Norwich striker Hooper happy to keep cool for decisive spotkick

Norwich City striker Gary Hooper was delighted to convert their critical penalty in victory over West Ham United.

The Canaries fought back from a goal down to win 3-1.

"To be fair I was practicing them on Friday when the gaffer told me I was on them," Hooper told the Pink 'Un. "I stepped up to take it and put it down the middle, so it was a good penalty under the circumstances.

"There was always going to be a bit of pressure on it, first goal for the club and we needed to win this. But I just put it down the middle and we kicked on. It was a great free-kick by Snoddy and then Leroy finished it off."
