Diallang Jaiyesimi says Norwich City's Under-23s will benefit from the positive learning experience of their 2017-18 pre-season tour in Germany.
The attack-minded youngster was speaking after a 2-1 defeat to Eintracht Braunschweig Under-23s on Friday, a game in which he netted the consolation for Matt Gill's side.
"It's been a tough week so it was a good performance by the boys," Jaiyesimi told canaries.co.uk.
"We're disappointed to have lost but that was the kind of game we needed. We'll take all the positives we can from it.
"We've had no excuses with the first team watching over us this week, we've had to put the work in. I'm pleased to score but it's a team effort so all credit to the boys.
"They had a lot of experienced players so it was tough but we pulled through."
