Timi Odusina: We need to be more clinical in front of goal

14 November 2018

Timi Odusina said Norwich City Under-23s “need to be more clinical” when reflecting on his sides performance at Carrow Road on Wednesday night.

City Under-23s lost 3-0 against Athletic Club Bilbao’s under-23s team at Carrow Road in their first game of this season’s Premier League International Cup.

Odusina said: “It’s disappointing to lose, especially by the margin that we did. Although I thought they were a good team and it showed by the score line."

Even though City lost, Odusina believes there are still many positives to take out of the game.

“We still had a lot of chances in the game so we will take the positives but if we had taken our chances at the right moments, then I think that we could have got something from the game. We will try to build on the negatives."

The City players were still working hard for each other, despite being three goals down in the final stages, both Adam Phillips and Alfie Payne were pushing from midfield to get on the end of crosses.

“It shows the team spirit, we try not to give up and we want to keep playing the way we set out to play, even when things aren’t really going for us."

Odusina is excited to play in more Premier League International Cup games, as he believes it’s a great platform to build upon.

“I think it’s great to be playing against the best teams, so it’s a chance to show yourself, and show others how good you are.

“It’s a good platform, as Todd [Cantwell] said to the lads before the game, there’s a lot of fans watching us, so it’s a good opportunity.

“We just need to go out there and perform, and this competition gives us a chance to show everyone how well we can play."
