Bjorn Helge Riise is keen to get another glamour tie in the last 32 of the Europa League when the draw takes place on Friday lunchtime.

Fulham’s Norwegian winger was outstanding in the 3-2 win over Basel last night, supplying two goals with splendid crosses for Bobby Zamora. He might have had laid on a third had substitute Clint Dempsey been a little more clinical in front of goal. There was obvious delight in the Fulham camp afterwards.

It feels very good. We stuck in there and we knew if we played like we have in the last couple of weeks we could go through.

It was a difficult second half when they pushed everyone forward but we managed to cope with that as well. I just hope we get a good team in the knockout stages.

It was tense and the atmosphere was excellent. I know Basel from when my brother played at Liverpool and Basel have a very good home record.

We played very well today to get three points and go to the knockout stage. Bring it on with good teams!
