West Ham Use Black Sherif’s Song to Celebrate Conference League Victory
West Ham United, the champion of the UEFA Europa Conference League, is still in good spirits one week after defeating Fiorentina in Prague.
The English club won the second iteration of the competition by defeating the Italian team 2-1, earning automatic qualification for the Europa League the following year.
The hit single Konongo Zongo by Black Sherif was the perfect choice for the Hammers to use to mark the one-week anniversary of their victory.
The uplifting song, which has been utilized in a variety of social media posts, tells the story of the emerging music star’s triumph.
West Ham used the lyric “I prayed for times like this” in a video uploaded to Tik Tok to express their joy at finally scoring.
In an entertaining game last week, the London club took the lead through Algerian forward Said Benrahma in the 62nd minute but La Viola responded five minutes later through Giacomo Bonaventura.
Jarrad Bowen stole the winner for West Ham in the final minute with an outstanding left foot strike.
