Is anyone here going to the stadium to see this? I would like a match programme o two (money paid up front) and the video of the game from Norwegian TV (ditto re money). Is anyone prepared to help?

Here you could ask for a BitTorrent (video) of the game.

Some good, old memories: Norway - Brazil 4-2 (1997)

Apart from Nevland, what alternatives do we have abroad?

It's silly Nevland isn't called up, think he'd make a good pairing with Carew.. but.. Norway really doesn't have any great footballers nowadays.

looks like Dunga wants to build young squad, hungry of succes !!! Players like Elano ,Vagner Love or Carvalho really deserved it :thmbup: hopefully it's not only test match for reserves - I hope Dunga will continue this tactic.

Cementarnica in Vtora Liga 2009/2010
Cementarnica - Miravci 2:0 (Kostadinovski 40'-pen. Naumcevski 43')
Belasica - Cementarnica 1:2 (Markov 24' - Donev 9'-og Trajkovski 47')
Cementarnica - 11 Oktomvri 2:1 (Jakovlevski 15' 77' - Kostadinovski 26'-og)
Cementarnica - Belasica 4:1 (Braga 23' 38' Ristovski 43' Kostadinovski 63' - Jurcevski 88')

PREVIEW
Experimental Brazil face stiff Norwegian test

By Marianne Fronsdal in Oslo
in Reuters
15.08.2006



Brazil will field an experimental side against Norway in their first game since their World Cup disappointment as new coach Dunga builds for the future.

Wednesday's match is the first since the pre-tournament favourites lost in the quarter-finals of the World Cup to France and though Norway fans are eager to see their side's unbeaten run against the South Americans extended to four, Dunga's concerns lie elsewhere.

"The aim is to give the new players a chance and to form a group but the Brazilian national team always love playing and want to have fun and win," said the 42-year-old who took over from Carlos Alberto Parreira.

Dunga's experimental squad includes eight uncapped players and eight survivors from the World Cup but he has not bothered to call up Ronaldinho, Adriano, Kaká or Ronaldo.

The plan might backfire, however, as Norway, who failed to make this year's World Cup and have fallen to 52nd in the FIFA rankings, hold a unique unbeaten record against the five-time world champions.

Norway shocked Brazil with a 2-1 World Cup victory in France in the opening round in 1998 and also beat them 4-2 in 1997 and drew 1-1 in 1988, both in friendlies.

Norway's coach Aage Hareide has named all his best players for the game and says Norway will not hold back in front of a packed house in Oslo.

But he also acknowledges that the Sept. 2 European Championship qualifier against Hungary that begins their Group C campaign is more important.

"We are very content to play a dress rehearsal against Brazil, there is nothing that is better than that," Hareide said. "The Brazil match gives us a chance to test what we will look like in Budapest."

Hareide has recalled Manchester United striker Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to the squad despite complaints from Manchester United Alex Ferguson that Solskjaer is not yet fit after suffering various injuries for most of the past three seasons.

Solskjaer, 33, last played for Norway against Wales in 2004.

"Solskjaer will play from start but he will not play 90 minutes," Hareide said.

Since naming his initial squad Hareide has lost two players due to injury -- Southampton defender Claus Lundekvam and Malmö FF defender Jon Inge Hoiland.

Probable Norway team: Thomas Myhre; John Arne Riise, Erik Hagen, Brede Hangeland, Marius Johnsen; Christian Grindheim, Kristofer Haestad, Morten Gamst Pedersen, Fredrik Stromstad; John Carew, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

Brazil squad:

Goalkeepers - Gomes (PSV Eindhoven, Netherlands), Fábio (Cruzeiro).

Defenders - Cicinho (Real Madrid, Spain), Maicon (Inter Milan, Italy), Gilberto (Hertha Berlin, Germany), Marcelo (Fluminense), Lúcio (Bayern Munich, Germany), Juan (Bayer Leverkusen, Germany), Alex (PSV Eindhoven, Netherlands), Edmilson (Barcelona, Spain), Luisão (Benfica, Portugal).

Midfielders - Gilberto Silva (Arsenal, England), Elano (Shakhtar Donetsk, Ukraine), Daniel Carvalho (CSKA Moscow, Russia), Morais (Vasco da Gama), Jónatas (Flamengo)

Forwards - Duda Cearense (CSKA Moscow, Russia), Fred (Olympique Lyon, France), Robinho (Real Madrid, Spain), Vagner Love (CSKA Moscow, Russia), Julio Baptista (Real Madrid, Spain), Wagner (Cruzeiro).

Frode Johnsen.... LMAO J/K!!

Seriously though, there's no need to search abroad. Nevland was an average+ striker in Norway. That he has found the net more times in the course of a season in Holland than he ever did in Norway doesn't mean that he's what we need.

Rushfeldt for example can score goals on the NT just as well being a Tromsø-player as an Austria Wien-player. There are many skilled players in Norway, now if we only had a manager to find them.

Like why the hell is Rambekk and Wæhler called up at rightback? What exactly is Hareide thinking? It isn't their positions in their clubs, and watching them play you easily understand why! The defenders Hareide picks, except for Riise, make Norway's backline look like utter crap. From what they've shown neither Wæhler nor Hangeland has the quality Norway needs in central defense, and the fullbacks who actually know how to play in that position and does it well gets left out.

This is only my personal oppinion, but if we looked something like this based on their quality I'd expect this lineup to do the best job in the ECQ (with a proper manager mind you)
Opdal/Myhre
Dahl/Storbæk Hagen/Kippe Riseth/Soma Riise/Johnsen
Valencia/Strømstad Andresen/Grindheim Hæstad/Larsen Gamsten/Vaagan Moen
Solskjær/Årst
Carew/Braaten

I can't wait to see Solskjær in action again, no matter what the finishing score will look like. GG tomorrow.
