Will play Wales and North Ireland
Norway’s national soccer team begins preparing for the European championship already.
There was no European Championship finals for Norway, Wales or Northern Ireland this year, but all are looking forward to next autumn’s World Cup qualifier. Beginning as early as
February, Drillo’s men on the Norwegian National Soccer Team will begin preparations for what will hopefully end up in a trip to Brazil for the World Cup in 2014.
“Now we have two opponents who belong to the mid-level in Europe, and this is the types of opponents that are beneficial for us to play against in the preparations for the World Cup qualifier next fall,” says the soccer team manager Nils Johan Semb.
Saturday, November 12, at 4:00 p.m. Norwegian time, the team Wales will play Norway in Cardiff. The Welsh made a strong effort towards the end of this year’s qualification.
“After a troublesome start to the qualifier, Wales was a contender towards the end, with three strong wins and a narrow loss to England. They knocked out our next World Cup qualifier opponent Switzerland 2-0,” Semb said.
Norway and Wales met last in 2008, when the Welsh won 3-0 at home.
February 29, Northern Ireland is hosting Norway at Windsor Park in Belfast.
