Norwich City kicked off pre-season with a 2-2 draw against Arminia Bielefeld and now you can watch the key moments from that eventful friendly in Germany.

The Canaries stepped up their preparations for the Premier League with a friendly against Bundesliga II side Arminia Bielefeld in Gutersloh on Sunday.

New boys Ralf Fahrmann, Patrick Roberts and Josip Drmic were all in the starting XI but it was the German side who claimed the lead in the 30th minute, after Louis Thompson and Ben Godfrey had limped off for City and forced a defensive reshuffle.

Five minutes later Arminia were reduced to 10 men in a feisty first half and Dennis Srbeny quickly took advantage of a defensive mistake to equalise with a good finish.

Swiss international Drmic then claimed the lead before the break from the penalty spot but Bielefeld claimed a draw with a fine strike of their own with four minutes remaining.
