Wolves and Spain fans react on Twitter to Jonny's international debut

Wolves fans celebrate during the Sky Bet Championship match between Derby County and Wolverhampton at iPro Stadium on August 12, 2017 in Derby, England.

Wolverhampton Wanderers' Premier League full-back Jonny Otto made his Spain debut in the 4-1 thrashing of Wales on Thursday.

Jonny Otto has looked superb at left-back since he joined Wolverhampton Wanderers on loan from Atletico Madrid. But he showed on Thursday that he is equally effective on the opposite flank too.

Jonny’s fine form at Wolves earned him a first ever call-up to the Spanish national team, with injury ruling out Dani Carvajal and Sergi Roberto. And he certainly took his chance to impress when coming on with half an hour to go against Wales on Thursday.

Spain cruised to a 4-1 win at the Principality Stadium and the likes of Rodri, Suso and two-goal Paco Alcacer will hog the headlines.

But, as usual, Jonny was quietly brilliant too. He made one super challenge to deny Sam Vokes an almost certain goal from point blank range and got forward with great effect too.

One beautifully weighted through ball created a glorious chance for Iago Aspas, only for the full-back’s former Celta Vigo team-mate to be flagged up for off-side.

And fans of both Wolves and Spain alike have taken to Twitter to congratulate 24-year-old Jonny on a promising debut appearance for the national team. There could be many more nights like this.
