Raúl Jiménez scores an amazing goal for Wolverhampton

Wolverhampton and Newcastle United drew 1-1 on matchday 6 of the 2020/21 Premier League season. Raúl Jiménez gave Wolves the lead with ten minutes left of the game, but Jacob Murphy’s strike from a free-kick in the 89th minute tied the game and both teams had to share the points at Molineux.

Fantastic goal from Jiménez

The home team dominated the game and finally Jiménez gave the team the breakthrough they had been looking for from the beginning. The free-kick was whipped in by Neto and cleared well by the head of Wilson.

The ball fell right in front of Jiménez, who controlled it on the edge of the area and shot from 25 yards with his right foot into the far corner to give Wolves the lead. This was his fourth goal of the season and the second consecutive game in which he had found the net.

A bittersweet feeling for Jiménez as the team failed to hold on to the three points, but thanks to him Wolves keep climbing up spots in the Premier League. With the draw against Newcastle they are now in eighth position with 10 points in six games.
