Congratulations to Roy Hodgson and the Cottagers. Shakhtar Donetsk the UEFA Cup holders were stopped in their tracks as they were held by Fulham, 1-1. The London club went ahead 3-2 on aggregate for a memorable win.
Mark Schwarzer was kept very busy by Shakhtar’s Brazilian mob with Fernandinho and Willian letting fly some belters. But it was Brede Hangelend who put Fulham ahead diverting a Damien Duff free kick into the far left corner of goal.
Shakhtar came back after Douglas Costa, the next Ronaldinho took on the Fulham defense, cutting the ball back from the right for Jadson to slam home the equalizer. Fulham then held on for more than 20 minutes. In the dying seconds Danny Murphy was sent off but it did not matter.
