West Ham took on Hull City in the first-leg of their Barclays U21 Premier League Cup final last night, with nearly 10,000 people in attendance at Upton Park.
The Hammers won the match 1-0 with Djair Parfitt-Williams netting a late winner, to give his side a slender lead heading into the second leg.
It was Samuelsen’s performance which was the talk of Twitter after the match, though, as the Norwegian’s skill and creativity caught the eye.
Samuelsen returned to West Ham this week, after his loan spell at Peterborough United was cut short.
The 19-year-old had impressed at Posh, but he found it difficult to break into Graham Westley’s starting line-up towards the back end of the campaign.
Samuelsen did not look short of match sharpness for the development side, however, and he was at the heart of everything good the Hammers did.
Samuelsen showed wonderful dribbling ability throughout the contest, and there is great excitement about his future at Upton Park.
