A crazy platform to build on – Onel Hernandez could barely conceal his delight as Norwich City twice came from behind to earn an opening Championship point at Birmingham.
The Cuban-born German winger notches his first two goals for the club after arriving in January, his second coming in the fourth minute of added time to avoid a first-day defeat at St Andrew's.
'I am feeling very good and it was very emotional for me, with the supporters and my team-mates – it was a very crazy moment; Well done!' beamed the 25-year-old.
'Of course that second goal was very special. Amazing. But before that was the assist from Dennis Srbeny, a very good pass. I thank him for this.
'I saw all the fans and the supporters. They were very emotional moments and I love them. I love this game. It's crazy.

'The boss will prepare us for the next week and then we will see what happens.'
It proved a lucky 13th appearance in a Norwich shirt for Hernandez – scoring his first goals for the club, and most of those first eight months saw the same thing asked of Hernandez by City boss Daniel Farke.
'Every time the boss is telling me to get more goals and more assists; this is true,' smiled Hernandez. 'For this season, it is my focus. I hope this now works for me.'
