Wolverhampton Wanderers signed off their pre-season campaign with victory over Spanish side Villarreal CF at the Molineux on Saturday.

Hosting the La Liga side at the ground for our final warm-up match ahead of next weekend’s Premier League kick-off, goals from Willy Boly and Raul Jimenez earned us the win, but it was far from plain sailing as we had to battle back from a goal behind – but that in itself will only help confidence.

2-1 was how it finished, but the win could’ve been greater though had Ruben Neves not missed the opportunity to level the scores up from the penalty spot – nobody’s perfect eh!

All eyes to Everton now and with a good week of training and plenty of solid preparation, we will no doubt be hoping to make our top-flight return bow in fantastic style and preferably all three points from the get-go as we announce ourselves back on the top stage of English football.


Patricio, Doherty, Neves, Jimenez (Bonatini 72), Costa, Boly, Coady, Jota (Cavaleiro 77), Otto, Saiss (Bennett 46), Moutinho (Gibbs-White 72).
