Frankfurt vs West Ham LIVE: Europa League result, final score and reaction as Cresswell red card costs Hammers

Eintracht Frankfurt 1-0 West Ham (Agg 3-1): Follow the reaction after the Hammers lcrash out and fall short of the Europa League final

Moyes: 'we still believe'

Eintracht Frankfurt beat 10-man West Ham United 1-0 in their Europa League semi-final second leg to reach their first European final in 42 years with a 3-1 aggregate victory.

In front of a deafening 48,000 crowd, Rafael Borre drilled in the winner for the hosts in the 26th minute, beating the English club for a second time following a 2-1 triumph in the first leg last week.

West Ham, who played most of the game with 10 men after left back Aaron Cresswell was dismissed for a professional foul on Jens Petter Hauge in the 17th minute, were toothless throughout. Hammers manager David Moyes was also sent off in the 79th minute for angrily kicking a ball in a frustrating and scrappy end to West Ham’s European run this season.

The Germans, who last reached a European final in 1980, will face Rangers on May 18 after the Scottish side knocked out RB Leipzig.

90 mins: CLOSE! Another chance for West Ham!

It’s from yet another corner. Soucek climbs highest to meet the ball six yards out but can only direct his header wide of the left-hand post! Should have done better.

89 mins: That was a chance for West Ham though!

Rice finds Antonio with a wonderful crossfield pass. The Hammers striker is drifting inside from a position left of centre and takes it down superbly on his chest but Trapp is equal to his half volley as he plucks it out of the air.
