Wolverhampton Wanderers 3-1 Brentford

24 Sep

Joao Teixeira


Joao Teixeira arrived at Molineux in August

Joao Teixeira scored his first two goals for Wolves as Walter Zenga’s side beat Brentford at Molineux.

The winger, on loan from Benfica, opened the scoring just after the break with a shot which squeezed under visiting goalkeeper Daniel Bentley.

He added a fortunate second, as his cross from a free-kick on the left bounced past everyone and in.

Sullay Kaikai pulled a goal back for Brentford, before Ivan Cavaleiro scored a stoppage-time third for Wolves.
