Fulham's Emerson Hyndman praised after American scores winner

Emerson Hyndman, left, scored Fulham's late winner against Cardiff on Saturday.

Fulham manager Slavisa Jokanovic said Emerson Hyndman is worthy of more playing time after the U.S. international scored a late winner on his birthday against Cardiff on Saturday.

Deep into stoppage time, Cardiff failed to clear the ball following a corner kick and Hyndman finished off a scramble in the visitors' penalty area as Fulham won 2-1.

The goal was Hyndman's first of the season in just his seventh start, and Jokanovic said he regretted not getting Hyndman into more games.

"Today is his birthday. It's a great present for himself and for all of us in the last moment of the game," the manager said of the American.

"He's probably one of the more talented players. I am little bit disappointed with myself that I haven't found more minutes for him this season.

"He probably needs to be a little bit stronger for the Championship. But he's a young guy and he will be a very good footballer for us."

Hyndman, who turned 20 on Saturday, was the U.S. captain at the Under-20 World Cup last year and also featured for the under-23 team that failed to qualify for the Olympics last month.

He made his only appearance for the U.S. senior team in 2014.
