The issue is updated
Ullevaal Stadium (Netafsen): There has been excitement about the draw for crucial international matches later in October. On Tuesday, the national team director introduced Solbakken.
There, Oscar Pope was one of the chosen ones.
The 20-year-old has performed well for Manchester City recently. Solbakken says Pope is the player most likely to start for Norway in the upcoming matches.
– It does not make sense for him to play from the beginning or enter. He says it is related to the eleven.
– It’s about finding a balance in this. He was given a League Cup tie against Newcastle, where he played in a different position than he had in pre-season. Lots of support and little progress. Against Newcastle it was a bit of an internal animosity that he improved from. “Maybe we took one or two players out too much,” Solbakin tells Netavesin.
The national team controversy divides experts: – Completely wrong
He says he did not speak to the City manager before the draw was made.
Solbakin said on Monday: – I did not speak with Guardiola, but I expect that he will be satisfied with the development, otherwise he would not have given him opportunities.
The person who wasn’t there was Markus Solbakken. He was with the previous group, but was not taken out this time. The father says he did not talk to his son about taking him out this time.
Amahle Pellegrino did not deserve a place in the squad on Tuesday, despite a good game by Budo/Glimt.
– It’s pure competition, says Solbakken.
Also participating in the squad is star Antonio Nosa, who starred in the two international matches against Georgia and Jordan last month. Since then, he has played just 20 minutes for Club Brugge.
A back injury has caused problems for Noosa in recent weeks. There is uncertainty surrounding suite availability.
– There is a question mark around Noosa about where he will be in the tournament. The national team manager said that he is training, but if he does not play any match before the match, it will be difficult.
Then he explained the situation in detail and directed a clear wish to Ronnie Deila.
– Noosa reported yesterday. He feels fine. So Rooney is Norwegian, so he has to understand that he has to use him a little bit so that we are as well equipped as possible. It can’t be that hard, Solbaken said.
Club Brugge will have a European Cup match against Bodø/Glimt this week.
Norway has seven points after five matches in the European Union qualifiers. This means that the situation regarding being between the top two places does not look very bright.
Both Scotland (15 points from five matches) and Spain (nine points from four matches) have better chances of securing the two outright European Championship places from the group.
Norway will face Cyprus away on October 12, then Spain at home three days later.
Spain receives a visit from Scotland on the same day that the Norwegian national team plays against Cyprus.

Goalkeepers: Matthias Dingland (Brann), Orjan Nyland (Sevilla), Egil Selvik (Haugesund).
