Hunty on fire in the rain (video)
The in form Wolves midfielder Stephen Hunt was behind both goals for the Republic of Ireland when they overcame Italy with 2-0 tonight in Liege, Belgium in a friendly.
The first one came after the first half hour when Hunt fooled the Italian defence by playing the ball back to Andrews after a free-kick. He scored a beautiful goal and Ireland was in the lead against play.
Just look at it!
Italy started the best and if it wasn’t for Wolves utility player Ward who convientely slipped in with a leg they would have taken the lead early on in the game.
In the last minutes of the game Hunty took the ball forward on his left wing and got round his defender to cross in beautifully, letting Simon Cox slide in to score the Republics second.
Nice, eh? Would Wolves have ended up in the middle of the Premiership with Hunty fit and hungry the past season? I do believe so and can’t wait for next season to start!
UP THE WOLVES!
