Wolverhampton Wanderers fans have been reacting to a special club memory on Thursday, the one-year anniversary of a huge moment in their promotion back to the Premier League.
It was exactly 365 days since Ruben Neves’ obscene volley in the 2-0 home victory over Derby County, a night of three points that took Nuno Espirito Santo’s closer to the Sky Bet Championship title.
To celebrate, the Wanderers posted a video on Twitter of the remarkable strike and proclaimed that the day should be named in the Portuguese’s honour.
Happy Ruben Neves day!
A once-in-a-lifetime goal, on this day last year!

The “once-in-a-lifetime goal” is still clearly a fresh memory for Wolves supporters, despite all the side’s success this season in the English top flight and their march to the semi-finals of the FA Cup.
Some were still in disbelief about the strike a year on, while another articulated that they had never seen a better goal live and that Molineux had never witnessed a more spectacular strike, while one more urged the central midfielder to recreate the worldie at the weekend.

I’ll never see a better goal live, I’m certain of that. I held my breath as he hit it, the feeling when it went in was incredible. Perfection.

Best goal I have ever seen live. It’s got to be the best goal ever scored at Molineux as well and will take some beating
