After the historic trophy win, 19-year-old Connor Reid, who had gone to the game with his father Alex, jumped over a 16-foot wall while waiting for a taxi. Connor fractured his head and had to have his spleen removed. He has been in the hospital since then and is unable to go back to England.

“So after last night’s great performance, my son had a bad fall and is currently in a hospital in Prague,” dad Alex wrote on Twitter. Reid had his skull fractured by broken ribs and his spleen removed. According to his father, he lost his balance while waiting for Uber while sitting on a wall and was unaware that there was a 5-metre drop on the other side.

The parent said he had no clue what to do and that the adolescent didn’t have travel insurance. Connor’s return home has now received more than £5,000 on GoFundMe, significantly beyond the initial £1,000 target. Since his return, Reid is in bits and really fatigued. He has no memory of the fall even though he remembers the game.

West Ham defeats Fiorentina 2-1 to win the Europa Conference final.

West Ham’s hiatus from a European title was ended by a 2-1 victory over Fiorentina in the Europa Conference League final. The Hammers defeated Fiorentina in Prague thanks to a late goal from Bowen, who capitalised on a brilliant assist from Lucas Paqueta. Since the FA Cup in 1980, this was West Ham’s first trophy in 58 years and their first in Europe.

After Bowen successfully secured a penalty, Said Benrahma scored the game’s first goal. However, Giacomo Bonaventura equalised just four minutes later for Fiorentina . However, Bowen’s goal was unanswered by Fiorentina despite nearly eight minutes of added time which led the London club to its second European championship after the 1965 European Cup Winners’ Cup.

West Ham won 12 of their 13 games in the competition after qualifying, and even though they only ended 14th in the Premier League, they went undefeated during their European run. The triumph also ensures that the team will play in the Europa League the following season. Moyes is the first Scottish manager to have triumphed in a UEFA competition since Alex Ferguson’s second Champions League title with Manchester United in 2008.
