Fulham Advance in Inaugural Europa League

The Cottagers European adventure will continue despite losing 1-0 to Amkar Perm today in their second leg of the Europa Leauge tie. Fulham advance on a 3-2 aggregate over the Russian side.

Fulham managed the close loss despite missing five of their regular starters, including regular starting strikers Andy Johnson and Bobby Zamora, midfielders Clint Dempsey and captain Danny Murphy as well as regular starting left back Paul Konchesky. Still running out a 4-5-1 kept Fulham on top in the tie.

Fulham are now in the group stages and the group stage draw will take place tomorrow.
