Won 8-0, Norwegian Carved History of the 21st Century
Norwegian national team appear surprising. Of the nine World Cup 2018 qualifying matches of the European zone that rolled on Thursday (5/10/2017) or Friday early morning local time, Norway became the team that scored the most goals.
Unmitigated, Norway won eight goals without reply to host San Marino in Group C match at the Stadio Olimpico, Serravalle. Lars Lagerback’s squad scored by Mark Henriksen (8 ‘), Joshua King (14′-penalty, 17’), Mohamed Elyounoussi (40 ‘, 48’, 68 ‘), Ole Kristian Selnaes (59’) and Martin Linnes (87 ‘).
From the San Marino goalkeeper, Joshua King is certainly the most familiar in the ear. King is a striker of English Premier League side Bournemouth, who currently slumped in 19th place.
Role as a team attack motor, King managed to bring Norway carve history. As quoted from Squawka, Norway for the first time packing eight goals in the World Cup qualifying party in the 21st century!
However, the chance of Norway to qualify for the 2018 World Cup in Russia has vanished. With one more game left, Norway’s 10-point collection is no longer possible to pursue Germany (27) and Northern Ireland (19), which occupy the top two positions.
