Watch Slovenia-Norway on TV 2 and TV 2 Sumo Friday from 8.30 pm (start game 8.45 pm)
On Friday, the Norwegian national team will play the first of two crucial Nations League matches when Slovenia is on the opposite court in Ljubljana.
Landscape manager Lars Lagerbäck must have resisted the fall of both Joshua King and Kristoffer Ajer, two of the team's main players. At the training session of Tuesday in the Slovenian capital, there were two other Swedish men
who caught a glimpse of his absence.
Neither Tarik Elyounoussi nor Sander Berge were in the field of training together with the rest of the team. Elyounoussi left the field with what could look like a stretch injury when his AIK secured the championship in Sweden on Sunday
Berge recently returned after a long injury.
The national media director Svein Graff tells TV2 that both the former self and the medical device are optimistic to play the game on Friday, while Berges absence only relates to a late game on Sunday.
The midfielder has suffered a serious injury, but has now fully recovered.
The expert Jesper Mathisen of TV 2 is nevertheless skeptical about what he saw during the 20 minutes that were open for the training of the national team on Tuesday.
"Of course it's not ideal and if they were 100 percent ready, they would both be on the field today, but it's been a long time to fight, and because it hurt king, it might be the most important thing
that Tarik gets better. Centrally Henriksen and Selnæs worked very well lately, Selnæs was perhaps the best player, so in the midfield of the middle Lagerbäck has seen such a luxury problem, says TV 2's expert.
Norway meets Slovenia for the national competition in Ljubljana on Friday. The Lars Lagerbäck team is at the top of the list before the last two matches, but it is very small that separates Bulgaria. Both meet Slovenia and Cyprus in their last matches, and
The person who takes the most points becomes the group winner.
By taking Norway and Bulgaria equally, the total difference in goals is determined – as long as there are no losses for Cyprus and none of them wins against Slovenia.
