Jon Dagur Thorsteinsson
A goal in either half from Mikolaj Kwietniewski and Jon Dagur Thorsteinsson earned Fulham Under-18s a 2-0 win at Aston Villa on Saturday.
The hosts started well and went close to opening the scoring when Jake Doyle-Hayes’ shot was cleared off the line, but it was the visitors who broke the deadlock midway through the first half when Kwietniewski applied the finishing touch to a slick counter attack.
Villa goalkeeper Emmanuel Idem enjoyed a good match between the sticks, making a number of impressive saves to keep the Whites at bay, but there was nothing he could do about Thorsteinsson’s penalty in the 68th minute.
The closest the hosts went to pulling one back came through substitute Aaron Presley but he was denied by Fulham ‘keeper Taye Ashby-Hammond
