Willy Boly was the only Wolves player in senior international action on Friday.
Boly helped the Ivory Coast keep a clean sheet in their 3-0 win over Malawi in World Cup qualification.
The win keeps Boly’s men on top of their qualification group with half the six matches played.
Boly played in a 3-4-3 system which mirrors the formation Bruno Lage uses at Molineux.
He put in a commanding performance in that back three, as the Ivorians dominated throughout.
Boly has only played 90 minutes this season for Wolves, in their EFL Cup exit at the hands of Tottenham.
He is yet to play a single Premier League minute, with Lage sticking with Max Kilman, Conor Coady and Romain Saiss.
At some stage, Lage will likely turn to Boly to offer his commanding presence at the back.
And performances like yesterday’s represent the best thing he can do as he continues to try and catch Lage’s eye.
