West Ham have not had a lot of Brazilian’s playing for them in the Premier League and it is no surprise that Anderson is just the second one to score for them.

Their last Brazilian player was Nene, who was signed on a free transfer in 2015. The three Brazilians mentioned in the article are also the only ones to have played for the Hammers in the Premier League.
