Tomas Soucek hopes to find form with national side after West Ham United struggles

Tomas Soucek is optimistic about finding some form with the Czech Republic side after a struggling start with West Ham in the early part of the season.

The Hammers are having a hard time in the ongoing campaign where they are placed in the drop zone after recording just four points from the first seven matches.

Soucek was quoted in a report by where he expressed optimism that the players will be able to turn the season around.

“It’s football. Sometimes you’re up, sometimes you’re down,” he said. “I believe we [Czech Republic] will show strength as one team.

“I believe we are in great shape. There is an excellent atmosphere in the team, we want to transfer it to the pitch.”

Important games ahead

West Ham entered the campaign hoping to improve what they did in the previous season where they finished seventh in the league table and also played in the semi-finals of the UEFA Europa League.

However, the 2022-23 campaign started on an extremely poor note and just after the first few weeks, it is already looking tough for the side to replicate or better what they achieved in the previous 12 months.

There is increasing pressure on David Moyes to turn things around, especially after the club spent a lot of money on recruiting players in the recently concluded transfer window.

It is becoming clear that the former Manchester United manager is looking to his senior pros to deliver the goods on the pitch and therefore he, as well as the fans, will be hoping that players like Soucek will start producing the kind of performances that are expected of them.
