Wolves winger Pedro Neto had an international debut to remember, scoring for Portugal in a 7-0 drubbing of Andorra at the Estadio da Luz.

The 20-year-old was recently called up to the senior squad for the first time by Fernando Santos, and was handed a start against the 145th-ranked team in the world according to FIFA.

It did not take Neto long to make an impact – the star lashing home on eight minutes after a nice knockdown in the box by FC Porto star Sergio Oliviera.

It was superb technique from Neto, his left-foot shot rifling beyond Josep Gomes and in off the crossbar.

It was then an onslaught from the hosts, with Paulinho (2), Renato Sanches, Cristiano Ronaldo and Joao Felix all scoring, with an own goal in there from Emili Garcia.

Neto played the first-half before being substituted by Santos at the break, and he will hope to get some more involvement in the upcoming Nations League matches against world champions France and 2018 World Cup runners-up Croatia.

It was a lovely moment for the starlet, whose career is going from strength to strength at the moment.

Neto has arguably been Wolves’ best player in 2020/21 and has started every league game, and he was recently handed a new contract at Molineux as a reward for his great performances.

The star took to Instagram to express his pride about his first international goal, with Ruben Vinagre – currently on loan at Olympiacos – showing his support in the comments:
