Welcome back, @nic.munch
Focused the entire game Nicolai is our Man of the Match. He supported the attack several times by overlapping, dribbling thru the lines, and making combination passes.
His finish on goal was professionally done. He worked by shielding the ball with his body from the opponent and kicked on the opposite side of the goalkeeper to give us the winning goal and the important 3 points on the road.
