Coleman delighted with Everton goal in Norwich draw

Everton winger Seamus Coleman was delighted with his goal in their 2-2 draw at Norwich City.

The result was a solid start for the Blues and for Coleman, it's satisfying to see his name on the score-sheet.

"The gaffer told me after the first half to get a bit more forward in the second," he told evertonfc.com. "I think the keeper made a save and thankfully it broke to me. I just made sure I kept my head down and ensured it went in.

"I am delighted to score because it has been a while."

While the Toffees had to settle for a point on Roberto Martinez's first competitive outing as Blues boss, the players are delighted to be back in Premier League action.

"Everyone was glad to get going," added Coleman. "It has been a long pre-season. We knew it was going to be a tough game and I think it showed out there with the result. It was a good game.

"It is always hard to take conceding a late goal. But first game of the season, away from home, a point wasn't a bad result."
