Neil Etheridge finally tastes victory in the English Premier League
Philippine Azkals goalkeeper Neil Etheridge enjoyed his first English Premier League win Saturday, after his Cardiff City FC club dominated his former club Fulham, 4-2 at the Cardiff City Stadium for their first three points of the season.
Andre Schurlle put Fulham ahead first in the eleventh minute, but it didn't take long for Cardiff City to respond, courtesy of an equalizer from Josh Murphy in the 15th minute.
Soon, it was Cardiff City who went ahead with Bobby Reid hitting in the 20th minute for the 2-1 advantage.
Ryan Sessegnon found an equalizer of his own in the 34th minute to help bring Fulham even before halftime.
It was all Cardiff City in the second half, as Callum Peterson and Kadeem Harris each converted to double The Bluebirds' advantage.
