Wolves midfielder Ruben Neves: My favourite goals were from promotion run

Wolves midfielder Ruben Neves admits his favourite goals were struck in the Championship.

Neves' goals helped win Wolves promotion three years ago.

He told the club's website: “For the club, my most important goal was the Cardiff one, because they were second at the time and that win gave us a really good distance from them. But the Derby County goal was a special one.

“I don't have a top five list. It's hard to say which goals are better than others, but the top one is definitely Derby County.

“If I was to put them in order, for me it would be: Derby County first, second is one I scored for Porto against Academica away, then the third one is Sheffield Wednesday away, fourth Sheffield United at home and the fifth is Man United from this season.

“I would put that over Espanyol because the Man United one was a hard movement to do and I needed to be really fast as my first touch was so bad, so I needed to give it another one, but fortunately I was fast enough to score."
