No Quarter

No Quarter

Wolves have a modern day tradition of international goalkeepers.

12 months ago, if asked, most fans would have pinpointed Matt Murray as the next Molineux shot stopper to represent his country.

But as Murray sets out on a 7 month road to recovery following cruciate ligament surgery, it is his replacement Wayne Hennessey who has merged as the latest Wanderer to guard his nations goalposts.

Barely out of his teens, Hennessey has impressed John Toshack enough to be his first choice 'keeper, despite only having played a handful of games at Championship level.

Despite an apparent lack of experience, he has aquited himself with aplomb at the highest level and he is now looking forward to carrying his recent International form into the two crucial Euro qualifiers over the next seven days.

'I have been in for the last couple of games and hope it continues. It has been tremendous, and I still haven't let a goal in so I just hope I can continue that against a tremendous country like Germany.' he said this week.

The match is a real step up in class, and the size of the task in front of him isn't lost on the 6'5' 'keeper.

'This game, though, will be the biggest game of my life. Germany are outstanding and I know I will be worked hard, but we are on a roll and I haven't let a goal in yet, let's hope that continues.'

'I suppose everybody thinks Germany are expected to score a few as well, so I have to be on my toes to stop that and give the lads confidence.

'I have to talk and push people, even experienced players, they have to know what I want and I will try to keep everyone on their toes, whoever they are.

'Nobody can be allowed to relax and sit back, I will be on at them all the time.'

It would be a phenomenal achievment if Hennesey can lock out a Germany side that includes a Golden Boot winner in Miroslav Klose.

That no one would be surprised if he achieved that, is a measure of the respect and reputation he has built in his short time in the game.
