Soucek nets hattrick as Czech republic beats Estonia

 West Ham midfielder Tomas Soucek scored a hat-trick as the Czech Republic came from behind to thrash Estonia in their opening World Cup qualifier in Poland.

Rauno Sappinen gave Estonia the lead but Patrik Schick scored a volley before Antonin Barak put the Czechs ahead.

Soucek scored twice before the break and tapped the ball into an empty net to make it 5-1 after 48 minutes.

Jakub Jankto scored a sixth before Henri Anier netted for Estonia.

It almost doubled Soucek's international tally, with four goals in his previous 29 Czech Republic games.

The 26-year-old has scored nine goals in 32 West Ham appearances this season.
