Wolves fans on Twitter were delighted with Ivan Cavaleiro’s comeback from injury

Wolves forward Ivan Cavaleiro returned from a back injury to make his mark on the Premier League on Saturday, scoring with his first ever touch in England’s top division to open the scoring against Southampton.

Nuno Espirito Santo’s side would go on to win the game 2-0, but it was Cavaleiro’s comeback that had fans excited on Twitter.

The 24-year-old was one of the stand-out performers as Wolves stormed the Championship last season, picking up 99 points on their way to the title and the Premier League.

The Portuguese international winger was named among the substitutes against Southampton, but with 13 minutes of normal time remaining he was sent on by Santo. Just two minutes later, striker Raul Jimenez controlled the ball in the box and set it back for Cavaleiro, who fired past Alex McCarthy in the Saints net to finally break the deadlock.

With Diogo Jota, Helder Costa and Adama Traore all impressing so far this season, Wolves can now add Cavaleiro to the mix of attackers that opposing teams will have to do their homework on. Check out some of the best reactions to his return below.
