In the second round of the English League Cup, Wolverhampton Wanderers were eliminated against Stoke City (English Second Division), in a match that ended 0-1.
Wolves are left out of England’s second most important domestic cup after in the 86th minute Stoke stormed Molineux Stadium of the game with a late goal in the 86th minute of the game from Jacob Brown, leaving Nuno Espirito Santo’s men with virtually no reaction power.
With several substitutes in the starting eleven, such as the young rookie Fabio Silva and Vitinha, aged 18 and 20 respectively, but with Adama Traoré as the starter, Wolves were the first disappointment of the season.
Stoke will meet Gillingham, from League One (English Third Division) in the third round of the League Cup.
