Wolves player one of ‘most questioned names’ at national team due to poor form

As Wolverhampton Wanderers forward Matheus Cunha prepares to return to Brazil for another international break, he is seeing some backlash from the local media.

On UOL, journalist Rafael Reis writes about the player as a “striker without goals.”

According to the report, Cunha is one of the ‘most questioned names’ on Fernando Diniz’s list, and the Wolves center-forward is becoming ‘notorious’ for failing to score goals.

In fact, the player has only scored once in nine appearances for Molineux this season. After nine games for Brazil, he has yet to find the back of the net.

According to UOL, since Cunha joined Wolves, players on the national team who play defense have scored more goals than him. This is the case for Juventus centre-backs Bremer and Nino, as well as Manchester United midfielder Casemiro.

According to the newspaper, despite costing a total of €118 million in transfers, Cunha has never been a consistent scorer at the elite level. That’s pretty much true, and with three goals in 29 Wolves appearances so far, it’s difficult to see that changing.
