New Hammer has a head for goals

New Hammer Konstantinos Mavropanos gave a glimpse of what David Moyes saw in him with two goals tonight for Greece in the Euro qualifiers.

The West Ham centre-back showed an eye for a goal as he rose high to score Greece’s second goal in the second half against Gibraltar, he later scored another with his head on 82 minutes.

The 25-year-old defender scored eight goals in the Bundesliga for VfB Stuttgart.

He could prove to be a deadly combination at the end of James Ward Prowse’s corners; perhaps that was one of the reasons the Hammers signed him.

The 25-year-old returns to the Premier League having made seven appearances in the competition during a three-year stint at Arsenal.

Mavropanos failed to become a first-team regular at the Emirates Stadium and spent two seasons on loan with Stuttgart before making the move permanent last summer. He has signed a five-year deal with the Hammers for an undisclosed fee, reported to be in the region of £19m.

His start for Greece indicates he has recovered from his injury and is match-fit for selection after the international break.
