Ten-man West Ham fell short of reaching a first major European final for 46 years as they were beaten 1-0 at Eintracht Frankfurt in Thursday's Europa League semi-final second leg, losing the tie 3-1 on aggregate.

Aaron Cresswell was sent off after 19 minutes following VAR intervention for denying a goalscoring opportunity, before an unmarked Rafael Santos Borre opened the scoring from close range (26) to extend Frankfurt's aggregate lead.

West Ham manager David Moyes was also sent off after he angrily kicked a ball towards a ball boy in the 78th minute, having watched his side struggle to recover after going a man down.

Explaining his dismissal, Moyes said: "I have to apologise for kicking the ball but the ball boy left it short and it was nicely on the volley for me."

I Call True: Oh dear West ham, they'd already made it difficult for themselves by losing the first leg at home, but when Cresswell got send off in the 19th minute it was always going to be to tough for them after that. Frankfurt were the better team on the night and deserved to go through. Didn't help when Moyes got a red card in the second half for kicking a ball at one of the ball boys either. bit of a shambles in the end truth be told!

The Hammers and their fans shouldn't be too despondent. It was a massive achievement for them to get that far and one to build upon in the coming seasons.
