Wolves defender Willy Boly made his first appearance of the season on international duty last night.
Boly’s native Ivory Coast took on Cameroon at home in the second round of CAF qualification for next summer’s World Cup.
Ivory Coast won the Group D clash 2-1, thanks to two goals from former West Ham striker Sebastien Haller.
That keeps them top of the group, ahead of last night’s opponents, having drawn 0-0 against Mozambique last week.
Boly started the match and got through 69 minutes before he was replaced by Sinaly Diomande.
Hopefully he came through it unscathed because that would be a major boost to Bruno Lage.
Boly was fit enough for a place on the bench last time out against Manchester United.
Last night was the next step in his comeback and hopefully that means he is ready to be involved against Watford this Saturday.
We wrote yesterday that Boly could give Lage’s defence a real shot in the arm after a tricky start to the season.
Hopefully, he’s fit to start against Watford but of course it’s also important that his comeback is managed carefully to avoid flare ups.
