Martin Jol said Robbie Keane's two fantastic volleys made the difference as we beat Fulham 4-0 on Sunday to progress into the quarter-finals of the FA Cup.

Skipper on the day, Robbie fired home from Mido's flick to hand us the perfect start at Craven Cottage after just six minutes before a carbon copy of the goal after 68 minutes with, if anything, an even better finish as he allowed Mido's flick to drop over his right shoulder before volleying home on the full.

Dimitar Berbatov made it an afternoon to remember with two clinically-taken goals after coming on as a substitute for Mido in the 73rd minute.

"The first two goals came from two flick-ons by Mido, they were simple but that's how you can score goals as well," said Martin afterwards. "The first goal was great, quick and that's what we said beforehand - we wanted to score early.

"I thought we did very well and defended well. We lost the initiative in the second half but luckily enough we scored the second goal with Mido and Robbie combining again.

"They were brilliant strikes from Robbie and that was the difference. He's a quality player.

"Mido came in because they had six big guys who are dangerous from set-pieces and he showed me that he wants to play for us and do the business."
