Giacomo Bonaventura collected the ball with two players on him and sent an angled drive past the West Ham custodian five minutes after Fiorentina accelerated the tempo.

Early on, during a rare excursion forward, Declan Rice, who was playing in what is likely to be his farewell match for the club, barely missed with a shot, but otherwise Moyes’ team was mainly confined in their own half as Fiorentina dominated possession.

Fiorentina came close to completing the comeback when Rolando Mandragora’s effort from replacement Arthur Cabral’s pass was barely wide, but the game remained toss-and-turn in the dying minutes.

Tomas Soucek twice came close to scoring for the Hammers, but it was Bowen who would emerge as their hero. The 26-year-old maintained his composure to capitalise on Paqueta’s through pass and past Fiorentina keeper Pietro Terracciano, sending West Ham fans into a state of ecstasy.
