FFC 3 Coritiba 1

Sunday 24 March 2013 19:05

Goals from Cauley Woodrow, Jordan Evans and Muamer Tankovic earned Fulham a 3-1 win over Brazilian side Coritiba in the opening game of the Dr Pepper Dallas Cup on Sunday.

At the 92,000 capacity Cotton Bowl Stadium, Woodrow put Fulham in front on the stroke of half-time with a far-post header, with the same player then seeing an effort disallowed for offside early in the second period.

But with Solomon Sambou pulling the strings in midfield, the Whites soon had their second when substitute Evans scored with his first touch of the game.

A classy finish by Tankovic made it 3-0, before Coritiba pulled a late goal back after some sloppy play by Fulham.

The Whites are next in action on Monday when they face LA Galaxy.

Fulham: Rodak, Passley, Arthurworry, Grimmer, Richards, Sambou, Minkwitz, Tankovic, Williams, Banya, Woodrow.
