Ghanaian defender Mohammed Salisu impresses on his debut as he helped Southampton advanced to the quarter-finals of the FA Cup following a 2-0 victory over Wolverhampton.
The defender was making his maiden appearance for the side after 183 days of joining the Saints from Spanish Club Real Valladolid.
Danny Ings and Armstrong scored all the important goals in the second to take Soton to the last eight of the FA Cup.
Gibbs-White glid past two Saints players in a tight space on the right edge of the box, before the midfielder went over under Salisu’s challenge – Mr. Moss said no penalty, but the VAR was having a look at it. But again, those at Stockley Park agreed with the man in the middle.
Ings was slipped through on goal by Bertrand’s through ball and faced with just Ruddy to beat, the forward scored at the second attempt after the Wolves’ keeper had blocked his initial effort. However, the flag went up for offside, and there was a VAR check. The goal was given, it was tight and Ings had timed his run right to score his eighth goal of the season.
In the 90th minute, Soton stretched the game out of Wolves’ reach as Armstrong netted the second with a cool finish from a tight angle.
