West Ham United lost their aggregate lead, went down to ten men and needed a penalty shootout in order to squeak by Maltese side Birkirkara, 1-0 (winning penalties 5-3)
West Ham won the home leg 1-0, when really they should have been able to pad a larger lead. It nearly cost them today as Birkirkara leveled things in the 14th minute. Then, just before halftime, James Tompkins, who scored the lone goal of the first leg, was sent off questionably for a dust up with an opponent. That really got the idea of upset firmly in sight for Birkirkara, but regulation ended needing extra time. A second yellow for the hosts made it 10-aside in the added period and it went to the end needing a shootout. Diego Poyet stepped up knowing a score would win it, and he converted cooly. Like Hull City last season or Swansea a couple seasons ago, the Europa competition could hinder the Hammers in league play. Jul 23 - 6:09 PM
