Adama Traore came away with praise from supporters after the part he played in Wolves beating Southampton on Saturday. The 23-year-old assisted two of the three goals Wolves scored to overturn a 2-0 deficit and come away with the win.
After charging down the right flank, Traore cross met Pedro Neto who controlled the ball and volleyed into the back of the net for 2-1. A Raul Jimenez penalty then made it 2-2. Traore beat the offside trap and was put through on goal, but he slowed down and cut the ball for Jimenez to fire home inside the area.
Traore is filth though. He should be in one of the Lock Stock films.

Traore was a constant threat all day and delivered when it mattered – twice. More explosive than a Trump tweet #wwfc
