Lots of Wolverhampton Wanderers fans have reacted on Twitter after the club managed to progress through the first round of the #UltimateQuaranTeam competition.
With the UK being set under further stringent measures due to the coronavirus outbreak, it is hard to envisage exactly when football will return to our screens, even with the official return date meant to be on April 30.
However, with football clubs scratching around to give their fans enjoyable content, Leyton Orient came up with the idea of this competition – a straight knockout contest with 128 teams from across the world.
Wolves had their first match in the competition yesterday and they managed to overcome Adelaide United from Australia.
This means that the dream continues – and they have been drawn the almighty Sligo Rovers from Ireland in the next round of the competition.
How should the season end?
Totally void the entire season
Finish with the current table
Try and complete it in the summer
They (well, Wolves’ e-sports player Flavio) managed to beat Adelaide 2-1, meaning that there is some hope for silverware during these difficult times.
Fans were seemingly happy with the result – and one was even pleasantly surprised to see that a goal from Ruben Neves inside the box was the difference between the two sides.
Here is what fans are saying about it below…
My dad (Grenville Riley) played for both clubs – Wolves (as understudy to Peter Knowles) before leaving to play for Sligo, back in the late 60’s. He will be pleased about this tie!
