Nicolas Nkoulou played
90 minutes in Torino’s 2-3 loss against English Premier league side Wolverhampton. The first leg of the last round of the Europa league preliminary took place at the Olimpico di Torino stadium on Thursday August 22.
The game caught the eye and met expectations in terms of free flowing football and drama, but, the men of coach Walter Mazzari shot themselves in the foot.
Torino conceded a late first half goal and 2 more in the second half before De Silvestri and Belotti could only reduce tally to 2-3.
This scoreline vastly favours Wolves, Torino might have just drawn the curtains on their European aspirations as Wolverhampton takes 3 massive away goals back to the Molineux.
Nicolas Nkoulou can only get to the group stage of the competition if they go to England with their defensive “A” game and score at least twice without reply in the return fixture on Thursday August 29.
