Open Nordic Championship in Sweden (Quelle: fotball.no) Auf diesen Beitrag antworten Zitatantwort auf diesen Beitrag erstellen Diesen Beitrag editieren/löschen Diesen Beitrag einem Moderator melden       Zum Anfang der Seite springen

The Under-23s are starting their campaign in the Open Nordic Championship in Sweden today. National team chief Gøril Kringen thinks it is an important tournament for the players. Today Norway have a match against England.

Norway has some goals to compete for but the most important is experience. "We have seen in the last few years that this is an important arena for the players. The step from Under-19 to the A-team is a large one, so this is an important chance to match the U-23s against the best in the world. The players will use the tournament to gain experience and to show they are ready at this level", said the team chief, who points out that several of today's A-team squad have played U-23 matches.

She thinks the opponents Norway will meet are high-class. "We have had good results against England but they are a good team. Switzerland are some way below A-team standard, but the USA are the world's best Under-23 team. They are the team we really want to try ourselves against", said Kringen.

Norway's women met the USA and England, along with Germany, at La Manga earlier in the year. It ended with a 1-0 loss against the Germans, a 2-0 defeat to the USA, but a solid 5-0 win against the girls from the football island. Now the team chief hopes that the team will get to work right from the kickoff. "At La Manga we used the first two games to get up to the level. It's important that we take up where we left off against England, because we played well, and that we get a good start to the competition", said Kringen.

She thinks the team will tun up better prepared now than they did last time. "Training went well yesterday. Most of the players are in good teams in the Toppserien, and have experience that ensures that we come into the tournament better than we did at La Manga".

The trainer thinks that improvement is need in the attacking play. "That is where we have the biggest chance to develop. The key is to make the right choices in match situations. The players must use the time they have to create the situations", she said.

Defence is the team's biggest strength. "We let few goals through, which shows we have a good structure at the back and good collective skills. We are tricky to score against", concluded Gøril Kringen

National team trainer Gøril Kringen wanted a good start at the Open Nordic Cup. Norway Under-23s achieved that with a 2-0 win over England.

Norway won 5-0 at La Manga in the winter, and that meant that England's team turned up wanting revenge today. "It was a tight and tough match. We started well for the first 20 minutes, but we met an English team that were extremely difficult to lock up. They were after a better result than last time and worked really hard", said Kringen.

In the second half Norway did not manage to create much but in the 77th minute the girls got a penalty. Gry Tofte Ims had never taken a penalty in her career before, but placed the ball securely in the goal. England pressed on after the goal but did not manage to create many definite chances. Instead it was Norway who counterattacked two minutes before the end, and Aimee Edris finished the match off with the 2-0 goal.

Gøril Kringen was well pleased with the Norwegian performance. "I am most pleased that the players were wholehearted in everything they did. They stood firm, worked for each other, and gave practically nothing away. It was a very solidly played game", she said.

The team has had the start they hoped for. "It was important to get to work straight away. It gives us a little working space for the next match, and I hope we will be equally professional against Sweden", said the former international who has an Olympic gold medal from Sydney.

The next opponents are Switzerland, with the match on Thursday at 19.00. Kringen admits she knows little about them. "I don't know much, but I had some feedback from their match against the USA. They have turned up with almost a full international A-team here. Even though they are not one of the best teams, it will be exciting to see how we tackle them", concluded the trainer.

Today the Under-23 national team had tough opposition against Switzerland in the Open Nordic Championship. The score was 2-2 after full time, but Norway lost the penalty shootout 4-2.

Switzerland is perhaps not the world's biggest football nation, but the Under-23s were well in gear when they tried themselves against Norway, and won. Trainer Gøril Kringen was impressed. "It was a tough match. We met a team with a lot of good individual players. They had a quick and skilful striker pair. In midfield they had players who were good one-on-one and were good at playing up to the strikers. They had high speed and good relational skills. Our defence had to look sharp", said Kringen.

After the 2-0 win over England Kringen said that she did not know much about the Swiss team, but she did not think the Norwegians were caught napping by their good opponents. "We had reports from their first match, and they were as good as expected. They had individual players of international class, and it was an experience for us", she said.

The Norwegian players did not hang together too well in the first half, and keeper Runa Barli had to come up with several good saves. After a while Switzerland scored, but Norway answered with two quick goals in the 49th and 51st minute by Line Smørsgård and June Pedersen (a colleague of Swiss striker Ramona Bachmann at Umeå). From then on Kringen's team controlled the game well, but just before the final whistle Switzerland were able to equalise. In the ensuing penalty shootout it was the land of yodelling that drew the longest straw.

"I think we had control at 2-1 but they moved many players forward and pressed us towards the end. It was really hectic at the finish. If we win our next match the penalties will not mean anything, but it was a fine experience for those that scored. I told those that missed to forget it. It's something that happens in shootouts - there's always someone in the sin-book", said the chief.

In spite of the loss there were positives. "In the first half we were too restless with the ball, but in the second half we settled down better. We scored two fine goals and created several chances. We succeeded in a lot of attacking moves", said Kringen.

On Saturday the Under-23s meet the USA in the last group match in Sweden. It will be a tough battle against one of the world's best Under-23 teams. "The USA beat Switzerland 1-0 and England 3-0. It is a very solid team, one of the best in the world at thius level. The players will get a real teat against them", said Kringen.

But she was aggressive. "We have met them before and know what to do against them. On one of our best days it's possible to beat the USA. We are going for a win to take a place in the Final", said Gøril Kringen.

Switzerland - Norway 2-2 (0-0) (4-2 on penalties)
Stadium: Avestavallen, Avesta.
Ref: Helen Sutcher, England
Yellow card: Marina Keller, Sveits.
Goals: 1-0 Ramona Bachmann (47), 1-1 Line Smørsgård (49), 1-2 June Pedersen (51), 2-2 Sandra Betschart (90).

Janne Stange, Kine Bjerk, Nora Holstad Berge, Trude Johannessen (Kristin Jonvik 79) -
