‘World-class’: Some Wolves fans blown away by display of player taken ‘for granted’

A number of Wolverhampton Wanderers fans have been raving about Willy Boly’s display in Thursday night’s Europa League last-32 first-leg rout of Espanyol at Molineux.

Nuno Espirito Santo’s charges were simply unstoppable on the night as they put four past their beleaguered visitors, Diogo Jota smashing home his second consecutive European hat-trick and Ruben Neves scoring a sensational volley.

Jota opened the scoring in the 15th minute against Espanyol, who are bottom of La Liga with just four league wins all season and had made widescale changes for the game, with a volley from Raul Jimenez’s flick-on.

Wolves nonetheless lived dangerously as the visitors threatened on occasion, but then came the superb second of the game as a half-cleared ball fell to Neves, who controlled with his chest and let rip with a 25-yard volley.

From then on it was one-way traffic as Matt Doherty and Leander Dendoncker combined to set up Jota, who held off Victor Gomez to drill home in the 67th minute, and the cherry on top came nine minutes from time, Jota rifling a low shot home from the edge of the box.

While Jota understandably took home the match ball with his treble and Neves delivered a moment of magic with his thunderbolt, two duo getting most of the plaudits, there was also a lot of praise sent the way of the defence, and since Boly’s return, Wolves have kept three consecutive clean sheets.

One moment in particular stood out for the 29-year-old – Matias Vargas tried to get past the big defender, only for him to casually nab the ball away from the Argentine, cool as you like, and set Wolves on their way.

Here is what some fans said about Boly’s heroics:
