Late Solano strike stuns Fulham

Published Add your comment

Nolberto Solano grabbed a controversial late goal for West Ham to secure a 1-0 victory against Fulham on the day Bobby Moore was honoured by his former clubs at Craven Cottage.

It was the 15th anniversary this weekend of Moore passing away and supporters stood for a minute´s applause as a tribute ahead of the Barclays Premier League clash, which was settled by Solano´s 87th-minute winner that appeared to come off his arm after he challenged goalkeeper Antti Niemi.

Carlton Cole had the best chances for the visitors prior to that, while Clint Dempsey wasted Fulham´s most promising move.
