Wolves: Fans want Ivan Cavaleiro back after wonder goal for Fulham

On-loan Wolves winger Ivan Cavaleiro was at the forefront of Fulham’s 4-0 win over Millwall last night, scoring twice as the Cottagers moved up to third in the Championship.

His first goal on the quarter-hour mark was superb, the 25-year-old cutting inside past two opponents before unleashing a powerful drive into the top corner of the visitors’ net, and a video of the goal was posted on the @TalkingWolves Twitter channel.

Cavaleiro also scored the fourth goal for Fulham to round off a comprehensive home win for Scott Parker’s team, as well as setting up fellow loanee Anthony Knockaert for the Cottagers’ second goal of the night. [via BBC]

The Portugal winger now has three goals inside a week for Fulham, having also netted in last Friday’s 2-1 win away to Huddersfield.

He has already matched his tally of league goals from last season, when 17 of his 23 Premier League appearances came as a substitute, and is only two goals away from equalling his tally for all competitions in 2018/19.

Cavaleiro signed for Wolves in 2016 when they were in the Championship but was allowed to join Fulham on loan this summer after struggling to get into the first XI last season.

These Wolves fans on Twitter seemed a little wistful upon seeing his magnificent first goal from last night:
