USMNT Midfielder Luca De La Torre Scores First Fulham Goal And Adds Two Assists

De La Torre was inspirational in Fulham’s 3-1 win over Millwall on Tuesday in the League Cup.

Twenty-year-old American midfielder Luca de la Torre — a native of San Diego, California — scored his first competitive goal for Fulham on Tuesday in the Cottagers' 3-1 win over Millwall in the League Cup. Not only did De La Torre bag Fulham’s second of the day, he also assisted Joe Bryan on the first and Cyrus Christie (#COYBIG) on the third.

Here’s his first for the club. 

And here’s his assist for the first after some nifty footwork.

And here’s his second assist (although we’ll give the majority of the props to Christie for the finish).

Unleashed in the No. 10 role, De La Torre was a revelation in sending Fulham through to the Round of 16, but don’t take my word for it. Let’s go to the Twittersphere. 

De La Torre has been in the Fulham youth setup since 2013. Last season, he made five appearances in the Championship while also making his USMNT debut last June in a friendly against Ireland.   

All in all, it’s been a great week for Fulhamerica, which welcomed the recently retired Clint Dempsey back to Craven Cottage over the weekend.

Also of note from Tuesday's match is that Harvey Elliott appeared in the 81st minute. Harvey Elliott is 15.

Harvey Elliott also has a preposterous topknot, which makes him the most exciting talent on the planet.
