Hodgson 'on top of the world'

Published: Thursday 18 March 2010, 23.01CET
Fulham FC manager Roy Hodgson was thrilled by his side's comeback to beat Juventus 4-1 and reach the UEFA Europa League quarter-finals 5-4 on aggregate. "I'm on top of the world," he said. "I don't know if it is the biggest night in the club's history but it must come close." Clint Dempsey clinched victory with a superb late chip and told ESPN: "I just thought, what the heck and tried to put it in the far post and it went in. Nine times out of 10 you won't make it but sometimes you've got to take a risk."
