Danny Murphy says the whole country will be willing Fulham to win the Europa League tonight.

The Fulham captain says the squad have received good luck messages from his former Liverpool team-mates, Premier League managers and even Chelsea skipper John Terry.

I think the whole country wants us to win. Fulham are kind of everybody’s second favourite club because of our spirit. We’ve overcome the odds and beaten so many good teams.

I think supporters appreciate good football and we’ve certainly tried to play the right way. It’s nice to have the encouragement because it gives you the extra incentive to take the trophy home.

It will be a proud and emotional moment for me to lead this team out in the final. It means a lot.

These two years have been the best of my career. I take captaincy very seriously. Although we have made history by getting here and will be remembered forever, we are not just here to make up the numbers.
