This is the squad for the U21 European Championship – destroying two shooting stars
On Wednesday, Under-21 coach Leif Gunnar Smerud presented the squad that will represent Norway at the European Commission in Romania and Georgia.
Perhaps the biggest surprise was Benfica’s Andreas Schjelderup who was left out. In addition, Kristian Arnstad, who has earned a lot of trust from Belgium Anderlecht, has also been devastated.
Here’s the squad:

Midfielder: Sivert Heggheim Mannsverk – Molde, Johan Hove – Groningen, Christos Zafeiris – Slavia Prague, Markus Solbakken – Viking, Hugo Vetlesen – Bodø/Glimt, Tobias Christensen – Fehérvár, Oscar Bobb – Manchester City, Håkon Evjen – Brøndby, Osame Sahraoui – Heerenveen, Emil Konradsen Ceide – Sassuolo
