JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -

Fulham's preparations for the new season were boosted by a comfortable victory over DC United, with youngster Moussa Dembele netting a hat trick in Jacksonville.

The French Under 18 international opening the scoring on 22 minutes when his run was picked out by Chris David, before the frontman lifted the ball beyond the onrushing Andrew Dykstra.

A minute before the half-time break, Dembele doubled the Cottagers' advantage as Bobby Boswell failed to clear the danger for United and the teenager pounced from six yards out.

Fulham's young forward added a third on 75 minutes when he was afforded space on the edge of the DC penalty area and the forward duly took advantage by finding the corner of the net.

The Londoners start their Championship campaign away to Ipswich Town on August 9.
