Raúl Jiménez scored his 150th career goal from the penalty spot. With the tranquility that characterizes him when he takes a penalty, the Mexican striker ended a month and a half drought without scoring with Wolverhampton. Jiménez is looking to return to his best level in this World Cup year, where he aims to be the Mexican national team's attacking reference.
Raúl opened the scoring in his team's Premier League victory over Southampton, scoring his fourth goal of the season. The 30-year-old came into this match on a seven-game scoreless streak, but Jiménez was not under pressure and always kept his composure.
Mexican striker scored his 150th goal against Southampton
True to his style, Raúl Jiménez perfectly fooled the Southampton goalkeeper in the first half to score his 150th goal. Wolves are the team where he has scored the most goals with a total of 52, followed by América, the club where he made his debut, with 38, then with Benfica, he scored 31 and only scored one goal with Atlético de Madrid, as confirmed by journalist Óscar Guevara.
With the Mexican national team, Raúl Jiménez has 28 goals to his name and will undoubtedly be looking to increase that number in the upcoming qualifying games for El Tri.
At Wolverhampton, Jiménez found the consistency he had been looking for in Europe and quickly won the affection of the English fans. His evolution since his arrival at Wolves is remarkable, as he became a regular scorer in the Premier League.
In his first season, he scored 13 goals, while in his second year in English soccer he increased his tally to 17 goals. Later, he suffered a skull fracture that kept him away from the field for nine months and returned for this season, where he already has 1567 minutes, four goals, and two assists.
