Classy Cottagers cruise to Euro win

Zamora, who has rejected a move to Hull this summer, scored the opener, won a penalty converted by Danny Murphy and set up the third for substitute Seol Ki-Hyeon.

Making their first appearance in Europe since 2002, Fulham are now excellently positioned to progress from the third qualifying round with the second leg staged at Craven Cottage next Thursday.

Occasionally showing the strain of beginning their season in July, Fulham were loose in defence at times and lacked bite in midfield for the opening half hour.

The hot conditions did not help but, having settled, they comprehensively outplayed the Lithuanian club, who finished third in the A Lyga last season.
