Golden Goal

Thursday 20 September 2007

Fulham are back in action at Craven Cottage this Saturday as they take on Manchester City (buy tickets) and if the last home encounter, a 3-3 draw against Tottenham, is anything to go by this weekend’s match should be another entertaining affair.


Last time out at the Cottage, Diomansy Kamara was the hero as the Whites clawed their way back from a 3-1 deficit, the comeback culminated in a dramatic 90th minute overhead kick from the Senegal striker, who classed the goal as possibly the best of his career.


“My family came over to join me on the Friday before the game,” he explained. “My new daughter and my wife, and this made me more confident going into that match, so I was willing to try more things. It was maybe the best goal of my career. I scored some beautiful goals in Italy, but this was definitely my best goal in England.


“What the goal meant for the team made it even better. Tottenham played very well in that game, but we didn’t lose because we scored in the last minute, so it made us all very happy.


“It was the opposite for us against Wigan. We probably deserved to win there, but it was the same problem of conceding in the last 10 minutes. It’s happened now against Aston Villa, against Arsenal, and Wigan. We’re playing very well, but throwing games away late on and this is a problem that we need to resolve and I’m sure we will. If we can do this, I’m sure we’ll finish in the top 10.”
