Wolves’ Dendoncker plays full part in Belgium win

Wolves midfielder Leander Dendoncker played the full 90 minutes as Belgium beat Russia as they began their road to Euro 2020 with a 3-1 victory over their Group I rivals tonight.

Two minutes later goalkeeper Courtois gave the ball away under pressure from Artem Dzyuba and Denis Cheryshev slotted in. But just before the break it was 2-1 when Hazard converted a penalty before he slotted in a late third. Belgium…

But they have lost their last four FA Cup semi-finals, in 1973, 1979,…

Hibbitt: Wolves crowd made it feel like a World Cup final

The double League Cup winner also says the noise equalled the best he has known in all his 50-year association with the club, even though he played in several bigger crowds in his 16 years as a player there. “I thought it was electric last Saturday.
