A sensational second half performance from Portuguese international goalkeeper Rui Patricio took Wolverhampton Wanderers to Premier League Asia Cup success over Manchester City.

Having dispatched Newcastle United in the previous game, the game ended goalless at the end of normal time and despite suffering a deep cut to the face that led to a long injury stoppage, the 31-year-old saved three of City’s five penalties to give us a 3-2 victory.

Our goals in the shoot out came from Ryan Bennett, Taylor Perry and Ruben Vinagre.
