Jimenez makes first Wolves appearance since suffering fractured skull

Raul Jimenez is back in the Wolves team for the first time since suffering a fractured skull in November.

The Mexico international has been included in the starting XI for the Premier League side's friendly against Crewe Alexandra.

The match is Wolves' first under new coach Bruno Lage, who took charge this summer after Nuno Espirito Santo's departure.

What happened to Jimenez?

Jimenez sustained a fractured skull in late-November after clashing heads with David Luiz during a Premier League clash against Arsenal.

He required emergency surgery on the injury and the 30-year-old was not cleared to resume full training with his team-mates until May.
