A number of Norwich City fans have taken to Twitter to comment on Todd Cantwell's impressive performance in the 4-1 pre-season friendly loss to Atalanta.

The Canaries hosted the Serie A high-flyers at Carrow Road on Tuesday and, although Cantwell opened the scoring for Daniel Farke's side, the visitors proved just too good for the Premier League new-boys.

Atalanta, who finished third in the league last term to qualify for the Champions League, equalised through Luis Muriel on the stroke of half-time and then took the lead through the same player just after the hour mark.

 

 

Further efforts from Mario Pasalic and Musa Barrow went on to secure a heavy win for the Italians and give Farke plenty of food for thought ahead of their final pre-season friendly, against Toulouse, with their Premier League opener against Liverpool on the horizon.

Cantwell took his goal well, coolly slotting home from Moritz Leiner's assist, and his passing in the final third was sharp as he provided numerous deliveries for the likes of Teemu Pukki to try their luck.

Here is what some Norwich fans on social media said about the youngster's performance, one of just a few positives on the night:

Cantwell came through the Canaries' academy system and made his first-team debut in the FA Cup third round replay defeat to Chelsea in January 2018.

Earlier this month, the 21-year-old signed a new contract at Norwich that commits him to Carrow Road until the summer of 2022 (official Canaries website).
