Neeskens Kebano feels that his African Cup of Nations experience is helping him establish himself at Fulham.
The Congolese winger was a starter for his country as they reached the tournament’s quarter finals but has excelled in two appearances off the bench since returning to London. Kebano scored a last-gasp winner against Wigan Athletic on Saturday and, introduced as second half substitute tonight against Nottingham Forest, delivered another winning goal that keeps Fulham in touch with the Championship play-off places.
Kebano told BBC Radio London after his latest impressive cameo:
I came back from the African Nations Cup fit. I had some time there to play games and get fit. I could play for my country and when I came back I just wanted to do my best to help the team achieve all their goals. When the gaffer gave my the chance, I tried to do my best and give what I can give.
It is good [to be in a team of flair players]. They are very good players with big qualities so when I play with them I try to bring something new and something more special.
We know that it is a very good game. Everybody wants to play so I don’t know who is going to be on the field in that day, but I’m sure that all of my team-mates who are going to be on the pitch are going to give everything they can give and do their best. We are going to see that game and we all want to play in this game. I don’t know – that is the choice of the gaffer.
