SLOVENIA – NORWAY 1-1

CYPROS – BULGARIA 1-1

LJUBLJANA: Four minutes before full time Bjørn Maars Johnsen rose high. Ujung banned posts from Håvard Nordtveit in the goal.

So it's 1-1, and Norway are one point ahead of Bulgaria, which is surprising under Cyprus.

However, the drama isn't over yet. To just before the end, Bulgaria's Nikolaj Dimitrov was settled on penalties.

Norwegian and Bulgarian scores are as many points before the final round of the League of Nations group. Among other things, it's similar, but Norway has a better goal difference.

Johnsen sneaks past the interview zone with an ice bag around the right ankle:

The pain after the smell he got at the venue was so large that he had to cancel it

but its purpose can prove very important for Norway.

"We are disappointed not to win. But that point can be very important," Mohamed "Moi" Elyounoussi told Aftenposten after the match.

– We have it in our own hands. If we win against Cyprus and Bulgaria don't score too many goals, we win the group. We will go and score three points, so we hope that is enough, "said Martin Ødegaard, who arrived after 56 minutes.

The pain after the smell he got into the match was so great that he had to disturb the interview round.

But the goal can prove very important for Norway.

"We are disappointed not to win. But that point can be very important," Mohamed "Moi" Elyounoussi told Aftenposten after the match.

Played on results

After the Johnsen equation, several Norwegian players ran to the bench to check what position there was in the Bulgarian match. Then they were told that Cyprus was leading 1-0.

Only after the match did they realize Bulgaria's final settlement.

"We heard that it was 1-0 for Cyprus, and then it was important not to be stupid and completely opposed to the end," said Omar Elabdellaoui.

"This is a tight group, and I think we have done well. We might be able to win, we are in the race. Now we will play their results in the final match and respond to positions in the second match, like today," said Lars Lagerbäck Landscape Manager to TV 2.

Who gets the chance for an extra Euro is decided Monday night.

"This will be a thriller," said Håvard Nordtveit.

Early retreat

However, it began in the worst way imaginable. With an early Slovenian score.

The thought went to October 11, 2013. This is the last time the Norwegian national team in Slovenia. 125 kilometers from here, at the Ljudski stadium in Maribor, Per-Mathias Høgmo got a brutal start as manager of the Norwegian national team.

– We are getting weak. The first 15 minutes before they scored our goal badly. But we remain calm. We had several chances and were satisfied, but 1-1 was okay. We have a chance, said Lagerbäck to TV 2.

Lagerbäck was worried about the development of football: "For me, it's a little imagination when young players can produce 100 million a year

Ahead of the match, the project is labeled "New Norway". Facade after the match is 0-3 and hopes are breaking up for World Cup qualifiers.

Then that is the point of Milivoje Novakovic who destroyed the Norwegian defense night.

At Stozice Stadium on Friday night, 1863 days later, was the name of Benjamin Verbic.

Eight minutes into the match, Slovenia seems to have managed to get past the Norwegian defense. Opposing the movement, three Slovenes joined quickly, and thus Norway was played. Verbic has plenty of room to drop the ball in the longest corner.

Runner Almenning Jarstein is shameless. Slovenia 1-0.

The Dutch editor believes fans will switch to Ødegaard. Then it turns out.

Giant opportunity

Norway was shaken, but outside the turn, they fought back in the game.

In particular, Mohamed & # 39; Moi & # 39; Elyounoussi takes more grip, with ignition rates seemingly increasing every minute. The ball artists are good and angry with each other.

And after half an hour, the opportunity is difficult to understand not to the destination. Elabdellaoui's head was saved on the line, where he danced along the chalk what felt like eternity – without Ola Kamara or Tarik Elyounoussi able to hit the ball on goal.

– I'm sure it entered. That's good from the back defenders. It's a shame that there are no goals, "Elabdellaoui told Aftenposten.

"I didn't run straight, but I had to run around the guard. If not, I could only enter it," Kamara explained.

Only after that is there a new big opportunity. "Moi" got all the time in the world to put the ball in the goal almost from the penalty spot, but the hit was weak and the ball slid far beyond.

He is behind one of football's biggest surprises. Now he is Stefan Johansen's new boss

Destination canceled

Norway must be calm, but there is still no reason to be satisfied with the show.

Ten minutes in the second half, Martin Ødegaard was replaced by Stefan Johansen. Could it be that the 19-year-old opened a compact Slovenia?

After only 70 minutes, he took on the task of completing himself. And the finish was good, but guard Vid Belec made himself red carded for a foul.

Then it narrows in the opposite direction. The host crowd was not impressed, hoping for a goal for Jarstein, and celebrating the home party celebrating. Only after a few seconds, it seems to them that the goal was canceled.

Then Norway began a counterattack. Some red players ran against the goal while the entire Slovenian team celebrated at the end.

After the match, they told the Norwegian players that they were allowed to start the game before the referee suddenly changed his mind.

Instead, John's equalization came. Thus, the League of Nations drama continued at full strength until late at night on Monday night.

Then there is Cyprus – Norway and Bulgaria – Slovenia.
