SS Lazio 2 West Ham United 0

West Ham United ended their pre-season tour to Austria with an unfortunate 2-0 friendly defeat to Lazio. The Italians, slightly ahead of the Hammers in their pre-season preparations due to an impending Champions League qualifier, struck once in each half to earn victory. The second goal followed a poor clearance from Robert Green. Craig Bellamy and Carlton Cole came closest for the Irons. The Welshman missed a 68th minute penalty and Cole twice forced superb saves from Lazio keeper Marco Ballotta.

West Ham: Green; Spector (Collins 45), Davenport (Upson 45), Ferdinand (Dailly 60), McCartney (Gabbidon 45); Bowyer (Collison 65), Mullins (Boa Morte 45), Parker, Etherington (Reid 70); Ashton (Cole 45), Bellamy.
