Molineux - Wolves - Billy Wright Stand

Wolverhampton Wanderers have a famously named young prospect in their ranks.

Wolves have a new youngster to be excited about, the magnificently named Eusebio Bancessi.

The teenager bagged a hat-trick for the under-21 side in a 3-1 win over Tottenham Hotspur's highly acclaimed academy last night, demonstrating his potential.

So what do fans need to know about the exciting young talent who shares a name with the Portuguese legend?

Here are five facts about him...

1) Eusebio is a right winger who Wolves signed from Benfica on September 1, and is just 18-year-old.

2) Last night's goals bring his tally to seven goals in his last three games for the under-21 side.

3) The teenager was born in and hails from West African country Guinea-Bissau.

4) During a trial last season, Wolves substituted Eusebio after less than a half of football, happy they had seen enough and not wanting to risk alerting any other watching scouts further.

5) First team boss Kenny Jackett said before last night's game that Eusebio was close to a first team opportunity. His hat-trick makes that debut even more likely to be sooner rather than later.
