Luca de la Torre picked a great day to make an impression. The 20-year-old midfielder scored a goal and assisted on two others as Fulham defeated Millwall FC 3-1 in the 3rd round of the Carabao Cup.

Fulham opened up their scoring account in the 7th minute, as de la Torre assisted Joe Bryan for the match’s first goal.

The score remained 1-0 until the 52nd minute, when de la Torre decided to put his name on the scoresheet. He received a low cross into the box, collecting it around the penalty and then hammering it home to make it 2-0 Fulham.

Milwall cut into the deficit, making it 2-1 in the 61st minute. Still, just 7 minutes later, de la Torre made an impact once again, serving up Cyrus Christie for Fulham’s 3rd goal. Luca de la Torre was subbed off in the 85th minute, and the 3-1 score would hold as Fulham advanced in the Carabao Cup.

It was de la Torre’s 2nd appearance of the season for Fulham, having also appeared in a League Cup match this year. He had appeared twice for the Fulham U-23s before getting the start today in League Cup action. He was involved in every single goal for The Cottagers, and made an impact throughout the match.

We certainly enjoyed that! Hopefully, this leads to more opportunities for Luca de la Torre to appear on the first team and a boost in confidence for the youngster moving forward.
