Wolves Keeper Denies Pogba Penalty To Draw Man U

Pogba in shock after missed penalty and Wolves Neves, 32, scores to equalise

 

With the score 1-1 in the second half, the Frenchman was fouled by Conor Coady and got up to take the spot-kick, despite failing with three penalties last season and Marcus Rashford scoring from one against Chelsea on the opening weekend.

Pogba’s powerful shot was pushed away by Rui Patricio, who saved low to his right.

In a first half containing just three shots, Anthony Martial had put United in front with his 50th goal for the club – a fine left-footed finish – only for Ruben Neves to level with a sensational strike from the edge of the area, which bounced down off the crossbar 10 minutes after the break.

Wolves’ Raul Jimenez had flicked a header against the inside of a post just before Neves’ effort but neither keeper was troubled after Pogba’s miss, BBC Reports.
