Fulham took the first step on a lengthy Europa League road with a comfortable 3-0 victory against the Faroese minnows NSIRunavik in Martin Jol’s first match at the helm.
Damien Duff, Danny Murphy and Andy Johnson scored the goals at Craven Cottage as the west Londoners sought to repeat their run to the final in 2010.
