It has been a long time coming but the wait is finally over for Jack Wilshere, who opened his West Ham United account in the rather inauspicious surroundings of Rodney Parade and in the process scored his first goal in 19 months.

He lasted 81 minutes here, by which time West Ham were two goals to the good, courtesy of a tap-in from Pablo Fornals midway through the second half.
