London Premier League side Fulham has progressed to the third round of qualifying for the second-tier Europa League football competition.

Fulham now line up against Croatians Split in late July and early August with the winning teams joining the losers from the Champions League third qualifying round in the play-offs for the UEFA Europa League group stage.

All White Winston Reid's old Danish side FC Midtjylland also progressed after an 8-3 aggregate victory over Welsh side The New Saints.

The likes of Spanish side Atletico Madrid also join the Europa League qualifying process from the third round.
