Isak Thorvaldsson: We will give everything to get the win

1 February 2019

Norwich City's Under-23s take on West Bromwich Albion in the PL2 at Colney Training Centre tonight (kick-off 7pm).

The visitors are just one spot below the Canaries in the table, but come up against a City side unbeaten in their last three games in all competitions. spoke to 17-year-old Isak Thorvaldsson ahead of the game.

Thorvaldsson said: "We have been working hard on our game in training and will give everything to try to get the points.

"They will be bringing everything as well because they will be wanting to get the three points as we are close to each other in the league."

The Icelandic forward has switched between the Under-18s and Under- 23s side this season, and Thorvaldsson believes a similar style of play between the sides has helped him.

"Both sides look to try and get the ball in behind for the forwards to run on to, I think think has helped me in the Under-23s.

"We have been a lot more comfortable on the ball in the last few games, and have been playing well going forward."

Thorvaldsson has played as both striker and a wide midfielder this season, but said he doesn't mind where he plays just as long as he can help the team.

"I used to play in midfield when I was younger, I was more of an eight [central midfielder] because I had a lot of pace and strength.

"Now I play as a forward a lot more, it is different but I think I have adapted well. Obviously scoring goals is good, but I only want to help the team."
