sweden_norgeEli Landsem was reasonably happy with the performance of Norway, despite the defeat in the friendly in Sweden. It was the first step in the new construction of a team for the 2011 World Cup. "It's important to play games like this, we learn and get answers, I'm very satisfied with what we did today.

Sweden is a great team and for this reason it was a good test. I think girls think this Sweden is a team we can beat, "he continued.

The coach had predicted this would be an experimental match, and they started with an 3-5-2 breakout formation. "The basic idea was to put pressure on where we wanted it, and you can take their attackers against an 4-4-2, it worked pretty well, we created some chances and we had a couple of good combinations," he said . Sweden had a good start to the game. Already after four minutes, Norway was unable to avoid a corner and Jessica Landström took advantage of putting the ball into the goal. Norway did not worry about the situation, played and created useful opportunities. But Sweden was able to make better use of the first minutes, more effective in the first half with Lotta Schelin who scored. "We took the second goal in a stupid way - there's something we have to review," said the coach.

The second half did not change the games on court and we had to wait for eleven minutes from the end when Isabell Herlovsen gave a new hope to Norway with a nice goal. Norway went close to the second goal but instead it was Lotta Schelin who took advantage of a good opportunity and brought the final score of 3-1 with his second goal three minutes from the end.

"The match was a reversal of actions, the Swedes have world-class strikers and we have definitely figured well against them," said Eli Landsem.
