Late joy for Slovakia U21's!

The international break is almost over and it's been a memorable one for several players, non more so than Fulham's young goalkeeper Marek Rodak. The 21 year-old isn't one of the most well known members of the Cottagers' playing squad, with him currently out on a season-long loan with Championship side Rotherham United. It's the second successive season that he's spent the campaign on loan with the Millers were he's highly rated and he's started all 6 of their games in the second tier so far.

On Tuesday night he took a break from domestic proceedings to be in action for Slovakia's U21's, with them in the thick of their qualifying campaign for the upcoming European Championships. They made the trip to Reykjavik to take on Iceland U21's in a big game for their hopes of making it to the 2019 Championships in Italy & San Marino and it was a rollercoaster of a game.

After going behind, they fought back to go 2-1 up with just minutes remaining on the clock and looking like they'd hang on. But then three minutes into injury time Iceland struck back to make it 2-2 with a penalty kick - it was a tough one to take and looked like they'd dropped 2 points. But step forward Rodak. Coming up from a corner, the big 6 foot 4 keeper got on his head on the end of a cross to score and send his teammates into raptures, running to halfway and elatedly celebrating. They now know that if they win their remaining 2 games they will go through along with group winners Spain - so Rodak is certainly a hero!
