Match preview

2021 International Friendly, Norway will play against with Luxembourg at home. The game remained goalless until Sergej Milinkovic-Savic scored what appeared to be the winner for the visitors in the 82nd minute, but Mathias Normann would go on to equalise six minutes later to take the encounter to extra time, in which Milinkovic-Savic found the net again to send Norway out. Despite possessing an exciting crop of talent, the Lions have now failed to qualify for a major tournament since the 2000 World Cup, when they were knocked out in the group stage. However, Stale Solbakken's side did begin their World Cup qualifying campaign in a positive manner in the last international break, as they picked up six points from their opening three matches. They began with a 3-0 away victory over Gibraltar, as Alexander Sorloth, Kristian Thorstvedt and Jonas Svensson all got on the scoresheet, before an Ozan Tufan brace and a Caglar Soyuncu goal fired Turkey to a convincing 3-0 win in the following match. The Lions bounced back from that though, as Sorloth netted the only goal of the game in a 1-0 win away against Montenegro in the third game. Norway will now attempt to continue building form with another strong international break, starting with a clash against Luxembourg in Spain. In their most recent international game in March, Luxembourg suffered a 3-1 home defeat to Portugal in their second game of the World Cup qualifying campaign.

Gerson Rodrigues opened the scoring for the hosts on the half-hour mark, but Diogo Jota levelled the scoring before goals from Cristiano Ronaldo and Joao Palhinha condemned Luc Holtz's side to a defeat. However, they did kick their campaign off with a victory before that, as The Red Lions defeated Republic of Ireland 1-0 away from home. That game looked set to end goalless, until Rodrigues popped up with the winner in the 85th minute to seal all three points, giving his side a positive start to the qualifying stage. While they have again failed to qualify for the European Championships, Luxembourg have shown positive signs in recent years, and they will look to continue their general upwards trajectory with what would be an impressive victory on Wednesday before they take on Scotland later in the week.
