Jimenez strikes as Wolves sink Southampton

The Nation  |  Sep 27, 2021

SOUTHAMPTON - Raul Jimenez scored an emotional first goal since his horrific head injury in November as Wolves earned a 1-0 win over Southampton on Sunday. Jimenez feared he would never play again after suffering a fractured skull in a clash with David Luiz at Arsenal last year. The Mexico striker only returned to action at the start of this season and had gone without a goal in his first five games. Jimenez had shown signs of frustration with the supportive headband he now wears to protect himself, even angrily removing it after a missing a headed chance against Brentford last weekend. But the 30-year-old enjoyed a cathartic moment as his superb second half strike fired Bruno Lage’s men to their second Premier League win this season. Jimenez had never gone six Premier League games without a goal since he arrived at Molineux in 2018. In the 61st minute, he danced through the Southampton defence, twice eluding Jan Bednarek and leaving Mohammed Salisu bewildered on the turf, before calmly slotting past Alex McCarthy. The end of Jimenez’s 336-day wait to score sparked a joyous celebration with his team-mates. He was also embraced by the club’s travelling fans in one corner of St Mary’s after the final whistle.
