Ex Real Madrid star Gonzalo Higuain looks set to play for his new side Juventus when they come to East London to play West Ham in a friendly on Sunday.
The match will be the official first game at the newly renovated London Stadium, with the opening ceremony planned for before kick off. There will of course be one game played at the new ground before the Juventus match however. The Irons take on NK Domzale in the second leg of their Europa League 3rd qualifying tie. Domzale won the first leg 2-1 which will make an interesting reverse fixture at the former Olympic Stadium.
Higuain had been wanted by the Irons, but the player ended up in Italy at the Serie A champions.
Let’s hope West Ham show Gonzalo who he should have signed for!
