Nottingham with the winning goal, suffered a nasty injury in the face, where he was kicked by a Polish opponent on Friday.
“Souček looks like he’s had a fight with Edward Scissorhands,” a fan with the nickname TheCockneyBoys wrote on the X social network, formerly Twitter, in memory of the famous movie character with scissors instead of hands.
“They had to blindfold his face,” another supporter of Aran noticed the treatment of Souček, who finished the match with Poland selflessly and should also start today against Moldova.
And the story of Souček’s compatriot Vladimír Coufal, who was kicked out of the national team due to a late-night binge, is well known across the English Channel.
It’s not been a great international break for us…
Soucek got a hole in his head
Coufal got sent home for partying til the am
We only one game each in… Christ
Never boring being a hammer ⚒️

“This is not a good international break for us,” lamented a West Ham fan nicknamed Chloe on the X network, just one of many Hammers supporters to voice concerns about the state of the squad. “You’ve just got to love international breaks,” added Ricky Forrest wryly.
“This is why I never mind when our players aren’t called up,” wrote fan account Up The Hammers.
“All this talk of ‘I can’t believe they didn’t nominate Ward-Prowse etc.’ – who cares? I prefer him to stay fit and focus on the club,” added Up The Hammers.
The aforementioned Ward-Prowse set up two goals in the match against Nottingham (one for Bowen, the other for Soucek…) and according to many supporters, Albion coach Gareth Southgate should have called him into his team.
After the international break, West Ham will face Burnley in the league on Saturday. What kind of staff will he go into it with?
