Norway has created a new lot for the match with Austria
The Norwegian players were headed to the airport on Saturday for the charter flight to Bucharest, when they were informed by the authorities that such a trip would violate Norway’s strict virus spreading measures, because one player tested positive.
The match against Romania was canceled and the players called up left Oslo on Sunday morning, so the Norwegian federation tried to form a new team for Wednesday’s game against Austria.
In a statement released on Sunday evening, the Norwegian federation (NFF) declared that the match with Austria will take place according to schedule, the new team, led by the coach of the Under 21 national team, Leif Gunnar Smerud, will be presented at a press conference on Monday.
The players selected for Wednesday’s match will fly directly to Oslo, enter a bad quarantine, at an airport hotel before leaving for Vienna, NFF indicated.
Norway will probably lose the game with Romania, 0-3
Austria, who beat Northern Ireland 2-1 in Vienna on Sunday, are in first place in Group 1 of League B with 12 points, followed by Norway with 9 points.
Agerpres, which he quotes Reuters, writes that Norway will likely lose the game with Romania 0-3, but still have a chance to win the group if they beat Austria by at least two goals.
“There have been challenging decisions to take, but we are happy that the match can be played, both from a sporting point of view and in consideration of the obligations towards UEFA and the competition.”NFF Secretary General Pal Bjerketvedt said.
Winning the group would mean for Norway to be promoted to League 1 of the League of Nations and to have an easier trajectory in the preliminary rounds of the 2022 World Cup. Norway has not participated in a World Cup since 1998, like Romania, by the way.
