Maths challenge for young Norwich City fans

Parents looking for fun ways to keep their children interested during home schooling have been given a creative way to combine a passion for Norwich City with a maths challenge.
Canaries fan Lucia Roberts posted a video of her son, Ben, tackling some addition and subtraction challenges using the squad numbers of Daniel Farke’s players.
For example, as swiftly answered by young Ben, if you add Todd Cantwell (shirt number 14) and Sam Byram (3) you get Emi Buendia (17).
Not only showing his sharp memory to be able to recall all of the City squad numbers, the youngster was also able to get in some valuable maths homework - even receiving an approving tweet from England Under-21 international Todd Cantwell in reply.
There are currently 23 players in the Norwich squad but all are having to train at home during the coronavirus pandemic, having not played for over a month and with the season suspended until at least the end of May.
