The 20-year-old midfielder came onto the pitch in the 76th minute replacing Joe Bryan in Fulham's 2-0 loss to Newcastle United.

He could do little to change the result, it was one way traffic to Newcastle for the latter stages of the second half, as Fulham slumped to their 20th loss of the campaign despite registering more shots on goal.

Francois, who hails from Campbelltown, has been part of the Fulham academy since his family relocated to London in 2013. 

He made his professional debut for the club in the EFL Cup in 2019, but may find himself with a lot more opportunities next season given Fulham's relegation this season.

Francois was also called up to the Olyroos squad for four friendlies in Spain next month, where he's in line to play against the Republic of Ireland, Saudi Arabia, Mexico and Romania.

The Cottagers, alongside West Brom and Sheffield United, wrapped up the EPL's earliest relegation lock in this season. They sit in 18th place, 11 points shy of safe Burnley.
