Jota had dominated the tournament and the Portuguese winger was absolutely delighted to win it all, wearing his Wolves jersey for the final and celebrating as TAA was clearly gutted to just come up short.
Liverpool took the lead thanks Georginio Wijnaldum’s header in the first half but Adama Traore scored with 15 minutes to go to make it 1-1 and missed a glorious chance to win it in the final minute.
Deep into the golden goal game Wolves had a shot cleared off the line and then hit the bar as Liverpool were under extreme pressure and they eventually cracked as Raul Jimenez hammered home at the near post to give Jota and Wolves the title.
