Fulham U18's lose a heartbreaker on penalty kicks in FA Youth Cup

Fulham lost on penalty kicks to Aston Villa last night at Craven Cottage in the FA Youth Cup Quarterfinals. At the end of regular time the game was tied 1 - 1. The game was then tied 2 - 2 after extra time leading to the penalty kicks.

Before the penalty kicks, the 2 Fulham goals were scored by Marcello Trotta. The Italian born striker scored in 39th minute and the 115th minute. Fulham were only able to score once on penalties out of four chances. Unfortunately it was not enough for Fulham's youth team as Aston Villa won on penalties and move on to the semifinals.
