**Fulham's extraordinary season took another twist as they secured their place in the semi-finals of the Europa League with a 1-0 win over Wolfsburg, rubberstamping his side's ticket into the UEFA Europa League semi-finals.
The powerful forward showed guile and composure in abundance to extend the visitors' aggregate margin to 3-1 at the VfL Wolfsburg Arena with less than 22 seconds on the clock.
Bobby Zamora found himself just inside the box with no defenders willing to make a tackle after the visitors played the ball forward, with Zoltan Gera finding Zamora in space.
Fulham could have easily extended their winning margin, however, with Simon Davies denied by Benaglio from close range before Danny Murphy's strike was cleared off the line by Andrea Barzagli.
Hangeland then scrambled back to clear Grafite's shot off the line after he reacted quickest to Dzeko's shot that had rebounded off a post.
