Wolves' 22-year-old Portuguese striker needs repair surgery to miss World Cup

Premier League club Wolverhampton Wanderers (Wolverhampton Wanderers) today announced a piece of bad news, referring to the 22-year-old Portuguese striker Pedro Neto due to an ankle injury that must undergo surgery and will not be able to represent the national team. the World Cup.

Neto made his first appearance for the Portuguese national team in November 2020, becoming the first post-00s player to represent Portugal, and he also scored his first goal for the national team on his debut, and then represented the national team. 3 appearances.

But unfortunately, the rising star suffered a serious knee injury while playing for Wolves in April last year, which caused him to miss up to 10 months. Neto has also returned to play in a fully recovered form this season and has started every Premier League game.

But the starlet suffered another injury in the ninth round of Wolves' 2-0 defeat to West Ham last weekend. At that time, Neto was forced to leave the field after being injured in the first half and went to the locker room for preliminary diagnosis and treatment. Under the diagnosis of the medical team, Neto was confirmed to be a lateral ligament tear.

Today, the Wolves official also issued a statement revealing the progress of Neto's injury, saying that after further evaluation and the opinions of medical experts, Neto must currently undergo an ankle repair operation, which means that he will not be able to participate in the upcoming World Cup .

This is undoubtedly a major blow for Wolves, but the team's blows follow, because Wolves not only lost Neto for a long time in the remaining Premier League, but also Wolves are currently 1 win, 3 draws and 4 losses. The poor record ranks third in the Premier League standings, and the team is also facing a state of vacancy in the coaching position. I am afraid that it will be irreversible this season.
