Raul Jimenez is free to play for Wolves against Watford this afternoon.

Jimenez did not go on international duty with Mexico because of UK travel restrictions to red list countries.

That raised the prospect that he would miss the trip to Vicarage Road, an agreement has been reached, allowing him to play.

As per the Express and Star, Bruno Lage said: “It’s a good decision for everyone, especially for Mexico, that we can use Raul. The game is about putting the best players on the pitch.

“It’s difficult times, but at the same time the best players from both sides should be on the pitch. We’re very happy to receive that news and thankful for the decision.

“For the fans, for both clubs, it’s special to see the best players on the pitch. The club talked and we arrived at a good solution. It was the best decision for all and especially the fans.”

“The best thing for now is to see what happens in the next month. The federations will arrange a good solution for everyone. We have one month to understand what is going to happen and take the best decisions for us.”


Understandably, plenty of Wolves fans reacted to the news that the talisman has been passed fit to play.

Here’s how the announcement went down on Twitter:
