Wolverhampton Wanderers drew 3-3 with SC Braga in the Europa League on Thursday and Raul Jimenez had a hand in every goal on the night. The 28-year-old scored one and made two assists at the Braga Municipal Stadium, resulting in him being lauded by supporters on social media.

After André Horta gave Braga the lead with a sixth-minute deflected effort, Wolves equalised through Jimenez heading home a brilliant cross from Jonny in the 13th minute.

The Mexican international then turned provider as Wolves took the lead after half an hour. Jimenez chipped a through ball to Matt Doherty who headed home. One minute later, Adama Traore collected the ball from Jimenez and fired home from the edge of the area to make it 3-1.

Paulinho pulled a goal back for Braga after converting a Wenderson Galeno cross in the 64th minute before Fransergio completed the comeback in the 79th minute, heading home a cross from Nuno Sequeira. Despite the result, Wolves still booked their place in the last-32 of the Europa League.
