Joao named in EFL Team of the Week

9 October 2018

Owls striker Lucas Joao has been named in the EFL Team of the Week following his two goals against Bristol City on Sunday.

The Portuguese’s brace earned Wednesday a 2-1 victory at Ashton Gate, which in turn sent the Owls into the Championship’s top six ahead of the international break.

Joao came on as a first half substitute for Wednesday, but it was in the second half where the damage was done.

On 64 minutes, the forward latched on to a long ball up field and calmly slotted past Niki Maenpaa in the Robins' goal for 1-0.

Then, just two minutes later, Josh Onomah slid the ball through to Joao, who dummied past his marker before smashing home for his, and Wednesday's, second.

Joao now leads the Owls’ scoring chart with five goals so far this campaign.
