The young Canaries were trailing 1-0 at half-time but the game turned on its head in the second stanza, with the Republic of Ireland U18 star scoring in the 58th, 63rd and 68th minutes.

Adam Idah was delighted with his maiden hat-trick at Carrow Road in a big tournament for youth teams in England.

He told canaries.co.uk: “It’s my first hat-trick for the club on my first appearance at Carrow Road. I’m delighted about that.

“I was playing locally back in Ireland and one of the scouts came to watch me. I think I scored a hat-trick in that game, came over here on trial and scored a hat-trick against Peterborough.

“I scored a hat-trick recently against Azerbaijan too so hopefully I can keep going! Once I score one, I get more confident.”

The 16-year-old Adam Idah joined Norwich City from Irish club Corinthians in the summer of 2017.
