Speaking after the exciting contest, the young sensation described it as a dream come true for him to score his first goal in the English Premier League for his boyhood club.
“It’s a dream come true. I still think I’m dreaming to be honest. To play in the Premier League for my boyhood club it’s been amazing,” Kobbie Mainoo said in his post-match interview.
In the game today, a Marcus Rashford strike in the 5th minute handed Manchester United the lead.
Later in the 22nd minute, a strike from Rasmus Højlund doubled the lead for the visitors as they took a healthy lead into the break.
After recess, Pablo Sarabia pulled one back for Wolves in the 71st minute to give the host a fighting chance.
