Striker James Norwood took just four minutes to open his Ipswich Town goal account yesterday – and you can watch his strike here.

Norwood, signed after bagging 32 goals for Tranmere Rovers in their promotion-winning campaign last season, levelled the scores following Oliver Fink's opener in Town's 4-1 defeat to Fortuna Dusseldorf in the Interwetten Cup.

Despite the loss, Town's newest striker produced flashes of what he is all about, showing good movement, commitment and the eye for goal which prompted Paul Lambert to make his move for a player who scored 32 goals for Tranmere last season.
