West Ham beat Huddersfield to get first three points of season

Pedro Obiang’s heavily deflected goal was the moment of luck West Ham needed to set them on the way to their first points of the Premier League season as Huddersfield suffered their first defeat. The Hammers, whose manager Slaven Bilic was under pressure after three successive league defeats, were below par – although the visitors offered little threat. Javier Hernandez hit the bar in the first half, in one of West Ham’s few clear-cut chances. The breakthrough came in the 72nd minute when Obiang’s 25-yard strike hit Mathias Jorgensen’s back and looped over keeper Jonas Lossl.

Cricket is hugely popular in Pakistan, and cricketing authorities have been keenly working to revive the game at home.
