Wolverhampton Wanderers won their first game under Bruno Lage yesterday.

The team ran out 1-0 winners against Real Betis in Cadiz, with Patrick Cutrone scoring the game’s only goal.

The striker is expected to move on during this transfer window, but popped up to score the first goal of the Lage era, tucking away Nelson Semedo’s low cross.

It wasn’t a greta game, but a decent exercise nonetheless with lots of players getting minutes.

Like Semedo, Ruben Neves took to the field for the first time since coming back from the Euros.

Wolves had worried some supporters earlier this week by not initially publishing any photographs of him in training, amid speculation about his future.

Unfortunately, Willy Boly had to make way early doors with what seemed to be a hamstring issue.

Max Kilman replaced the Ivorian, and hopefully an encouraging update will arrive.

There were debuts for new signings Jose Sa and Yerson Mosquera.

Mosquera was handed 30 minutes or so, replacing Fernando Marcal.

His distribution was very good, and he didn’t give the Betis attackers much at all.

He showed aggression and grit, and it was certainly a massive positive to see such a showing from the 20-year-old after Boly had gone off injured.

On social media, fans raved about his performance:
