West Ham are through to the Fourth round of the FA Cup after a tough win over National League side Stockport County.
David Mayes must have been a very nervous man after witnessing huge upsets already this weekend as both Derby County and Leeds United were knocked out of the FA Cup in the Third Round against lower league side.
80 minutes into the game and it was all square with both sides struggling to do anything due to the state of the pitch and overall treacherous conditions. Said Benrahma was seen clattering into the advertisement boards on the side of the pitch after losing his footing on the waterlogged pitch.
Moyes’s men eventually came away with the win thanks to an 83′ minute header from defender Craig Dawson and the man of the night then completed the weirdest FA Cup stat you’ve ever seen, The English man had not scored in the FA Cup for 10 years and 67 days and this goal tonight being only his 3rd goal in the competition altogether.
His first goal coming in the 2000s, his second in the 2010s and his third in the 2020s.
2010 – West Ham’s Craig Dawson scored his first FA Cup goal since netting for Rochdale versus FC United of Manchester in November 2010, 10 years and 67 days ago – indeed, all three of his FA Cup goals have come in different decades (2000's, 2010's & 2020's). Towering. pic.twitter.com/P1o9d6nHYu
