Hangeland thrilled to be back in winning Fulham side

Fulham captain Brede Hangeland was absolutely delighted to mark his return from injury with an impressive victory in the FA Cup on Tuesday night.

The Norwegian centre-half has been sidelined since sustaining a back injury in October but resumed in the Cottagers line-up to lead the southwest Londoners to a 3-0 win over Norwich City in the third round of the cup competition.

"It's nice to be back." Hangeland told VG.

"It has been a tough time I have gone through, since I haven't been injured much in the past.

"Therefore, it felt particularly good to put on the jersey. I am now looking forward to assisting club and country."
