Wolverhampton Wanderers earned a 1-1 away draw against Olympiacos on Thursday night – and some of the club’s fans on Twitter praised their wide man Pedro Neto for his performance.
Wolves picked up a vital away goal in their draw during the first leg of a Europa League last 16 and will now return to Molineux next week for the second leg with a slight advantage.
Greek hosts Olympiacos were down to 10 men inside the opening half an hour, as Ruben Semedo was shown a straight red card for his challenge on Diogo Jota.
Olympiacos took a surprise lead early in the second-half through Youssef El-Arabi, but the visitors did respond through Neto’s deflected effort from range after a free-kick routine.
Neto was introduced as a half-time substitute for the Premier League outfit and he made a bright impact on the game.
The 20-year-old winger injected some real pace and directness to his team, plus his powerful effort turned out to be a decisive equaliser.
He’s not been a regular starter in Nuno Espirito Santo’s side this season, but is now up to four goals and four assists across all competition to prove he’s a real star in the making.
A selection of Wolves supporters on social media were impressed by Neto for his contribution despite the team not quiet being at their fluent best.
Here are some Wolves fans on Neto:
Neto’s movement for a young lad with not too many games behind him is fantastic. The lad is going to be a superstar. #wwfc

Dreadful game. Grew into it but lacked any kind of rhythm or imagination throughout. Disappointing against 10 men but got the vital away goal. Fancy us at home. Neto lively, Vinagre poor for the third game in a row. When’s Johnny back!? #wwfc
