Nations League The Nordics, without Odegaard, start their career in the B League on the wrong foot
Norway, without Odegaard, has not gotten off to a good start in League B – promoted from C – of the Nations League. Lars Lagerback’s team has fallen at home against Austria (1-2).
The game, however, leaves good news for the locals. Erling Braut Haaland scored his first goal in his third caps for seniors. The Dortmund striker closed the gap by scoring the final 1-2 on 65 ‘. I received a Sorloth center from the left and he beat Schlager with a great first-touch cross shot with his left foot.
It was useless. Goals from Michael Gregoritsch on 35 ‘- acrobaticly finished off a great cross from Ulmer – and from Sabitzer from a penalty on 54’ gave victory to Franco Foda’s disciples. Austria, after the draw between Romania and Northern Ireland (1-1), is the leader of Group 1 of League B of the Nations League. Norway will have to come back: it starts at bottom.
