‘8/10’: National media rave about £12m Fulham player on international duty


‘8/10’: National media rave about £12m Fulham player on international duty

Why Chelsea FINALLY Turned A Corner.

Fulham winger Harry Wilson was one of the stars of the show for Wales as they defeated Latvia last night.

The Welsh media were very impressed with the 26-year-old as he kept Rob Page’s side’s faint hopes of qualification alive.

Plenty of Fulham players have been in action during the international break.

Marco Silva will be praying everyone comes back fully fit with a huge game against Luton Town on the horizon on Saturday.

He’ll also be hoping Joao Palhinha returns with a clear mind after missing out on a deadline day move to Bayern Munich.

The Portuguese was left out against Manchester City before joining up with the national team.

Another player who Fulham will be glad impressed on international duty was Wales’s Harry Wilson.

The winger is a key man for Rob Page and created chance after chance yesterday.

He got an assist for David Brooks in the final moments with his teammates failing to convert several dangerous crosses.

He now returns to Craven Cottage hoping to retain his place in the side.

Fulham winger Wilson stars for Wales

Wales Online gave Wilson an eight out of 10 and said: “Another bright performance to back up his display against Korea Republic last Thursday.

“Won the penalty in the first half and forged a number of chances for himself. Produced a wonderful assist for Brooks.”

Pundit Feed also gave him an eight which was their highest rating and added: “Assisted in the second goal and was a creative force.”

The £12m winger was in and out of the team last season after Marco Silva brought in several wingers.

After being instrumental to Fulham’s promotion to the Premier League in his first season, an injury picked up just as the season started scuppered his entire campaign.

Wilson has now had a full pre-season and appears to have benefitted from it, looking sharp in the opening games of the season.

He also scored an absolute stunner against Brentford during pre-season in the United States.

Wales will hope Wilson can retain his place in the Fulham team as many of his international teammates are currently sitting on the bench at their clubs.

An opening goal of the season against Luton Town on Saturday would be very welcome indeed.
