Wolves midfielder Ruben Neves is the Sky Bet Championship Goal of the Month winner for April, having received 64% of the public vote.
A once-in-a-career strike. Derby thought they had cleared the danger. Neves had other ideas, flicking the ball up and looping a majestic 30-yard volley into the top corner at pace.
Lead Sky Bet EFL Goal of the Month judge and Sky Sports Pundit Don Goodman said: “What can you say about this goal that hasn’t already been said? In a month with some extraordinary goals in it, Neves’ strike was a deserved winner, and quite possibly the Goal of the Season, too.
“As Neves has said himself, the first touch is actually behind where he wanted it to be, so the adjustment of his body and footwork to take the strike make the goal even more impressive.”
Neves said: “It was a fantastic goal, my favourite goal, but the most important thing was that we won the game.
“It was a corner for us and if I lose the ball there, it’s dangerous for our team, so I had to take a risk, but fortunately for me, I scored this goal.
“My first touch, the ball went a bit behind me, so I had to adjust my body a little bit to get the touch, but I don’t have too much to say because it was an incredible goal and I’m just happy to help the team.
“When you play, you have your characteristics, and one of mine is shooting from outside of the box. I have to improve, I have to take risks and I look forward to scoring more goals like this.”
Neves beat off competition from Sheffield United’s Lee Evans and Aston Villa’s Jack Grealish.
