REPORT: UNDER-23s 3-0 CELTIC

16 November 2016

Young Canaries beat The Celts in PL International Cup

NORWICH City's Under-23s move to the top of Group E of the Premier League International Cup after a 3-0 win over Celtic at Carrow Road.

City were awarded a penalty after six minutes when Sergi Canos was brought down in the box. Carlton Morris slotted home from the spot to give the young Canaries an early lead.

Morris had an opportunity to bag his second in the 13th minute after finding himself beyond The Celts' defense before shooting straight at Leonardo Fasan.

Aidan Nesbitt wriggled his way through the City defense only to see his shot float beyond the far post 20 minutes in.

One minute before half-time Josh Murphy's corner found its way to Ebou Adams in the centre of the box whose powerful shot was well saved by Fasan. Seconds later Murphy's deflected shot hit the crossbar almost looping into the Celtic goal.

City doubled their lead 13 minutes into the second half when Murphy cut inside from the left flank and curled the ball into the far corner.

The Canaries' third goal came in the 81st minute when Canos' corner was headed on by Michael Turner before reaching Morris who headed home to claim his second of the game.

The Under-23s absorbed The Bhoys' pressure well in the dying embers of the game to move themselves to the top of Group E.
