After joining Norwich City in January 2018, Onel Hernández got off to a flying start to the 2018/19 season.

The winger scored two late goals to salvage a point at Birmingham City on the Championship's opening day, kicking off a trend of last minute goals for Norwich.

When he came on as a second-half substitute in the opening game of the 2019/20 campaign at Liverpool, Onel became the first Cuban-born player to play in the Premier League.

Now an established member of Daniel Farke's Norwich squad, Onel spent the eight years prior to his move to England in Germany, where he played for Arminia Bielefeld, Werder Bremen II, VfL Wolfsburg II, and Eintracht Braunschweig.

Last season was a campaign disrupted by injury for Onel but he still managed to play 23 games for the club as we won the Sky Bet Championship with a club record 97 points.

He also, following a change in selection rules from the Cuban Football Association, made his first international appearance for his country and netted his first international goal in March 2021 against Curaçao.
