Wolverhampton Wanderers praised the performance of youngster Morgan Gibbs-White in the 1-0 loss to Portuguese side Braga in their opening Europa League game of the season.
The 19-year-old played 67 minutes as Wolves lost 1-0 thanks to a 71st-minute strike from Ricardo Horta (via BBC).
Gibbs-White made the joint-second most dribbles of any player on the pitch as he was rated the highest of all Wolves players by WhoScored.
The England youth international has enjoyed a good time at the club, making 60 appearances for the first-team at the mere age of 19 (via Transfermarkt).
The youngster tweeted after the loss, saying: “Disappointed with the defeat this evening but have to bounce back at the weekend. Thanks for your support tonight.” (via Twitter)
The loss to Braga was the side’s third consecutive defeat in all competitions after losses to Everton and Chelsea in the Premier League.
Fans were more than complimentary of the young midfielder after what was a good performance as they took to Twitter to react.
Here is a selection of tweets from the Wolves fans after Gibbs-White tweeted his message:

Your best game Morgan lad – and the best player on the pitch by a mile. Tactical switch only / logical when you came off. Keep your head high, and keep fighting

Well played Morgan. We’ll turn it around!
