Mario Vrancic: We were pretty confident that we were going to turn the game

1 December 2018

Mario Vrancic has praised the determination of his teammates and the support of the Canary fans who helped them secure three points at Carrow Road.

Vrancic said his team were confident they could turn the game around at half time after going into the break 1-0 down, and went on to score three second-half goals.

“We all feel very happy,” said Vrancic. “We are buzzing!

“It was a great win, but a hard game and a tough game. But at the end if you judge it, it was a well-deserved win.

“At half-time we said to ourselves ‘we are going to get our chances and we are going to use them and win this game.’ We were pretty confident that we were going to turn the game because apart from maybe 10 minutes in the first half when we were struggling a bit, we played our game and were very confident.”

And after the equaliser went in, Vrancic said the atmosphere in the stadium spurred them on even more. 

“If you are scoring it gives you a boost and also we must give big credit to our fans because we could feel the whole game that the fans were behind us,” Vrancic said.

“I think you could feel it on the pitch, especially after the equaliser, that we were going to win the game and I think everybody in the stadium could feel this.

“We could feel that the fans were behind us and it’s really important and like a 12th player. Big credit to them and thanks for the support.”

The game was a special occasion for Todd Cantwell who got his first goal for the Club, with Max Aarons also scoring his first league goal.

Vrancic said: “I said to Todd before the game ‘I’ve got a good feeling you are going to score today’ and luckily he did. And he got the assist to Max for the second goal and it’s a great feeling to see the guys coming from the Academy and helping us to win this important game.”

City will now turn their attention to next Saturday’s game when they are back in action at home against Bolton Wanderers, and Vrancic said they will take that winning feeling into the match.

"We know it’s going to be a tough task against Bolton,” he said. “We are going to recover a bit and we’ve got a session tomorrow, but we are going to enjoy the win and the important victory. From Tuesday onwards, we are going to turn our focus to Bolton to get the next home win.”
