Everyone loves a football eye-catching moment.

No one can remember what happened to the cross delivered by Johann Cruyff after his famous turn - and in fact Denis Odoi's moment of magic, above, came to nothing.

But no matter.

it was a sublime piece of skill, and in the context of the game, all the more welcome to Fulham fans.

Whites were looking at a big defeat by the fallen Premier League giant.

Surely, bookies suggested, Magpies and their top-flight players would be too good for a side escaping relegation by the skin of their teeth just four months earlier?

Instead, Fulham and their newly acquired Belgian defender refused to go meekly into the dark night.

Deep into the second period, Odoi used his back to flick the ball over Dummett before running on and collecting in stride.

Needless to say, Sky cameras, watching the game live, repeated the moment ad nauseum, a bit like us, you might say.

In fact, Odoi later admitted this wasn’t really him, and the moment fought against natural instincts to be efficient and less showy.

A fab bit of flair was made all the better when Matt Smith rose just before half time to head the game’s only goal.
