Norway Women’s Football Team is not one of the strongest, but still, they have the skills and ability to fight against big teams like USA and Germany.
Norway used to be an attacking team who were later thrashed by the England team last year in Euros 2022 by 8-0 in the knockout stage, which made them change their coach Martin Sjogren.
Hege Riise is the new coach for them, and she is more of a defensive coach who is now taking care more of defensive work rather than being more into attacking.
The good thing about the Norway team is that they have not lost any qualifying match and scored around 42 goals which is just amazing for any team. They also just conceded 2 goals which is quite amazing defensive work.
Frida Maanum is one of their players who knows when to score and when to assist, as she did in the all-qualifying round. She scored 6 goals and gave 4 assists.
The Chelsea attacking midfielder Guro Reiten is one of the playmakers for the Norway team who played every match of 2023 and was on the pitch for a long. She has the ability to read the play and learn how to progress.
Norway Women’s football team has to be up together to fight against the big teams like the USA, and for that, their midfield area needs to work together.
