Wolves fans react with glee to Rui Patricio World Cup heroics

Wolves fans are ecstatic with their new signing.

Portugal picked up a 1-0 win against Morocco this afternoon, helping them in their bid to qualify for the next round of the World Cup. The result sends Morocco out of the competition but it was, on the balance of play, not a fair result. Morocco were excellent throughout the game but could not find the back of the net.

Some of that was down to an ineptitude in the attacking third but Morocco also found themselves up against a goalkeeper in brilliant form. That goalkeeper will be playing in the Premier League next season with Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Wolves recently snapped up the signature of Rui Patricio from Sporting Lisbon. In a controversial deal, which saw Patricio resign from the Portuguese club, Wolves finally brought the much-sought-after stopper to English football.

Based on the evidence displayed against Morocco, Wolves have signed a star.

Patricio made an exceptional save to keep Morocco at bay, which certainly had shades of Gordon Banks’ brilliant save from Pele in 1970.

Wolves fans are therefore overjoyed with the new arrival and could not contain their excitement on Twitter…
