Hangeland: Effort came to nothing

Published Add your comment

Brede Hangeland was left feeling like Fulham's Europa League exertions were "all for nothing" after they crashed out of the competition on Wednesday.

The Cottagers started the 14th European match of their mammoth season knowing victory over Group K's bottom side would secure a place in the final 32. But Fulham squandered victory three minutes into stoppage time as substitute Djiby Fall headed home, with the 2-2 draw resulting in Wisla Krakow finishing second instead.

"It's really hard to take," Hangeland told the club's official website, www.fulhamfc.com. "We didn't play a good game, but we had by far the better chances and I can't believe we drew. To go out like that with the last kick of the ball is very, very frustrating and hard to take."
