Wilf's Wolves Wonder Goal Scoops Prize

15 November 2012

Having won his first England cap last night against Sweden, Wilfried Zaha has also picked up the Palace Player October Goal of the Month award for his stunning second goal against Wolves.

Wilf's thunderbolt at Molineux was selected by Palace Player subscribers via Twitter as their favourite Eagles strike of the month, despite strong competition from Mile Jedinak's long-range effort against Millwall.

Palace had fallen behind against Wolves early in the second half, before Zaha scored a fine solo goal to equalise. Minutes later he took the ball on his chest and turned a defender before thumping the ball into the net which ultimately proved to be the winning goal.

On his goal, Wilf said: "I use to practice that run I made all the time in training so it just looked familiar, so I thought I'd make the run and see if it worked and in the end it worked out for me.

"The way the ball left my foot I could tell it was going in so I never had to look back after I'd shot."
