Egypt defender Ahmed Elmohamady scored the crucial goal that gave Aston Villa a 2-1 win over Wolverhampton Wanderers on Wednesday.

The 32-year-old hit the target in the 57th minute for his first goal of the season which propelled the Villa Park outfit to the quarter-finals of the League Cup. 

With the game tied at 1-1, Elmohamady linked up with Henri Lansbury's free-kick and drifted it past Wolves goalkeeper just before the hour-mark.

The Egypt international alongside his compatriot Mahmoud Trezeguet were in action for the whole duration of the match while Zimbabwe's Marvelous Nakamba watched on from the bench.

The African trio will be looking to help Aston Villa build on their win when they host Liverpool for Saturday's Premier League fixture.
