The Under-17s are in England this week at a training camp in Coventry.  On Wednedsday and Friday they will play training matches against England.

"We are here to train and play, and see if there has been progress since we played in October.  In the autumn we played one bad match but the girls performed well generally.  So we are going to see if they have taken any steps forward.  Two matches against England will give us good international comparisons", said the trainer, Tarjei Smågesjø.

Much of the focus will be on attacking.  "We need to be good defensively, as we have been, and we have good individual skills.  Now we will focus on structure and attack", said Smågesjø.

Unlike Norway, England made it through to the next round of qualification for the European Cup.  The trainer thinks the English girls will be good opponents.  "They went to the next round, but on the other hand they have had a big loss to France.  This is perhaps not the best year they have had but we will see.  Our goal is to win both matches", he said.

Six new players have joined the squad since the autumn.  Smågesjø thinks there is a lot of potential.  "One third of the squad is under age.  Also we have a kernel of ten or twelve players who are starting to become experienced international players.  They are an exciting crew", he said.

He thinks the squad has broad experience in the leagues.  "Seven players are in Toppserien clubs, and there are some others who could quickly step up to first division or Topperien level".

Wednesday's match will be at 14.00, Friday's at 10.30.

Draw against England
« Reply #2 on: February 24, 2011, 11:02:38 AM »
The Under-17s started the season with a 1-1 draw against England.  They deserved to win the match.  

This was the first of two matches in England and the team showed that their form is developing.  "We were good.  We played good football even though we weren't effective enough.  We could have scored more goals", said trainer Tarjei Smågesjø.  "The players have improved since last year.  They have a more grown-up style", he said.

Smågesjø is using the week to sharpen up the attack structure, and thinks the players followed the day's plan quite well.  "We stayed high and used the midfield spaces to get through behind the defence.  We were strong in duels and played together with a good tempo and good mobility.  We still need to produce more chances and be cool enough to place the ball in goal", he said.

Norway had the worst possible start against England when they shipped a goal after only four minutes, but it took only another three minutes for Ada Hegerberg to equalise.  "We had a bad start but raised ourselves.  We were better in the second half", said the trainer.

Although England went to the next round of qualification for the European Cup, Smågesjø was not seriously impressed with them.  "We played against two teams, because they substituted seven players at half time.  In the first half they threatened us and we had to battle.  After half time we were on top".  

On Thursday the team were preparing for Friday's match.  "It's extremely important to rest and recover.  Then we will do a little work on the plans for tomorrow", said Tarjei Smågesjø.

"Very promising for the future"
« Reply #8 on: February 27, 2011, 11:53:39 AM »
The Under-17s had a good match and battled to a 3-1 win in Saturday's training match against England.

"We met what was really a better England team today.  They played more directly, and substituted fewer players than last time.  They gave us a tough match so it's all the more credit to our players.  In the second half it was a one-way street for us.  This is very promising for the future", said the trainer Tarjei Smågesjø to fotball.no.

Kristin Haugstad, Caroline Graham Hansen and Ada Stolsmo Hegerberg scored the goals.  "We started well and scored first.  Then we made the classic mistake and they equalised straight away.  It went evenly to half time, but in the second half we took over.  We were good in duels and created many chances, but we should have scored more", said Smågesjø.  "We discovered that we have a lot of U-16 players who are at U-17 level.  With the data we have, it will be very easy to select the squad next time".

The next meeting will be in a month's time in Bergen, when the U-17s will play two training matches against Denmark. 

ENGLAND - NORGE 1-3 (1-1), University of Warwick, Coventry.
Spectators: 50.
Ref: Sarah Garrat, England.
Cards: none.
Goals: 0-1 Kristin Haugstad (21), 1-1 Paige Williams (23), 1-2 Caroline Graham Hansen (49), 3-1 Ada Stolsmo Hegerberg (70).

Norway (4-4-2):
Siri Ervik -
Nora Byom-Nilssen, Martine Berget, Stine Reinås Pettersen, Henriette Isaksen -
Guro Reiten (Andrea Thun 72), Marit Sandtrøen (Lisa Naalsund 41), Ingrid Bakke (Therese Åsland 56), Caroline Graham Hansen -

Arna Bjørnar and Sandviken arranging U-17 matches
« Reply #9 on: March 09, 2011, 09:42:53 AM »
Arna Bjørnar and Sandviken are making the technical arrangements for Norway's two Under-17 matches in Bergen.  Norway will play Denmark on March 22 at 18.00 in the Vestlandshallen and on March 24 at 18.00 at Stemmemyren Stadium.

The matches will form part of the Hordaland football region's centenary celebrations.  Arna Bjørnar is also hoping that an international women's match can be arranged later in the year at Arna Idrettspark.  The present arrangements could make a difference to the NFF's decisions on this matter.

