Teemu Pukki full of pride after Norwich hat-trick

Teemu Pukki struck a hat-trick as Norwich City stunned Newcastle United 3-1 on Saturday.

He scored in the 4-1 defeat at Liverpool last week but he oozed Premier League quality with three fine finishes in his side's first Premier League game back at Carrow Road.

"Of course this is one of the best games I've had in English football," he said. "A hat-trick in the Premier League I wouldn't even have dreamt about a couple of years ago."

Pukki's stunning volley set Norwich on their way in the first half, lashing into the top corner after Newcastle failed to clear a corner.

The home side were buoyant and Pukki doubled their lead in the 63rd minute when he clinically finished off a neat passing move.

He then rounded off the scoring after Todd Cantwell caught the visitors' defence cold, taking over to slot his third past a helpless Martin Dubravka.
