VIDEO: Matt Smith scores first Fulham goals in friendly match

Fulham Craven Cottage

The new Fulham striker scored twice in a behind closed doors friendly against the Saudi Arabian national team.

Matt Smith has scored his first two goals for Fulham since arriving at the club on transfer deadline day. 

The target-man centre-forward joined Fulham in a deal worth around £750,000 and he has wasted no time making an impression at his new club.

The striker scored twice in a behind-closed-doors friendly against the Saudi Arabian national side, as the Cottagers won 2-1. 

His first goal came via a fine header and he followed that up with a composed left-footed finish after capitalising on an error in the Saudi Arabian defence. 

It was a display of what he can offer to Fulham now he has completed a move there and why Elland Road fans were disappointed with his departure.

Smith presents a good option for any side to have up-front due to his side and, at the age of 25, he still has time to develop into a fine player.

He will link back up with another former Elland Road star at the London club in Ross McCormack and he will be looking to have a similar amount of success. 

McCormack and Smith formed a good partnership at their former club and they will be looking to do the same in their new surroundings.

The first chance supporters of the side may have to see them on display will be this weekend, when Felix Magath's side take on Reading.
