Some Norwich City fans have been reacting to a tweet from Canaries-focused Twitter account @RewindNorwich, which shared footage of a classic strike from ex-Norwich City left-back Fernando Derveld. 

@RewindNorwich speak about the ex-Norwich man in glowing terms, describing the Dutch left-back as “the original Giovanni van Bronckhorst” in their recent tweet. 

Derveld can be seen originally picking up the ball inside his own half in this classic goal footage, before playing a one-two with a teammate and subsequently exhibiting his dribbling ability to carry the ball onwards into the opposition penalty area and score a goal for his side. 

The footage of this classic Derveld strike has caught the attention of some Canaries fans who have been reacting to @RewindNorwich’s recent tweet. Read the reactions of some Canaries fans to this Derveld footage in the tweets below.

To kick off this 1990s Premier League quiz, which season was the Premier League's inaugural campaign?

What do we think?

Derveld joined the Canaries on a free transfer after leaving Dutch side Haarlem in July 2000. He left the club to join West Brom on loan from January until July in 2001, and subsequently left Carrow Road on a free transfer to move to Danish side Odense BK in August 2001.

It may be fair to say that despite the left-back’s short time at the club, this goal may provide Norwich fans with one memorable highlight from the Dutch defender’s time at Carrow Road.
