It has felt like a long wait to see Pablo Fornals in London Stadium for the first time.
The Spaniard was in Italy for the Under 21 Euros throughout the summer, where he helped his nation to glory with two goals and an assist.
While this has built excitement, many fans were hoping to see him in East London and that has now happened:

While Hammers fans are happy to see this, there also seemed to be a lot of excitement from the player himself – as it looked as though he couldn’t wait to get on the pitch.
There was an infectious smile on his face, which many West Ham supporters will have been happy to see.
Having witnessed Marko Arnautović force his way out of the club, with his move to Shanghai SIPG being confirmed, it is good to see so many players who are genuinely excited to play for West Ham.
The club’s social media channels have shown that with training videos and that is backed up by Fornals’ joy.
It now seems as though there is a truly positive atmosphere around West Ham at the moment, which is always a good sign ahead of a new season.
The next step for Fornals is to get training and playing with his new team mates.
A selection of Twitter reaction to the video can be seen below:
