Colin Omogbehin was full of praise for his team following the Under-18s’ 7-0 demolition of Reading on Saturday. In particular, the midfield trio of Sylvester Jasper, Sonny Hilton and Fabio Carvalho, who were involved in all seven goals.
“I thought it was our best performance of the season so far,” he told fulhamfc.com. “The boys have been threatening to do that all season. On Saturday, we took advantage of our instinct and it was fantastic.
“I was very impressed with them (Carvalho, Jasper and Hilton), they are talented players. The way it is with pushing players on to the 23s, some boys come back, we haven’t always had them playing together – which is fine, but when they are together it’s a joy to watch.
“If you look at the games against Swansea and Southampton earlier on, we have been in control but not been able to kill teams off.”
The International break comes at an unfortunate time for the Young Whites, who would have wanted to kick on with their momentum.
He added: “When you’ve played as well as you have done on Saturday you always want to keep that momentum going. But we will keep working hard ready for the Brighton game.”
Hilton impressed many with his all-round performance on Saturday, not only with his hat-trick, but his creativity and work rate. The Head Coach has challenged to him to build on his tally.
“Sonny has been influential this year, not only as captain but as a player. His three-goal haul is something he is capable of doing and now he needs to try and contribute that more.”
Fulham will now face Brighton at the American Express Elite Performance Ground after the break looking to continue their fine form in front of goal.
