The home side took the lead in the 32nd minute when Clint Dempsey headed home superbly from Ruiz's cross to give Jussi Jääskeläinen no chance.

Just 66 seconds later, Fulham doubled their advantage thanks to a moment of magic from Ruiz.

It seemed for a moment that the Costa Rican had lost the ball under his feet, but what followed was truly outstanding.

Ruiz paused and effortlessly lobbed the ball over Jääskeläinen's head and into the goal, the ball looping in beautifully.
