Jimenez penalty miss proves costly for the Wolves
Europa League experts Sevilla denied Wolves a semi-final clash against Manchester United, with Lucas Ocampos’ late header sealing a 1-0 win
The lads gave it their all reaching the clubs first european quarter final in 48 years with a fair few stamps in the passport – Northern Ireland, Armenia, Italy, Turkey, Slovakia, Portugal, Spain and Greece
Ending an unforgettable journey in such a manner – a real sucker punch of a blow, right at the end, and in front of empty stands in Duisburg was heartbreaking for all connected to the club.
While Jimenez is not getting any stick for his penalty miss, the officials were after Sevilla goalkeeper Yassine Bounou came off his line before saving the penalty.
Replays also showed defender Diego Carlos, the first player to the loose ball, encroached in the box leaving the Wolves players frustrated with the video assistant referee’s inaction at that moment.
But on a brighter note, this is the last time we get to go on about how the season started way back in July last year. It’s over. We take a break albeit a short one and come back in a few weeks for the new season.
