Wolves 0-1 Sevilla

Commiseration to Wolves. The penalty should have been retaken.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Wolves were left to rue a missed penalty from Raul Jimenez as they were knocked out of the Europa League by Sevilla, who landed a late knockout blow in a 1-0 win.

In Wolves' first European quarter-final since 1972, they had the perfect opportunity to take the lead from the penalty spot after a quite scintillating run from Adama Traore on 12 minutes but Raul Jimenez was denied by goalkeeper Yassine Bounou.

Replays showed that the goalkeeper was slightly off his line when the kick was taken and a Sevilla defender was encroaching - but VAR didn't order a retake.

Think we’ll see Sevilla knocking the ball about a lot and us trying to conserve energy through the game. They will be better in the heat (if it’s still like it is now) and our players already look like they are knackered.

In the cold light of day we didnt do enough to win that, we've struggled to take our chances for a while now and that extended to our best player missing a penalty for the first time in his career. To reach the QF after qualifying is an achievement we should be proud of though, its only three years since we were preparing for a trip to Burton Albion.

I wouldn't be totally against playing some of our more 'energetic' players in the first half and then switching to our better XI in the second. Turn it into a 45 minute game where I think we'd have a better chance of not wilting in the heat.

The penalty really annoyed me. The rules are simple, and it should be a simple job for VAR to enforce those rules.

There is no excuse for not ordering a retake. I don't hate VAR, but if if can't even manage the basics, what's the point?
