Fulham boss Jol admits being underdone for Euro clash with NSI Runavik

Fulham boss Martin Jol admits his players are unlikely to be fully ready for their Europa League qualifier against NSI Runavik.

The first qualifying round tie will be the Dutch manager's first match in charge.

Jol said: "It's not ideal but it's the second or third time Fulham are in Europe through the Fair Play league.

"We'll treat it like a friendly with a serious touch."

NSI are Faroe Islands part-timers from a town with a population under 4,000.

Jol added: "I was talking to a friend who said they were from the Falklands Isles. I said 'No, it's even smaller than that'.

"We have to play eight or nine games in June and July. Usually we play seven or eight pre-season games so it's no problem."
