Jose Sa made one save first. But Henderson then denied Ruben Neves, and then Joe Hodge, who took Wolves’ fifth kick.

The youngster needed to score to keep it alive, but Henderson guessed correctly diving to his right.

Lopetegui praised Hodge after the game for showing character and commitment.

During the penalties, Morgan Gibbs-White infuriated the away fans when he put his fingers in his ears after scoring.

The midfielder, who left Molineux last summer, is now deeply unpopular with a lot of Wolves fans, who did not appreciate the disrespectful gesture.

After Gibbs-White’s antics, Cunha stepped up for Wolves and scored. He then faced the Forest fans and mimicked Gibbs-White’s gesture.


Supposedly, this was what fueled the brawl that occurred after the shootout.

Cunha took to Instagram after the game to post a 16-word message of defiance. He said: “We fight like a pack, for our wonderful fans. It always needs to be like this.”

It was actually great to see him pull that gesture after Gibbs-White, and you could see how much the Wolves fans at the City Ground loved it.

He is already talking about fighting like a pack on Instagram, and on gets the feeling he’s going to be a very popular figure.
