The English forward of Nigerian descent scored his first goal for the Hammers in their victory over Darren Moore’s Donny
Oladapo Afolayan made a flying senior debut for West Ham United in Saturday’s 4-0 defeat of Doncaster Rovers in a fourth round FA Cup game.
The 23-year-old, who returned to the Hammers after completing loan moves to Oldham Athletic and Mansfield Town, was brought on for Tomas Soucek in the 70th minute and he did not disappoint – finding the net just eight minutes after his introduction.
Prior to this match, Afolayan had played for West Ham’s U23s against Tottenham Hotspur on Friday night. Against the Donny, he showed no signs of fatigue as he ran into the box to score a rebound from goalkeeper Ellery Balcombe’s save off Ryan Fredericks.
