A number of Norwegian women’s footballers are participating in the quarter-finals of the UEFA Champions League. – Very good for Norway, says national team manager Heje Reis (53).


On Tuesday, you will be at the Olympic Stadium when Roma meet Barcelona in the first quarter-final.

– I haven’t seen ‘Caro’ (Caroline Graham Hansen) for Barcelona or Emilie Hafey (Roma) on anything other than TV, so now we’re taking a chance and we’ll see them in action, as well as Ingrid Serstad Engen (Barcelona), says Haig-Reis.

It’s a historic match, and for the first time, women’s footballers will be playing in Rome at the great Olympic stadium.

– It will be very big, I feel it now. On Monday, 35,000 tickets were already sold out, Emily Hafey tells VG.

SUPER SEASON: Emilie Haavi and Roma are ready for the big game against Barcelona.

– It’s been a dream season so far. We had ambitions, but not the expectation that we would be eight points up in the series, be in a cup final and actually win one cup. We’ve made great strides, and now we’ll see how we stand up to one of the best teams in the world,” says Hafey, happy to have the national team manager in place.

– I think it can be an experience for the haig as well, with so many spectators and two women’s teams in the Olympic Stadium. The immediate thought after the draw was that Barcelona wasn’t the team we were now hoping for, but it’s going to be a very exciting week with the second leg at the Camp Nou. I think people are just looking forward to it.

– It will be very good for Norway and the national team. One thing is that these are players who are leaders for Norway and also have key roles for their club teams, so playing at the highest level possible will be beneficial for the national team. Then we’ll be better prepared for the restroom this summer, says Hege Riise.

– It will be the strength that many will have to play at the highest level of reference in the run-up to the World Cup before we start our line-up and ‘prep’ after the break. It’s a very nice recipe.
