Robbie Brady's classy winner sunk Wolves and now Alex Neil wants his Euro 2016 star to stamp his mark on Norwich City's Championship promotion surge.

The Republic of Ireland international unleashed a stunning 25-yard strike to seal a 2-1 victory at Wolves after a pre-match pep talk from his manager.

'We actually said to Robbie before this game we need to see a little bit more from him because he is better than what he has shown recently and he pops up with that,' said the City chief.

'I just think there is lot of expectation on young boys nowadays. He is still only what, 23 or 24, Robbie so he is a young lad and the expectation on him, because of how good a Euros he had, is something maybe he needs to come to terms with and focus on his game and not worry about all the hype and what other people say. That is the quality we have got. We have guys who are capable of doing those things.'

Brady and his City team mate, Wes Hoolahan, have now joined up with their country for upcoming World Cup qualifiers against Georgia and Moldova after inspiring Norwich to a battling win at Molineux.

'Wes is magic. Isn't he,' said Neil.

'He is a special player for us and I felt the game against Newcastle didn't suit him. Me and Wes have got a real good understanding in terms of using him at his best and getting the most from him. I look after him and what he tells me is he looks after me when he goes on the pitch.

'At 3-1 up against Newcastle that probably looked right but I wanted to bring him back in for Wolves because I know in certain games, when teams are quite open and play with one sitting midfielder, the quality Wes has got. Once again he did what he is capable of doing, which is create chance after chance for us.'
