Kelly says Fulham can again shock Europe

Stephen Kelly feels Fulham can again shock Europe in next season's Europa League.

The Whites coped well with juggling the demands of domestic and Europa League action last time out and with many of the 09/10 squad still present, the experience gained is bound to be beneficial.

"I think it's pretty much the same squad from the time when we got to the final," Kelly recalled to fulhamfc.com. "We all played a massive part in that campaign so we are all hopeful and wishful that we can do that again because it is a tough thing to achieve, but as I said the experience is there from players that have already done that and achieved that and it's something that, as a team, we would expect to have a good go at!

"I don't think anybody expected what happened last time, I think the big one was the Juventus game because that really projected Fulham as a club onto the worldwide stage. To come back and win that game in the style that we did really made people think: 'God, they're a good football team, they're a good club, they've got some pretty talented players and they're capable of achieving good things, especially against world giants like Juventus.'
