This summer, the likes of Chris David, Buomesca Tue Na Bangna, Muamer Tankovic, Lasse Vigen Christensen, Jesse Joronen and Jack Grimmer have all spent time in and around the First Team squad.
"Those boys have come up over the summer, and they did very well,” Hangeland told fulhamfc.com. “A few of them came away with the senior squad to Costa Rica, and more have trained with us throughout the summer and continue to do so.
“I’ve been impressed with them, they’ve conducted themselves very well and they all show a lot of promise. Alexander Kačaniklić, Matthew Briggs, Neil Etheridge, Kerim Frei and Marcello Trotta have already made the step up, and now we want to see a few more do the same.
“I watch the Under-21 and U18 games at Motspur Park when I can, and there are a lot of good players coming through. If you look at the U21 squad, a lot of those boys were part of the U18 side that won the national title for the past two years."
