We are very happy with the win,” Maja told journalists after the encounter.
“We took our chances when it came and put in another good performance again, we want to continue like this. For the whole 90 minutes, the guys worked hard and stuck to the game plan.
“This is a night I have been dreaming about for a long time, especially last night and I had a feeling it was coming and pleased it became a reality. “Wins give the fans and players confidence and we want to take it into the next game.”
Fulham manager Parker has also praised Maja, describing his performance for his side against Everton as ‘fantastic’.
