VIDEO: Watford’s Doucoure smashes thunderbolt v. Fulham

VHiqWFzhBGvd
Watford's Abdoulaye Doucoure dribbles into the box and strikes a powerful shot with his left foot that finds the back of the net to open the scoring against Fulham.

Watford star Abdoulaye Doucoure sent Fulham to the welcome mat of relegation with a thunderbolt goal Tuesday at Vicarage Road (even if the visitors responded before halftime).

Fulham will drop to the Championship if it cannot manage at least a point and really anything other than a win would all-but seal its fate due to lousy goal differential.

Doucoure put the Cottagers on the precipice with this venomous strike, which left goalkeeper Sergio Rico clawing at air. It’s the 26-year-old’s fifth goal of the season to go with six assists.

Fortunately for Fulham, it restored level terms when Ryan Babel took a pass from Ryan Sessegnon and beat Ben Foster in the 33rd minute.
