West Ham's Elliot Lee takes to Twitter to celebrate first goal for club

West Ham Upton Park

The 20-year-old scored the winner in the Europa League second leg match against Lusitans.

West Ham forward Elliot Lee celebrated his first goal for the club on Twitter yesterday, a strike that saw his side comfortably into the next round of the Europa League with a 1-0 win away to Lusitans in Andorra.

Boasting a 3-0 aggregate cushion from the first leg, the youngster netted his first goal in just his 5th game for the Hammers, smartly scoring in the 21st minute to ensure Slaven Bilic continued his winning start at the club's new manager despite Diafra Sakho's early dismissal.

The academy graduate can only hope he has managed to catch the Croatian's eye to the degree that he is involved with the first team this season.

Lee has already demonstrated some goalscoring ability in his two short loan spells away from the club, scoring once in four games for Colchester United and three times in eleven matches for Luton last year - which included a goal on his debut.

If the 20-year-old is to make a success of his ability as a player, he will likely be calling on the advice of his dad, former Newcastle, West Ham and England star Rob Lee, who was a superb goalscoring midfielder during his heyday.
