Ricardo Vaz Te is West Ham's hero after his late goal sealed the London club's return to the Barclays Premier League with a 2-1 win.

Vaz Te struck with three minutes remaining as the Hammers' first visit to Wembley since 1981 ended in a 2-1 victory over Blackpool in the npower Championship play-off final.

Carlton Cole had given Sam Allardyce's team the half-time lead but the Seasiders, promoted via this route two years ago, equalised early in the second half through Thomas Ince.
