Gera celebrates goal of a lifetime

Published: Thursday 29 April 2010, 23.08CET
Fulham match-winner Zoltán Gera was over the moon after scoring the goal that sent Fulham FC to the UEFA Europa League final, saying: "It is the most important goal that I have ever scored. I am very, very happy. It was amazing. What can I say? We did so well, every single player." Mladen Petrić's brilliant free-kick put Hamburger SV ahead in the tie, but Simon Davies equalised before Gera got the winner. Welshman Davies said: "The manager said to us just keep playing your football and you will get your reward, and that's what we did. We have had to beat some tough teams and have come from behind a few times, but we stuck together and played our football."
