Norway v Netherlands Preview, Women’s 2013 European Championship, Sunday 14th July 2013

The result against Iceland must of come as a kick in the teeth for Norway after dominating the first half and with scoring early in the 26th minute. They could of doubled the lead soon after with a Gulbransen effort but headed wide of the goal, and then with missed efforts fired into the side netting and Ada Hegerberg’s shot fired across the face of the goal. Norway must of been hoping for an easy result here after Iceland failed to secure a point in the group stage four years ago. With Norway’s history in this competition you would expect them to go far, but with a run of poor form coming into the UEFA Women’s Championships with 4 straight loses you just never know.

The Netherlands will be very pleased with their efforts against reigning champions Germany, with making sure they did their homework which allowed them to frustrate the Germans. The 2nd half could of given Germany a shock with the FC Malmo striker Manon Melis firing wide of the mark. With every section of the pitch doing their part you have to commend the defense who played exceptionally well and controlled possession at times. Netherlands form as of late hasn’t been too bad with 3 wins and 1 loss, and with making it to the semi-finals last time you could see them go all the way this time after the performance against Germany.

Norway v Netherlands Team News

Norway Team News:

Coach Even Jostein Pellerud will be extremely disappointed with the last result especially as it was an avoidable 87th minute penalty, and with spot kicks being missed a plenty so far in this competition he must of been hoping this was another miss. The only positive to take out of this match was it wasn’t a loss, as that seems to be the only results the Norway team seem to be experiencing as of late.

Netherlands Team News:

Coach Roger Reijner and his side will be extremely happy with themselves after the result against Germany, who held them to a 0 – 0 draw and could of even pinched a late winner but sadly firing wide in the 2nd half. Netherlands will be full of confidence heading into Sundays game against Norway after their recent slip of form with 4 loses and a draw against Iceland.
