Theo Walcott scores first league goal for Southampton in 15 YEARS as Saints draw at Wolves
Nov. 24, 2020
Theo Walcott got on the scoresheet once again for Southampton – albeit nearly 15 years after he last netted for the club where he started his career.
It was one of the easiest goals of his life as the unmarked forward tapped in Che Adams’ low cross from the right from six yards out, but Saints could only manage a 1-1 draw at Wolves.
The home side hit back later in the second half as Pedro Neto reacted quickest on the rebound after Raul Jimenez’s shot came back off the post.
Goalkeeper Alex McCarthy came to Southampton’s rescue a number of times by denying efforts from Neto, Daniel Podence and Nelson Semedo.
Walcott could have opened the scoring in the first half but his effort was saved by Rui Patricio, while the England international missed a chance to double Saints’ advantage.
But he made no mistake after the break as Walcott added to his Southampton goal tally for the first time since January 2006.
