– Bad news doesn’t stop for Norway – NRK Sport – Sports news, results and broadcast schedule

– That he lost the game is good news for our national team, said Thomas Borst.

He is a journalist for the NRC in the Netherlands, and he thinks the Dutch people are happy with today’s news.

– Injuries are quite big news in Holland, and I think a lot of Dutch fans are happy and relieved. “I also think the Ajax fans are happy, because without Haaland, Ajax have a bigger chance of winning the away game against Dortmund in the Champions League,” said Borst.

For Haaland’s injury means he must be out for a minimum of three weeks.

– I have spoken with Dortmund and Erling and the conclusion is that he will miss the next meeting of the national team, this is an injury that will take time to heal. At least 3-4 weeks, maybe longer, said national team doctor Ola Sand to NTB.

He had been in contact with Dortmund on Friday afternoon. There he received the message he dreaded: Norway’s games against Latvia on 13 November and Holland on 16 November went without the super striker.

Do you think Norway can beat the Netherlands without Haaland?

– Very bad news

NRK soccer expert Carl-Erik Torp was on the plane in Poland, ready to take off for Norway after commenting on the women’s national team on Thursday, when Haaland’s push alert came on the line.

– This is very bad news, and the bad news doesn’t stop for Norway and Ståle Solbakken. Now Haaland is finally back and doing well, then this happened… A big loss for Norway for this important match, Torp told NRK.

Thus, Ståle Solbakken continued to flow as manager of the national team. The latest collection, Haaland joins nine other players on the injury list.

– What do you think Solbakken is doing now?

– He may be frustrated and angry now, but then he may move on quickly and think about what he can do. But this is very heavy news for Norway, Torp said.

– Norway’s chances are very weak

NRK pundits believe the Netherlands will be much bigger favorites in what will likely be the group final in Rotterdam on November 16 than against Haaland on the pitch.

– Norway’s chances are greatly weakened by this, unfortunately. It was Haaland who could quickly win the game in Norway’s favor. Norway is missing one of the world’s best strikers, there’s no doubt about that, said Torp.

Dutch journalists say that the Netherlands plays with high lines and defensive and offensive football. Without Haaland, the odds were much greater that the weakness would not be punished.

– Norway with Haaland could have punished the Netherlands on the counter-attack, but his drop out made a big difference and gave the Netherlands a much bigger chance to beat Norway, said Borst.

– Haaland is hard to stop, even for defenders like Virgil van Dijk (Liverpool), Matthjis de Ligt (Juventus) and Stefan de Vrij (Inter).

Dortmund coach Marco Rose announced at a press conference today that Erling Braut Haaland takes the injury seriously.

– He obviously fell. “He’s very happy to be back and feeling really good after the Mainz game,” said Rose.

Haaland:- Will come back stronger

Haaland himself posted this message on Twitter:

– It’s time to focus on healing. I will come back stronger, wrote Haaland.

Haaland has just recovered from injury last weekend and scored twice in Dortmund’s 3-1 win over Mainz. On Tuesday, he and Dortmund were knocked down by Ajax 0-4 in the Champions League.
