Norway August 2017

3 games in Norway including a visit to the Arctic.





5th August 2017  Rosenborg 4 Kristiansund 1  Eliteserien  17,214

Via Oslo to Trondheim where it was somewhat festive with a medieval market, nice riverfront and a vibrant centre.

The home side consolidated top position mostly thanks to Bendtner and Helland.







6th August  Tromso 1 Molde 2  Eliteserien 3,812 (c. 40 away)

Up in the Arctic, on a pleasant Sunday afternoon, Solksjaer's Molde edged the home side thanks to a winner from Erling Haaland (son of Alf-Inge)

An idyllic setting, at least in the summer, with wooden houses, the Arctic cathedral and snow-capped mountains in the background.






7th August  Stromsgodset 2 Valerenga 0  Eliteserien  6,836 (c. 300 away)

Back in Drammen, near Oslo, this was a lively encounter won with two first half strikes.

Enjoyment of the home crowd characterised by rhythmic clapping but not so much by the away ultras.
