As we’ve told you previously, the Portugal international arrived at the Championship club for an eyebrow-raising £18 million earlier this summer from Porto, and just about nobody could understand how they’d pulled it off.

Six minutes into the game, which Wolves went on to win 3-2 to make it three wins out of three in the Championship so far, Neves opened the scoring at the KCOM Stadium by nonchalantly bending in an absolute beauty into the top far corner from about 30 yards out:

Now that is how you finish, eh?
He might be a Championship player right now, but we’re willing to bet he won’t be for long.
