Forward bags his first City treble in victory over The RamsNELSON Oliveira was eager to spread the plaudits across the Norwich City squad after his starring role in a 3-0 Sky Bet Championship win over Derby County at Carrow Road on Monday.
The Portugal international netted a perfect hat-trick to help the Canaries convincingly see off Steve McClaren's side, ensuring 2017 began in ideal fashion.
Speaking to Norwich City TV after the game, Oliveira said: "I feel very happy because we won the game.
"Everyone played well, and I'm happy that I helped the team with goals. The lads helped me a lot. I scored three times but without them it's impossible.
"It was important to start the new year with a good performance and a good result. We've done that by playing well.
"We need to keep working now."
The manner of City's victory over an in-form County outfit was particularly pleasing for the 25-year-old, who added: "They had won a lot in their last team games; I think they had kept eight clean sheets.
"Hopefully I can score more and the team can win more games."
