Wolves: Tim Spiers criticises Nelson Semedo’s performance against Germany

Wolves: Tim Spiers criticises Nelson Semedo’s performance against Germany - Wolves News

Tim Spiers has criticised the performance of Nelson Semedo for Portugal in their 4-2 loss to Germany at Euro 2020 on Saturday evening.

The Lowdown: Semedo was poor

Semedo certainly had a bad game, as did most of the Portuguese players, as they were not able to contain the Germans in a pulsating Group F encounter.

Should Wolves start Semedo?

Yes

Yes

No

No

The right-back achieved a mere 6.1 overall rating on Sofascore, the second-lowest out of any player to have set foot on the pitch, and was run ragged by Robin Gosens in Munich.

The Latest: Spiers on Semedo

Spiers, who writes for The Athletic, claimed that Semedo ‘had a torrid game’ and was ‘left exposed time and again’.

Only the biggest Wolves fans will get 100% on this 2020/21 season quiz. First up, who made the most appearances?

The 27-year-old lost out on three of his duels and also failed to record a single successful dribble, key pass or accurate cross in the match. Also, he lost possession of the ball on no fewer than 13 separate occasions, the most of any of his teammates (Sofascore).

The Verdict: Must do better

With Manchester United full-back Diogo Dalot in the Portugal squad, Semedo’s starting place in the team may well be at risk after that poor performance.

He knows that he needs to do better if the European champions are going to have any success in the tournament, while Wolves fans and Bruno Lage in particular will be keeping a close eye on him as well.

Semedo will want to return to pre-season with his club off the back of a successful Euros, but performances like these will certainly not help his cause in trying to impress the new manager at Molineux.
