Francisco Trincao got off the mark for Wolves in the 4-0 drubbing of Nottingham Forest on Tuesday night.
Bruno Lage’s side made a mockery of the tight turnaround time between matches to record an easy win.
He will hope that the victory can provide a springboard for the season ahead as well as some confidence.
That applies to the team, as well as Trincao, who has struggled to impact his first two Premier League games.
Having scored his first goal, Trincao thanked the fans for their support in the away end.
Trincao might require some more patience while he adjusts to English football in his first season here.
But the supporters seem behind him and so are his teammates, with Jose Sa and Ki-Jana Hoever sending messages of congralulations.
Barcelona teammate Samuel Umtiti also reacted, along with loanee Patrick Cutrone, whose message translates as ‘nice brother’.
Cutrone and Trincao weren’t teammates for long but they clearly established a friendship.
Cutrone is now out on loan at Empoli, where he will be hoping to make an impact.
Trincao will hope to do the same in England and next up are Manchester United.
With Trincao and Wolves finally in the goals, that game is one to be approached with excitement.
