Wolves boss Nuno Espirito Santo said he would have settled for a draw after Willy Boly netted the equaliser in a 3-1 victory over Tottenham at Wembley.
Boly’s headed goal came from Wolves’ first effort on target in the 72nd minute, before Raul Jimenez and Helder Costa wrapped up a shock win.
The visitors had fallen behind to a wonderful Harry Kane strike and were second best before Boly pulled them level.
And Nuno would have been happy to come away with a point after snatching an equaliser against the Premier League’s second-placed side.
“The second half was really, really good. We managed possession, had chances and goals,” he said.
“We had a lot of belief after the equaliser, I would have said a draw was a good result, but I cannot control the emotions of the boys if they see space in front of them.
Our thoughts exactly, Conor.

“It is good for the dressing room but to play like this at Wembley – the home of football – is the big thing.
“We have achieved something very special in getting to the Premier League and it has been a very special year.”
Wolves sit seventh after the victory and next host Crystal Palace on January 2.