Under-17 trainer Tarjei Smågesjø has selected the squad to meet Denmark:

Kine Knashaug  -  Kongsvinger
Siri Ervik  -  Asker
Guro Øydvin  -  Sogndal IL  
Tonje Pedersen  -  Alta
Lisbeth Rothschild  -  Amazon Grimstad
Henriette Isaksen  -  Urædd
Martine Berget  -  Kongsvinger
Stine Reinås  -  Voss
Oda M Buraas  -  LSK Kvinner
Ingrid Bakke  -  Stabæk
Karoline Surdal  -  Klepp
Lisa Naalsund  -  Tertnes
Åsne Takle Eide  -  Arna-Bjørnar
Maria Olsvik  -  Kattem
Andrea Thun  -  Sarpsborg
Guro Reiten  -  Sunndal
Marit F. Sandtrøen  -  Trondheims-Ørn
Kristin Haugstad  -  Vålerenga

Local players are represented by Åsne Takle Eide and Lisa Naalsund from Tertnes, who are both with AB at the training camp in Turkey.  Others in the squad are Guro Øydvin from Sogndal and Stine Reinås from Voss.

We wish the girls good luck and look forward to the matches.

The focus will be on effectiveness in front of goal when the Under-17s play their two matches in Bergen against Denmark this week.

In the last matches the team has dominated chance statistics without taking the advantage of more goals.  "We have played eleven matches and won on chances in ten of them.  But five of them have been drawn.  There have been situations when we have got behind the opponents' defence, alone with the keeper, and on set-pieces, where we have been ineffective", said the trainer, Tarjei Smågesjø.

The matches will be in the Vestlandshallen on Tuesday, and at Sandviken's pitch, Stemmemyren Stadium, on Thursday, with an 18.00 kickoff both times.  "It's important that they learn to perform under pressure", said Smågesjø.  "Denmark is a team that tries to play football, concentrating on passing play and wiining high on the pitch.  So it will be important for us that attacks do not break down and that we do not lose the ball high on the pitch".

445 watched the U-17s

Tarjei Smågesjø was a happy man after his Under-17 team gave Denmark a 4-0 trouncing in Bergen this evening, under the eyes of a large crowd in the Vestlandshallen.  "This was excellent.  We created a lot of chances and we were effective in front of goal", he said to fotball.no.

Before a minute had been played Norway was ahead when Kristin Haugland was played through, beat the defence and lobbed the keeper elegantly.  The lead went up to 2-0 after 27 minutes with a goal by Martine Berget from a corner.  

That cleared the way for Guro Reiten.  3-0 came from a peach of a goal by her with a volley into a top corner of the net.  "A world-class goal.  Guro also played a very good match with precise distribution, good through-passing and two good goals.  Also our debutante keeper Guro Øydvin was very good.  She saved two big chances from Denmark and is an exciting player", said Smågesjø.
  
The last goal came from a header by Reiten into a corner of the net.  "Denmark had the ball more than us, but we used the spaces well and made good counterattacks.  The defensive play was smarter as well", said the trainer.

Before the match the trainer asked for better effectiveness in front of goal.  "You get what you ask for with these girls.  It was good for us that everything worked today.  We shall enjoy the win this evening, before we start again tomorrow to work for Thursday's match", he said.

With 445 in the crowd at the Vestlandhallen the atmosphere at the match was good.  "It was great for us to play in front of an enthusiastic public shouting the girls on.  It was a big experience for them.  This has been a great day for the Under-17s", said Tarjei Smågesjø.

Strong finish to a good session
« Reply #12 on: March 26, 2011, 09:38:00 AM »
The Under-17s beat Denmark again on Thursday, in the second half, with a 2-1 win after a goalless first half.

"The first half was even but Denmark was a little ahead on chances and they had a shot on the inside of a post.  We took over in the second half and created five big chances in the first 25 minutes.  We scored two goals but were not quite together at the end when they got a goal", said trainer Tarjei Smågesjø.

Marit Sandtrøen put Norway ahead with a penalty before Åsne Takle Eide doubled the lead.  Eide challenged one-to-one on the side, ran the ball forward and inward and placed it nicely into goal.  Denmark took their reducer but came no closer.

"It was a more even match then Tuesday's.  We could have been better aginst an established defence in the first half, and could have used counterattacks better at 2-0.  We were tested mentally but we showed character and won the match", said the trainer.  "We showed a grown-up approach and tried to play football.  We managed to win an even match, something we have struggled a little with before.  Of the players I think Marit Sandtrøen was the best, but also Lisa Naalsund played well".  

He is very pleased with the week's work.  "We have performed well but also discovered things that could be improved.  We could be better at playing well whatever the mood of the match is.  But this was a strong finish to a fine session", said Tarjei Smågesjø.

Norway - Denmark 2-1 (0-0), Stemmemyren stadium, Bergen
Spectators: 250

Yellow card: Stine Reinås, Norge
Goals: 1-0 Marit Sandtrøen (pen. 55), 2-0 Åsne Takle Eide (66), 2-1 Pernille Madsen (74).

The friendlies against Denmark continued on Thursday for our U-17 team at Stemmemyren in rather chilly weather with snow in the air.  But 250 spectators turned out to watch the girls play none the less.

It was a weaker match from Norway after Tuesday's match in the Vestlandshallen.  In the first half there were many passing errors and a battle in the midfield.  But there was some good play on the sides without any big scoring chances.

In the second half Norway's girls improved and scored twice - once from a penalty and once with a good performance from Åsne Takle Eide.  This time Åsne played from the start but was struggling a bit, playing on the 'wrong' side.  But to the pleasure of the visitors from Os and the Arna-Bjørnar supporters she succeeded with a decisive goal, which was the winning goal because Denmark later scored a reducer.  Not a bad thing for Åsne to take with her into the season.
