Bring out the bubbles. A winning start for West Ham at their new home and you can't ask for much more than that.

They will face sterner tests than tonight when the Premier League season gets under way. 

A little over a week to go until top flight domestic football swings into action. Where has the summer gone?

Fancy a bit more football? Then Portugal versus Argentina has just kicked off at the Olympics. You can watch that here.

Until next time, cheerio.

The training will go up another notch next week and West Ham will really hit the ground running to prepare for that London derby against Chelsea.

FULL-TIME

Brazil 0-0 South Africa

All over and Brazil are held by South Africa in their opening game at the Olympics. A disappointing result for the Olympics hosts, and the players know it. Gabriel Jesus is crouched on the floor, shaking his head as Neymar stands and stares off into the distance.

West Ham 3-0 NK Domzale (4-2 agg)

Next up for West Ham is a friendly against Juventus on Sunday, before they kick off their Premier League campaign at Chelsea a week on Monday.

Tough to draw too many conclusions about their prospects for the coming campaign from that game - which had the feel of a friendly - but there were definitely some eye-catching performances. 

Goalscorers Cheikhou Kouyate and Sofiane Feghouli were both lively, while Reece Oxford was particularly impressive in defence.

Josh Emery: I'm liking the look of the new home ground for West Ham... do you think they can still progress?  

Brazil 0-0 South Africa

Two minutes to go in Brazil, where it is still goalless. The hosts have not impressed against a side that has had 10 men for much of the second half.

If there's any late drama, watch it here.

When's the draw for the next round?

West Ham will find out who they'll play in the play-off round when the draw is made at Uefa's headquarters in Nyon, Switzerland at 13:00 BST.

The first leg will be played on Thursday, 18 August and the return leg will be on 25 August.

It was a little bit disappointing at the final whistle that so many West Ham fans had chosen to get away early and not stay to celebrate a convincing win but they will be back on Sunday [for the game against Juventus] and they will eagerly await the new season.

Brazil 0-0 South Africa

BBC Sport's Sam Merton at a FanZone in Rio: "The fans here in Praça Mauá think it's just a matter of time. Brazil keep knocking at the door, and the noise levels rise with each chance. There are some great football shirts among the crowd here too, including this amazing retro Flamengo number."

Watch the action here.

West Ham 3-0 NK Domzale (4-2 agg)

Job done for West Ham as they mark their first game at the London Stadium with a comfortable win. They go through to the Europa League play-off round - one round away from the group stage.

West Ham 3-0 NK Domzale (4-2 agg)

The 90 minutes are up and we are into stoppage time. West Ham won their first game at the Boleyn Ground 3-0 in 1904 and it looks like they are going to kick off the London Stadium era with the same scoreline.

Brazil 0-0 South Africa.

Really opening up here - a superb reverse pass from Neymar carves open South Africa but Gabriel Barbosa's shot is saved by Itumeleng Khune. 

There are 15 minutes left and you can watch them here.

SUBSTITUTION

West Ham 3-0 NK Domzale (4-2 agg)

Final change for West Ham as Andy Carroll makes way from promising youngster Ashley Fletcher. The 20-year-old striker joined the Hammers from Manchester United in July.

West Ham 3-0 NK Domzale (4-2 agg)

This game is fizzling towards its inevitable conclusion with just four minutes to go. 

NK Domzale know the game is lost and neither side are being particularly adventurous.

SUBSTITUTION

West Ham 3-0 NK Domzale (4-2 agg)

Another standing ovation as Sofiane Feghouli is replaced by 16-year-old forward Domingos Quina.

HITS THE WOODWORK

Brazil 0-0 South Africa

Manchester City fans look away now - your new signing Gabriele Jesus has just missed a sitter! He has the ball put on a plate for him by Luan, who feeds a pass towards the far post, but Jesus hits the woodwork from a yard or two out. 

Twenty minutes to go in that game. Watch it here.

GOAL - West Ham 3-0 NK Domzale (4-2 agg)

Sofiane Feghouli

There won't be a tense final few minutes here as Sofiane Feghouli finally does what he has threatened to do for a while - score after a quick break. He gets onto Mark Noble's pass and drives in low to secure West Ham's passage to the play-off round.

SUBSTITUTION

West Ham 2-0 NK Domzale (3-2 agg)

Standing ovation for Cheikhou Kouyate as striker goes off. His two goals - his first brace for West Ham - looks to have done enough. He is replaced by Pedro Obiang.

SUBSTITUTION

West Ham 2-0 NK Domzale (3-2 agg)

Last throw of the dice with 15 minutes remaining for the visitors as they make their third and final substitution. It's Juninho - not he of Middlesbrough fame - on for Zan Majer.

