Southampton players celebrate scoring against West Ham in the International Cup

Victory over West Ham secures top spot in Group A and a place in the last eight of PL International Cup

Southampton progressed to the knockout stages of the Premier League International Cup with a 3-0 win over West Ham United.

With new first-team manager Ralph Hasenhuttl in the crowd at Staplewood, first-half goals from Tyreke Johnson and Marcus Barnes put Southampton in control.

West Ham's hopes of a fightback were hit after the break by an own goal from goalkeeper Nathan Trott, who then saved a penalty.

Southampton go through as Group A winners, with seven points, a point above Dinamo Zagreb, who must wait to see if they make the last eight as one of the two best second-placed teams.

West Ham finish third on three points.
