Southampton midfielder James Ward-Prowse had the Molineux stadium standing when he took a perfect free kick against Wolves in a Premier League encounter on Saturday. Ward-Prowse’s technical masterclass helped him burrow the ball into the top right corner of the goal. The magnificent goal was barely celebrated by the goalscorer as the whole team ran towards the halfway line for the game to resume to buy time. However, despite that stunning strike, Southampton lost 1-3 as Adam Traore scored in injury time to seal the three points for the home side.
Video of the free-kick goal was shared by Southampton FC’s Instagram handle with a caption celebrating Ward-Prowse’s genius.
“There’s magic in those boots. #saintsfc.”
Raul Jimenez opened the scoring for Wolves in the 37th minute with a penalty and helped the home side to a crucial lead despite Southampton retaining the majority of possession.
Conor Coady doubled Wolves’ lead 14 minutes into the second half as Southampton were forced to change tactics and attack more to create scoring opportunities.
The game looked over and dusted off before Ward-Prowse gave his side a glimmer of hope in the dying minutes of the game.
However, Traore ended any hopes of a return to Southampton with a stunning 91st-minute goal to seal a victory.
After the match, Wolves sit eighth with 31 points while Southampton languish in 12th place with 24 points.
