Cape Town - Diafra Sakho has promised to keep on scoring after his brilliant goal during his side's thrashing of Liverpool.

West Ham v Liverpool

Mark Noble's ball found Sakho in space on the right of the box and the Senegal striker floated what appeared to be a cross over Liverpool goalkeeper Simon Mignolet and into the net.

Enner Valencia, another new recruit, came rushing in to make sure but the ball was already over the line but the goal belonged to Sakho.

"I saw the 'keeper off his line, at the near post, and I only had one thing in mind," he told West Ham's website.

"I tried it and it came off. I wasn't sure if it was going to go in or not, but thankfully it's ended up in the net. I'm pleased, pleased for me and for the team.

"I've dreamed of scoring a goal as good as that, particularly here at the Boleyn Ground, but whether it be Liverpool or another club, a goal is a goal. I've not stopped receiving messages from my mates, so to know that they're pleased for me, makes me happy too."

"Goals are why I'm here and that's why West Ham signed me. But beyond that I'll to try to help the team, as much as I possibly can. And even if I don't score, as long as I'm useful, that's the important thing. I work every day in training to try to be as effective as possible."

Sakho's next attempt to score will come against a fragile Manchester United defence at Old Trafford on Saturday, September 27 at 16:00.
