By Alex Stevens

Kalvin Phillips and Lewie Coyle have hailed Ronaldo Vieira on Twitter for his stunning winner in Leeds’ 3-2 triumph against Norwich on Saturday.

Vieira’s long-range effort in stoppage time sealed a memorable victory for Garry Monk’s side after they came from a goal down at Carrow Road.

It was the first Leeds goal for the 18-year-old midfielder, who was a 72nd minute substitute on Saturday.

Vieira’s fellow academy products Phillips, 20, and Coyle, 21, took to their personal Twitter accounts in the aftermath of the triumph to express their delight.

Vieira has made a major impact under Monk this season, making 13 appearances, nine of which have been starts.

Leeds’ seventh win from 10 league matches, and their third in a row, lifts them to sixth place in the Championship and into the play-off positions for the first time this season.
