Derek Boateng Makes Fulham Debut In Pre-season Win Over Cartagines
By Ameenu Shardow
Ghana midfielder Derek Boateng made his Fulham debut in their 3-0 win over CS Cartagines in the English club?s first pre-season match on Sunday.
The 30-year-old signed for the Craven Cottage outfit as a free agent this summer to end a long-awaited arrival to the English Premier League.
The Ghana international made his Fulham debut when he came on as a second half substitute in the side?s 3-0 thrashing of their Costa Rican opponents.
Boateng came on to replace Georgios Karagounis in the game that saw Dimitar Berbatove hit a brace with local boy Bryan Ruiz scoring the other.
The Cottagers controlled pretty much the entire match played in the impressive Estadio Nacional de Costa Rica.
The English side will next face Alajuelense and Deportivo Saprissa before heading back to Europe to round of their pre-season activities.
