West Ham crushed Blackburn 5-1 in the FA Cup 5th Round at Ewood Park to take another step towards reaching the final.

On-loan Fenerbahce striker Emmanuel Emenike started for the Hammers and scored not once but twice on his full match debut.

Speaking after the game Emenike told the official West Ham website that despite being happy with his performance he could have scored more.


Emenike said: “I could have had more but I want to thank god for today and for the victory. I also want to thank the management.

“The game was open when it was ten against ten and we could have scored more. I am happy with my goals and for the team.”

The powerful striker scored on 64 minutes and bagged a brace when he extended the away sides lead further on 85 minutes.

Emenike scored his first goal for the Hammers since joining on a six-month loan from Fenerbahce last month.

The Nigerian international striker had made two appearances prior to the Blackburn game but this was his first actual start.
