Hangeland sends Cottagers through

Published Add your comment

Brede Hangeland's goal sent Fulham into the last 16 of the Europa League with a memorable night for Roy Hodgson's men seeing them progress past Shakhtar Donetsk 3-2 on aggregate.

Hangeland scored against the run of play to secure a 1-1 draw on the night and dump out Shakhtar, the 2009 UEFA Cup winners.

Jadson pulled one back for the dominant hosts but, with goalkeeper Mark Schwarzer pulling off a series of superb saves, the Londoners made it through despite a stoppage-time red card for skipper Danny Murphy.
