Nigeria born England junior international, Joshua Onomah, was in action for 110 minutes on Tuesday night as Fulham overcame Brentford in Championship play-off for a return to the English premier league.
The hard-fighting midfielder and his teammates battled Brentford to a standstill at the Wimbley.
It was one tie in which goals were very hard to come by, but two quick goals after extra time by fulham’s Joe Bryan did the magic. An equally extra-time goal scored by Brentford’s Henrik Dalsgaard was not enough to turn the table as Fulham moved on with a 2-1 victory. Onomah who joined Fulham last year is luckily heading into the premier league less than a year after the move.
An elated Fulham coach Scott Parker is confident that Fulham will learn the lessons of their Premier League failure in 2018-19 after securing a return to the top flight.
“There were some clear errors made last time,” said the ex-England midfielder. “We will learn from that. We need to learn from that.
“We’re going into the best league in the world, the best players, the best teams… it’s a brutal league and I realise the challenge ahead,” he said.
Brentford, who have not played in the top flight since 1947, have now had nine unsuccessful play-off campaigns in their history without winning promotion.
Head coach Thomas Frank said: “The sun will rise again tomorrow. It is not the end of the world. Of course I’ll be very sad tonight and disappointed, but that’s the way it is.
