Fulhamerica is alive, at least for a day. What a critical day it may end up being for the Craven Cottage set.

U.S. prospect Emerson Hyndman buried a stoppage time goal to give the Cottagers an upset with over visiting Cardiff City on Saturday.

The three points move Fulham 10 points clear of the drop with five matches to play in the English Championship.

From FulhamFC.com, here’s Cottagers boss Slaviša Jokanović:

“Today it was Emerson’s birthday so he has had a great present for himself and for all of us.

“He is probably one of our most talented players. I am a little bit disappointed in myself for not finding more minutes for him this year.

“I believe in front of him he has a brilliant future and he is a very talented player. He is quality on the ball. I believe in the future he can be a very important player for us.”

Hyndman is expected to leave Fulham for greener pastures in the summer, but this is a fine memory to leave his fans.

The 20-year-old midfielder has one cap for the USMNT, and has made more than 20 appearances for Fulham since leaving FC Dallas in 2011.
