Raúl Jiménez makes his first assist of the season

Wolves took advantage against Newcastle with the goal of Hwang Hee-Chan, where the Mexican Raúl Jiménez stood out for the assistance he gave, being his first pass to goal of the season

Mexican striker Raúl Jiménez recovers his instinct as a forward and in this Saturday’s engagement between Wolverhampton and Newcastle, he became a stellar piece with an assist.

Jiménez gave something to talk about with the pass he had at minute 20, where he stole the ball from the rival and outlined the area. In his walk, the Mexican team filtered the ball between four rivals to leave Hwang Hee-Chan outlined, who in front of the goalkeeper finished with power and scored the first goal of the match.

Raúl Jiménez got off to a slow start to the tournament after sustaining his skull fracture in December 2020.

The Mexican is the Wolves footballer with the most opportunities created and the most shots on goal in the tournament, but he had not managed to score. Jiménez scored his first touchdown less than a week ago when he scored the winning goal against Southampton, 10 months after his head clash with Brazilian David Luiz.

The element formed in America will report to the Mexican National Team this weekend to face the October FIFA date and play three World Cup qualifying matches.

“From the first moment they informed me of the risks. They have to tell you the truth and you have to accept it. The skull fracture took a little longer than we all expected to heal, but it is a miracle to be here,” Jiménez told The Guardian after his return to the courts. The last pass to goal that the Hidalgo achieved was on October 6 of last year in the commitment against Olympiakos, in play corresponding to the round of 16 of the Europa League.
