Onel Hernandez: It was an unbelievable feeling

26 December 2018

Onel Hernandez has urged Norwich City supporters not to leave Carrow Road early in the future as the Canaries produced another remarkable late comeback.

With 12 minutes left on the clock, City trailed by three after goals from Matty Cash (2) and Jack Robinson. But Mario Vrancic put the wheels in action for a stirring fightback after his deflected effort beat Costel Pantilimon.

The deficit was still at two as the game entered stoppage time, but substitute Hernandez struck twice, including with the last kick, to send the home support into yet more wild celebrations.

A jubilant Hernandez said post-match: "It was an unbelievable feeling. It was so crazy. I came in and the team was struggling a little bit but at the end, with these goals, I'm happy that I can help my team with this.

"You saw today again, this was a big teamwork. It was unbelievably amazing. When I came in, I saw a lot of people going home. They thought the game was over, but every time, this team is amazing.

"We always come back. It's unbelievable. We never give up.

"It's been so good this season. For every fan that wanted to go home early, please stay a little bit longer next time, it's much better!"

Hernandez said that the spirit within the dressing room is like nothing he has experienced before.

"This team never gives up," he continued. "We see it every time. Today, there was seven minutes [added], and we all thought something was possible.

"Everyone was jumping at the end. It was crazy. They [the fans] never give up on us and we have to be thankful to the fans who are so good.

"It's a big family here and that's why it is unbelievable. I like it so much and we never give up. I've never seen this before in my life.

"I've played at a lot of little clubs in Germany at different points, but this year, I've never seen anything like this before in my life.

"It's very amazing. Everywhere you go in this city, you feel that it is a big club. It's a family club. It's very, very nice."
