Wolves earned their second point of the 2019/20 campaign after a 1-1 draw with Manchester United at Molineux.
Anthony Martial gave the visitors the advantage at the interval but a stunning Ruben Neves strike earned a share of the spoils.
Nuno Espirito Santo’s men might have lost the game. Paul Pogba saw a second-half penalty saved by Rui Patricio.
The talking point was perhaps the introduction of Adama Traore at the break. He replaced the injured Matt Doherty and immediately put United on the back foot.
Neves’ goal naturally grabbed the headlines, however, and rightly so. His breathtaking goal will certainly be seen again when the Goal of the Season compilation is released in May.
The Portuguese midfielder signed for Wolves in 2017 for £16 million from Porto (BBC Sport).
He is a master of his trade when it comes to scoring long-range efforts and Wolves will hope to see more of last night’s ability over the course of the campaign.
Neves is paid £50,000-a-week at Molineux and is a vitally important member of the Wolves squad. Indeed, the 22-year-old could play for one of Europe’s elite at some point during his career.
Following his goal last night, Twitter was awash with Wolves fans who were buzzing with his goal.
Here is a selection of those tweets:
What a strike, what a player, what a team. Let’s get it. A draw against united not bad
