Some Fulham fans on social media have been raving over the performance of Neeskens Kebano in the Whites’ win over QPR in the FA Cup.
We named the Congolese winger named earlier this week as one of the players who could step up against the Cottagers’ west London rivals, and it’s fair to say that he did.
Kebano enjoyed a goalscoring return to action, almost three weeks since we last saw Fulham in action against Southampton.
The ex-Genk man took his finish very well, rifling an effort in at the near post, before capping off the goal with some questionable dance moves as he celebrated sealing Fulham’s spot in Round 4.
Kebano has been something of a forgotten man for Fulham this season, playing just in just two league games since September, but against QPR he showed exactly why he was handed a new two-year contract in the summer.
In contrast, the man who has often been keeping Kebano out of the starting XI, Ivan Cavaleiro, faltered in front of goal, squandering a glorious opportunity to put Fulham ahead in normal time, opting to play a pass instead of shooting at goal.
As you can imagine, some fans were calling fro Kebano to return to the starting XI after this game, and we can’t say we blame them at all.
Here’s what the Craven Cottage faithful have been saying about Kebano on social media…
Just don’t get why we don’t start Kebano over Cavaleiro.

Kebano has made such a difference in this game, he needs to get more game time in my opinion. #FFC
