Jarl Torske, trainer of Norway's Under-23s, has selected this squad for the Four Nations Tournament in La Manga from February 23 to March 2:

Nora Gjøen - LSK Kvinner
Guro Pettersen - Fløya
Line Hauge - Stabæk
Ina Gausdal - Linderud-Grei
Caroline Walde - Arna-Bjørnar
Eirin B. Kleppa - Klepp
Astrid Grøttå Ree - Arna-Bjørnar
Gunhild Herregården - Røa
Cecilie B. Liane - Kolbotn
Marita Skammelsrud Lund - LSK Kvinner
Tina Wulf - Trondheims-Ørn
Ingrid Moe Wold - LSK Kvinner
Eline Johansen - Fløya
Marita Eide - Trondheims-Ørn
Tina Algrøy - Arna-Bjørnar
Hege Hansen - Arna-Bjørnar
Ida Elise Enget - Stabæk
Ingvild L. Isaksen - Kolbotn
Marie Bakke - Klepp
Oda Fugelsnes - Trondheims-Ørn

27.02 16:00 Sweden – Norway
01.03 13:00 USA – Norway

With Ingrid Thorbjørnsen retired, the keeper places go to Guro Pettersen (19) and Nora Gjøen who will be 19 in the next fortnight and is also qualified for the U-19s this year.  They both have Toppserien experience.  Most of the squad has been together through Torske's national youth teams for many years, and some of them have had match-time with the A-team.

Oda Fugelsnes is back from a long break from international football after she damaged a cruciate ligament before the 2009 season, an injury that prevented her playing her second year in the Under-19s.

Keeper Guro Pettersen has pulled out of the Under-23 trip to La Manga, and she has been replaced by Ane Fimreite of Avaldsnes.

The team plays its first match today at 16.00 against England.  It is a strong English team comprising most of the players who won the Under-19 European Cup in 2009.

Good performance in draw with England
« Reply #2 on: February 26, 2011, 01:50:15 PM »
Norway's Under-23s played a draw with England on Friday but lost the penalty shootout.  

LSK-Kvinner players had a good match.  Nora Neset Gjøen played the whole match for Norway and assisted Hege Hansen's goal when her clearance shot played Hege through for a lob over the England keeper.  Marita Skammelsrud Lund had a solid match in central defence.  Ingrid Moe Wold was substituted after 63 minutes but played well up until then.

Norway met a strong England team that won the U-19 European Cup two years ago.  It was a good performance by the Norwegian girls and a well deserved result.

There's another match on Sunday, this time against Sweden who lost 2-4 to the USA.

NORGE - ENGLAND 1-1 (1-0) 3-5 str.

Sted: La Manga.
Tilskuere: ca 100.
Dommer: Pernilla Larsson, Sverige.
Gult kort: Ida Elise Enget, Norge; Jade Moore, Gemma Bonner, England.
Mål: 1-0 Hege Hansen (6), 1-1 Toni Duggan (47).

Norge (4-3-3):
Nora Gjøen -
Astrid Grøttå Ree, Caroline Walde (Ina Gausdal 35), Marita Skammelsrud Lund, Cecilie B. Liane -
Tina Wulf, Ingvild Isaksen, Ingrid Moe Wold (Marita Eide 63) -
Oda Fugelsnes (Marie Bakke 82), Hege Hansen, Tina Algrøy (Ida Elise Enget 53).

Wholehearted play by the U-23s
« Reply #3 on: February 27, 2011, 12:11:50 PM »
The U-23s battled to a 1-1 draw against a strong English team on Friday at La Manga.  "England was perhaps nearer a win, but 1-1 gives a good picture of the match", said Jarl Torske to fotball.no.

"England's players are in their league season and are a very secure team on the ball.  They showed they are ahead of us there, but our performance showed we are stronger than when we lost to them a year ago", said the trainer.  Good performances have meant that several of the players are in contention for the World Cup squad later in the year.  "Hege Hansen and Ingvild Isaksen stood out.  They used their physique and set the standard.  Also Hansen was a constant trouble at the front", said Torske.

He wanted to start the match at a high tempo so was pleased when the first goal came after six minutes.  "It was after a clearance by Nora Gjøen up behind the England defence.  Hansen burst through the central defenders and lobbed the keeper.  She had another chance two minutes later.  We had three big chances with the high pressure but we had to stop after 20 minutes.  It's extremely demanding to play like that against such a secure team as England", said Torske.

England claimed an equaliser after half time.  "We were too passive in our own box.  We lost the ball and they came through.  We came into the match again at the end and had some dangerous moments, but were imprecise", said Torske.

On Sunday Norway will meet Sweden, who lost 2-4 to the USA.  The USA will be Norway's opponents next Tuesday.

"I think England is a better team than Sweden, but the Swedes are also good.  So there will be some changes in the team", said Jarl Torske.

The Under-23s struggled against Sweden and lost 3-1 in Sunday's friendly.  It was not a good follow-up to the draw with England.

