Daniel Farke's squad are back from their pre-season tour of Germany's North Rhine-Westphalia region, where they kicked their pre-season into gear with a 2-2 draw against Bundesliga II side Arminia Bielfeld, thanks to goals from Dennis Srbeny and Josip Drmic.

They continued their Premier League preparation with a behind-closed-doors friendly against fourth-tier club SC Bonner on Tuesday night, thanks to an Adam Idah brace and a goal apiece for Onel Hernandez and Teemu Pukki.

The Canaries then concluded their time in Germany with a step-up in quality against Bundesliga opposition in Schalke, at the Frimo Stadion in Lotte, with Teemu Pukki and Moritz Leitner securing a 2-1 win over David Wagner's side.
