Wolves breezed past their Europa League opposition with a 4-0 victory over Pyunik in Armenia on Thursday evening, thanks to goals from Raul Jimenez (2), the returning Matt Doherty and set-piece specialist Ruben Neves.
But there was one notable absentee from the squad…
Seems like Adama Traore isn't in Armenia because he forgot his passport.
Nuno: "He didn't know….it's impossible to travel with an ID card. He'll join us for the next game."

Yes. It does appear that a professional footballer failed to travel with the one thing that would allow him out of the country.
Wolves’ winger-turned-defender Adama Traore couldn’t travel with the team this week after forgetting his passport by instead bringing an ID card.
A number of the Molineux faithful took to Twitter to take a swipe at the 23-year-old.
Many blasted his lack of intelligence with one supporter stating that he’s always said Traore doesn’t have a brain and this incident proves it, whilst another added that this was the most Adama thing ever, calling him a bit dopey.
Others demanded that the Spaniard was heavily fined and one fan even wanted the club to ‘get rid’ of him.
Traore has been enjoying a decent pre-season at right wing-back for Nuno Santo’s side and in the Europa League second-round qualifying first-leg victory over Crusaders he assisted one of their two goals from that very position.
Though any doubts over his future involvement at the club were firmly put to bed by the Portuguese manager as he said Traore would join up with the squad for the next game – a Premier League opener against Leicester City.
Here’s the best of the reaction…
I am formally applying to be Adama’s new mother, making sure he has his passport and clean pants.

That must be a dressing room fine…. To be fair to Adama I know lots of European Countries allow travel with ID card so easy mistake to make.

I keep saying that traore doesnt have a brain and this just proves it. He should be disciplined for not being available for selection.
