Tonight they will once again try to create magic in front of the Ullevaal crowd. How often do they talk together, so they can shine in each other's company on the field?

-We are both good and smart footballers, and we understand each other. It's a lot of instinct. There are little comments here and there on the pitch that can help us achieve that. We are good friends. We talk a lot together. But just on the pitch, I feel like there's more natural instinct and understanding.

-So I think everyone is a little worried that they are the ones who will save Norway. The two rely on a team that works together and doesn't concede ridiculous late goals. They will achieve great things for Norway in the next ten years.
