Ex-Liverpool kid Callum Lang justified Everton’s summer interest with FA Cup masterclass

Callum Lang scored a late winner to dump Premier League Fulham out of the FA Cup.

Callum Lang scored a late winner to help Oldham Athletic deliver an FA Cup upset away at Premier League side Fulham.

At Craven Cottage on Sunday, Oldham trailed Fulham until the 76th minute.

Sam Surridge levelled from the penalty spot to set up a close finale but Oldham looked to have blown it when Fulham won a penalty of their own.

However, Daniel Iversen stepped up and produced a heroic save to deny Aleksandar Mitrovic.

And Oldham went up the other end as Callum Lang headed in an 88th minute winner to stun the Cottagers.

Lang further added to his growing reputation as one of the finest young players in League Two.

 

He is on loan at Oldham from Wigan Atheltic after scoring 10 goals in 30 games for Morecambe last season.

And this term, the 20-year-old has bagged eight goals in 30 games – all of which have come in the last 20.

Playing on either flank or through the middle, the Liverpool-born starlet has been a constant threat for the Latics this season.

Last summer, Everton were interested in signing Lang, according to ESPN.

And yesterday’s FA Cup heroics – as well as his other recent performances – really justifies that interest.

Everton might be tempted to move for the former Liverpool schoolboy again this month, or next summer.
