We can still beat Juventus says Fulham boss Roy Hodgson
Etuhu's away goal gives Fulham hope of overturning the 3-1 first leg deficit
Fulham manager Roy Hodgson believes his side can still make the Europa League quarter-finals despite the 3-1 last-16 first leg loss to Juventus on Thursday.
The Italians dominated but Dickson Etuhu's away goal gives the Cottagers hope of overturning the deficit.
"It's not impossible. We're not out of it for sure," said Hodgson.
"I've seen stranger things happen in my career, so I am sure the players will be doing their very best to turn the game around in the second leg."
Fulham were behind in the Stadio Olimpico di Torino as early as the ninth minute, when Nicola Legrottaglie headed home from a corner.
A superb long-range drive from Jonathan Zebina midway through the first half and David Trezeguet's strike just before half time - in between which Etuhu struck for the visitors - gives Alberto Zaccheroni's side a healthy lead to carry into next Thursday's second leg at Craven Cottage.
Fulham have won plaudits this season for their performances in the Europa League, which has seen them claim impressive results against Basle and Roma and knock out holders Shakhtar Donetsk in the last 32.
Barring a spell in the first half, during which Etuhu claimed his goal, the Cottagers were second best against a strong Juve side.
"We showed for large parts of the game we were more than capable of matching them, but they have quality," former Inter Milan and Udinese boss Hodgson said.
"That was most evident of all in the fact that from very few possibilities, they have managed to put three in the back of the net.
