18:45 - Hello everyone I am Danial Kennedy and welcome to VAVEL's coverage of West Ham's third-round Europa League qualifier against NK Domazle

After a 2-2 draw at what proved to be the last European night at Upton Park, it was all to play for on the continent. Lanzini gave the Hammers an early lead, but a brace from Constantin Budescu saw them crash out.

West Ham actually reached this stage of qualifying last season, when they came up against Romanian side Astra Giurgiu.

The Hammers and their upcoming Slovenian opponents have never faced off against eachother, but Bilic's side have become regular's at this stage of this European competition.

He concluded: “I made my debut in the Europa League last season" and played "two or three more and that helped me go on and play the first game in the Premier League" and “hopefully I can do the same this summer. It would be good to be part of the squad to play in the first game at the new Stadium next week too.”
Oxford said: "I’m happy to be back here for pre-season now. I’m fit, because I’ve been involved at the U19s Euros" and wants to but "push on" and is hopeful to "play a couple of Europa League games and push on for the season."

Significant absentees could see youngster Reece Oxford, brought into the side, and the 17-year-old is relishing such an opportunity.

There are some significant absentees from Bilic's side, with the recent injuries to Manuel Lanzini and Aaron Cresswell been huge blows.

Bilic concluded:  “On that level they impressed me, so we are expecting a really tough game on Thursday.”

He continued: "They are a very brave team when they have the ball in the opposition half" and are "trying to play very open football" and a "modern type of football."

Bilic told whufc.com: "The opposition is good. I’ve seen a couple of games they have played against Shakhtyor Soligorsk and they are very organised."

They managed to claim victory in their final warm-up game, with goals from Andy Carroll, Sofiane Feghouli and Ashley Fletcher giving them the win over Karlsruher SC, and Bilic believes his side are ready for Thursday's test.

Slaven Bilic's men have traveled to both America and Austria for their preparations, but have won just the one of their five matches, with two draws and defeats.

West Ham will be hoping that they can build upon heir excellent campaign last year, with a good early start in the Europa League, but it has been a mixed bag of results in the pre-season preparations.
