West Ham stars prepare for departure with silverware in tow as Declan Rice leads trophy snaps
West Ham stars have landed back in England with the Europa Conference League title in tow ahead of tonight's open-top bus parade through London.
The Hammers triumphed over Fiorentina - and ended their 43-year wait for a major trophy - after a late Jarrod Bowen strike wrapped up a 2-1 win for them in Prague.
Celebrating players might feel slightly hungover after they were pictured partying until the early hours of Thursday morning in the wake of their historic victory.
Some wore spectacles on the flight home from Prague, possibly hiding the weary eyes of a hangover, but Hammers captain Rice was all smiles as he prepared to board the plane back to England.
The European trophy was passed around the cabin as players and staff posed for pictures ahead of touching down back on home turf with the piece of silverware.
Lucas Paqueta andEmerson Palmieri posed with Rice while appearing relatively chipper despite their late-night antics in the Czech capital.
Hammers goalkeeper Areola, Maxwel Cornet, Said Benrahma, and other first-team members then huddled round a beaming Kurt Zouma who was clinching the trophy.
