Wolverhampton Wanderers striker Rafa Mir has been described as a ‘complete striker’ by an outlet in Spain.

The 23-year-old was the subject of a feature from Marca a few days ago, ahead of SD Huesca’s game most recent game with Barcelona.

The piece describes Mir, who has been on loan with the club since January 2020, as one of the league’s most in-form players, and that he would be one to watch in the game on Tuesday.

It’s stated that Mir’s game has elevated since the arrival of Pacheta in the dugout El Alcoraz, and that he has been allowed to play to his strengths in recent weeks.

Tuesday night’s game saw Barcelona run out comfortable 4-1 winners, although it was Mir who bagged Huesca’s consolation.

It was he that won the penalty and converted to give his side hope at 2-1, but Oscar Mingueza and Lionel Messi snuffed out any chance of a comeback.

 

That said, ironically after Mir’s write up by Marca, the Wolves star actually did spurn a glorious chance in the second-half, missing from a yard out by chesting the ball over when he perhaps should have headed.

Mir stakes further Wolves claim

His miss was definitely not a nice moment for the player, but Mir still had an impact by scoring.

He continues to force Wolves to look at him as a potential option for next season.

With Willian Jose’s struggle for goals well documented, it is perhaps not out of the question for Mir to get a second chance at Molineux – clearly he is doing lots of things right to be described as a ‘complete striker’.
