Aaron Hughes is hoping for another big European night like Fulham's trip to Rome

It might be dangerous but Aaron Hughes of already dreaming of another plum European tie should Fulham get past Shakhtar Donetsk on Thursday.

Roy Hodgson’s side take a 2-1 lead to Ukraine for the second leg this week and Hughes has his eye on a last 16 meeting with the winners of the contest between Juventus and Ajax.

We know we’ve got Ajax or Juventus in the next round, so it’s a nice incentive. That’s what European games are all about.

It’s a chance to come up against some big sides. They’re two big names in European football, so either will be fantastic.

First, though, Fulham face the far-from-straightforward task of finishing the job against the last winners of the UEFA Cup.
