Babel delighted to prove Fulham matchwinner

Ryan Babel was delighted to prove Fulham's matchwinner in victory over Cardiff City.

The Dutchman hit a fierce, curling drive from 25 yards which flew into the top corner to secure a 1-0 win for the hosts at Craven Cottage.

"It's one I will definitely put in my top five, that's for sure," Babel told the club's official website.

"To be honest I played the ball slightly too hard. I wanted to hit it with the inside of my foot but because the ball was so hard I risked it with my laces and it was the perfect hit."
