Pat’s the way to do it as Wolves striker Cutrone in Italy’s U21 squad

Wolves striker Patrick Cutrone has been named in Italy’s Under-21 squad for two fixtures over the next fortnight. The 21-year-old is one of two English-based players included in coach Paolo Niccolate’s 23-man squad, with Everton striker Moise Kean. The Azzurrini will look to continue their impressive form against the Republic of Ireland and Armenia on October 10 and 14 respectively after getting their UEFA Euro 2021 qualifying campaign off to a perfect start with a 5-0 victory over Luxembourg on September 10. This is Cutrone’s first call-up since moving to England, but the £16m striker signed from AC Milan has…

The 28-year-old striker scored eight goals in his first 10 games of the season in all competitions but has failed to find the net in his last five matches. Jimenez misses Mexico’s opening CONCACAF Group B qualifiers away to Bermuda next…

Nuno wants Wolves to have Man City’s top-game mentality

Nuno Espirito Santo has urged Wolves to be like Manchester City and Liverpool by learning to cope with the intensity of playing in the big matches every game. Sunday’s Premier League clash at City will be Wolves’ 17th game of the season, of which eight have come in the Europa League. Wolves have found it tough adapting to the demands of the Premier League and European competition for the first time, winning just one of their opening seven Premier League outings. Top teams such as City and Liverpool, who regularly qualify for the Champions League, have big squads and are…
