Daniel Farke: I'm so proud of the team

21 February 2018

Daniel Farke couldn't hide the pride he felt for his Norwich City team after their latest never-say-die effort in the Sky Bet Championship on Wednesday night.

The Canaries fought back from two goals down to take a point off league leaders Wolves at Molineux, with their equaliser coming deep into stoppage-time when Nelson Oliveira smashed home from distance.

Speaking to Norwich City TV after the game, Farke said: "I can't be prouder today.

"We were facing the best team in the league and they were up after 20 minutes. They were totally on the front foot but we were able to come back.

"Although the equaliser was late, it was totally deserved. There wasn't much difference in the first half and they didn't have control of the game.

"In the second half we controlled the game. I'm pretty happy with my lads tonight."

Although City dictated long periods after the restart, the fact they had to wait until the final seconds to snatch a deserved point from the contest was not something which overly concerned Farke.

"It's difficult to create chances against Wolves because they are outstanding in their defensive behaviour," the Head Coach explained.

"They've only lost one game from when they've gone in front. They are also dangerous on the counter-attack but we defended everything.

"We got the feeling although we weren't able to create many chances, we put more pressure on them minute-to-minute. There were just five seconds to go and it was an outstanding goal.

"Nelson Oliveira has that technique. To score the equaliser from 35 yards; football is crazy but that's why we love the game."
