Norway National Team

Norway in Euro 2000 Qualify

This will be the Norwegians third visit to the finals. They will be hoping to progress to

the second round for the first time. In 1994 they went out on goal difference in the first round. They

cruised through their qualifying group, scoring twenty one goals and conceding only two. The success

of the Norwegians in recent years can be measured by the number of their players playing abroad.

Coach Egil Olsen is expected to depart after the finals, and is widely tipped to be moving to a Western

club. His expected departure could give the players an incentive to bid him a great farewell. The

Norwegian game is based on discipline, directness and athleticism, but contains room for flair. There

is every chance that Norway will be a very hard side to beat in the finals.
