Lucas Joao named in Capital One Cup XI

28 February 2016

Wednesday striker Lucas Joao has been named in the Capital One Cup Team of the Tournament for 2015/16.

The 22-year-old struck twice in the competition as the Owls made it to the quarter final stage.

Joao opened his account for the season in the 4-1 home League Cup victory over Mansfield but it was the memorable night at Hillsborough against Arsenal where the striker’s performance earned the plaudits.

Wednesday stunned the Gunners in S6 with Ross Wallace, Joao and Sam Hutchinson scoring the goals in the 3-0 win.

The Portuguese international has scored eight goals for the Owls this term with the latest coming in Wednesday’s 4-0 win over Brentford earlier this month.

The Owls defeated Mansfield, Oxford, Newcastle and Arsenal before exiting the competition at The Britannia Stadium, losing 2-0 against Premier League side Stoke.

That impressive run also saw Owls head coach Carlos Carvalhal named as Manager of the Tournament to boot!

Manchester City were crowned as the League Cup champions on Sunday at Wembley after overcoming Liverpool on penalties.
