NORWICH City Under-18s produced a magnificent comeback to book their place in the FA Youth Cuparter-finals with a 5-4 extra-time victory over Middlesbrough at Carrow Road on Wednesday evening.
Norwich fought back from 4-1 down, staging a fantastic comeback to win 5-4. Middlesbrough led 3-1 at the break as two goals from Mitchell Curry and a further Harry Chapman strike emphatically cancelled out Todd Cantwell’s 7th minute penalty.
Boro extended their advantage with just over an hour gone when Lee Hetherington flicked home from a corner, before Benny Ashley-Seal reduced Norwich’s arrears with a fine finish. Glenn Middleton’s composed effort put Norwich within touching distance, ahead of Louis Ramsay’s majestic volley with just three minutes left of normal time, sending the game into extra-time.
Cantwell scored the winner by poking into the net from deep inside the area on 103 minutes to complete the most remarkable of fightbacks and send his side through.