Brazil 0-0 South Africa

BBC Sport's Sam Merton at a Rio FanZone: "Nervy start to the second half from Brazil, and the fans in Rio are getting a bit twitchy. The sun is going down, and the temperatures dipping. Much like the fans' interest in this game. Needs a bit of magic."

RED CARD

Brazil 0-0 South Africa

South Africa are down to 10 men as Mothobi Mvala gets his second yellow after bringing down Zeca. 

Half an hour to go and it is still goalless, but a real chance for Brazil to capitalise.

Watch this game here.

West Ham 2-0 NK Domzale (3-2 agg)

Domzale know they have to throw caution to the wind as time ticks on and they've pushed further up the pitch. That's leaving them exposed at the back, though, and Enner Valenica looks to take full advantage as he breaks through but gets his shot horrible wrong, stubbing his effort into the ground and the ball skews harmlessly wide. 

Shocking effort actually.

Brazil 0-0 South Africa

Cracking chance for Lebo Mothiba but he cannot get enough pace on his header. South Africa on top.

Watch all the action here. 

SUBSTITUTION

West Ham 2-0 NK Domzale (3-2 agg)

Another change for the visitors as Elvis Bratanovic enters the fray, replacing Antonio Mance in attack.

CLOSE!

West Ham 2-0 NK Domzale (3-2 agg)

Sofiane Feghouli livens things up after a quiet spell as he goes close for West Ham, heading Michail Antonio's cross just wide. The Hammers could do with that third goal because NK Domzale still carry some threat going forward.

FULL-TIME

NK Maribor 1-0 Aberdeen (2-1 agg)

Aberdeen's European adventure is over as a late, late own goal by Graeme Shinnie has given NK Maribor a 2-1 aggregate win.

West Ham 2-0 NK Domzale (3-2 agg)

Just under 30 minutes remaining and the visitors make the first change of the game. Lucas Horvat is replaced by midfielder Zeni Husmanu.

Brazil 0-0 South Africa

Second-half begins. No changes.

Not the best surface. Neymar tries to take a shot and a huge chunk of turf leaves terra firma.

You can watch the action here.

NK Maribor 0-0 Aberdeen (1-1 agg)

Tense times in Slovenia as Aberdeen's game against NK Maribor enters the final few minutes. The Dons need a goal, otherwise they are going out.

Follow it here.

West Ham 2-0 NK Domzale (3-2 agg)

Matic Crnic tries to find a way through three West Ham defenders and almost succeeds, but Mark Noble is wise to it and gets across to put the tackle in, much to the appreciation of the home fans as they burst out into warm applause.

West Ham 2-0 NK Domzale (3-2 agg)

West Ham have a free-kick on the edge of the box. It comes after some fancy footwork by Enner Valencia as he dances past three defenders before he is fouled on the edge of the area. Valencia, quite rightly, wants to take the free-kick but he sends it harmlessly over.

What's happened to the ref?

West Ham 2-0 NK Domzale (3-2 agg)

A break in play because there's been an injury. Not for a player, but the referee. He's limping and has to be replaced by the fourth official. Got to do your warm-ups properly.

HALF-TIME

Brazil 0-0 South Africa

BBC Sport's Sam Merton at a FanZone in Rio: "It's fair to say that the half-time rendition of Johnny B. Goode blaring from the PA has got the crowd a lot more excited than the football on offer in the first half. DJ now spinning through a couple of Brazilian favourites to try and lift the crowd before the second."

You can watch the action here.

Elsewhere, it has finished Honduras 3-2 Algeria.

'A real challenge'

Former QPR and Charlton forward Bradley Allen, speaking on BBC Radio London: "Arsenal, Middlesbrough and Derby had some really poor results when they moved into their new grounds. Something West Ham are going to have to deal with is visiting teams coming here. 

"A beautiful playing surface, a full house...visiting players are really going to look forward to coming here. It's a platform for visiting players and the first few months could be a real challenge for the Hammers."

West Ham 2-0 NK Domzale (3-2 agg)

Sofiane Feghouli has impressed so far in this game - a great outlet for the Hammers on the counter and the winger leads another attack as an NK Domzale attack breaks down, but he is tackled by Jure Balkovec just as he tries to find Andy Caroll with a cross.

YELLOW CARD

West Ham 2-0 NK Domzale (3-2 agg)

Straight from the off, Cheikhou Kouyate charges forward and he is brought down by NK Domzale skipper Kenan Horic, who is booked as a result.
