The club’s official Twitter posted a clip of the striker with the hashtag ‘OnThisDay’ and supporters have been flocking to hark back and recollect their memories.
The Hammers went on to win the match with Frederic Kanoute the other Iron on the scoresheet, but it’s a match that will be best remembered for Di Canio’s moment of inspiration.
Here’s a pick of the reactions…