"Definitely a poor performance.  We started well with high pressure and created some chances.  Then Sweden scored on their first chance, and after that things went only one way.  Sweden got better and better while we got worse and worse", said Jarl Torske.  "I am disappointed with the performance".

The Under-23 team is a young one.  "There are many new players, and we have seven debutantes in the squad and made a lot of changes in the team for this match.  There was little time for them to settle, and the step-up from U-19 to U-23 is a large one.  But we are here to learn", said the trainer.  Now they will analyse and discuss the match.  "We must be honest with each other, look at the pictures and recognise what was not good enough.  I know these girls well and know they are irritated with this performance.  Fortunately we have another match in a couple of days when we can put things right".

On Tuesday they will meet the USA for their last match at La Manga, the team that is perhaps the best U-23 team in the world.  "This is the ultimate challenge.  They played a 1-1 draw with England in what was an even match.  I believe we can raise ourselves and win", he said.  But the defence will have to be put right.  "We need security in the defence.  Today we allowed too many chances", said Jarl Torske.

Top class for 70 minutes
« Reply #5 on: March 01, 2011, 07:46:12 PM »
The Under-23s gave a top-class performance in today's friendly against USA.  After 70 minutes they were 2-0 in front, but they could not last the distance and lost 2-3.  Goals were scored by Marita Skammelsrud Lund and Tina Algrøy.  17-year-old keeper Ane Fimreite stepped in at short notice.

A goal from nowhere gave the Americans the boost they needed, and they turned the match round in the final minutes.  In spite of the loss it was an uplifting experience for the Norwegian players, and Jarl Torske preferred to focus on the positives.  "There are slightly mixed feelings when we lead 2-0 and are in control, bit still lose 3-2.  But I am happy we were so good for large parts of the match.  We showed top class", he said to fotball.no.

It was an improvement after the 3-1 loss to Sweden on Sunday.  "This was quite a different match.  The girls were out to prove a point, were concentrated from the start and showed a lot of engagement.  We were disciplined in defence, good at keeping the ball in attacks, and good at counterattacking", said the trainer.  He has no complaints about USA winning the match.  "They had most of the ball.  This was a good American team that is one of the world's best".  

One player who made an impression on him was Ane Fimreite.  The 17-year-old keeper from Avaldsnes played her second match for the Under-23s.  "Ane should have stood over today, but 15 minutes before the start Nora Gjøen was injured in warming-up.  It was good to see Ane accept the challenge.  She is a player with a tremendous will to train, very quick to learn but also with an attacking attitude.  Also she is technically good and secure with the ball", said Torske.  He thinks Fimreite could eventually be a top keeper.  "What she showed today looks extremely promising", said the trainer.  

Ane Fimreite now has a second week at La Manga, as she joins Norway's Under-19 team that has its first match on Friday.

Although Norway did not have a win at La Manga, Torske was happy with the week.  "It's important that the players get to know this level.  We had eight debutantes with us at U-23 level.  All the matches were tight and even and we have delivered some good football.  

The Under-23 team is a good showcase for players with ambitions to play senior international football.  "Hege Hansen has been good for the whole time.  Also today Marita Skammelsrud Lund and Tina Wulf were very good.  Marita had full control in defence with Caroline Walde.  Tina was good at holding the ball, slowing things down and setting up her colleagues.  Hege was a constant trouble at the front", said Jarl Torske.  

USA - NORGE 3-2 (0-1), La Manga, 01-03-2011.
Spectators: ca 50.
Ref: Rhona Daly, Ireland.
Yellow card: Kylie Wright - USA.
Goals: 0-1 Marita Skammelsrud Lund (17), 0-2 Tina Algrøy (47), 1-2 Melissa Henderson (70), 2-2 Sarah Hagen (78), 3-2 Kasey Nogueira (82).

Norway (4-3-3):
Ane Fimreite -

Under-23s training team
« Reply #7 on: June 10, 2011, 09:28:30 AM »
With the Under-19s' success in Italy, Jarl Torske is with them until they play the European Cup Final on Saturday.  It means he will not be with the Under-23s in Sweden for their meeting that starts on June 13.

Reinforcements have been called in and Gøril Kringen will be the chief trainer, with Arna-Bjørnar's Morten Kalvenes as the assistant.  Two trainers with long experience of the Toppserien take charge of this meeting, and it's good that Arna-Bjørnar has yet another representative in the national teams.

Letter from Sweden
« Reply #10 on: June 15, 2011, 08:24:15 PM »
In the hope of the interest that they all probably have, for the people of the world who follow the LSK players in Sweden, we send a very early travel letter.  

Ingrid Moe Wold turned up late at the Scandic Hotel in Falun in company with Arna-Bjørnar's Caroline Walde and Astrid Grøtta Ree.  They were all delayed because of exams.  Miss Wold is now 'free from her academic pursuits' of the spring.  As earlier stated, qualifications are important for us who play football as a hobby.  Now some enthusiastic summer jobs await.

The rest of us met at Gardermoen on Monday morning, where for some air-traffic reason we had to wait 1½ hours to get the show rolling.  After seven hours, three stops and a complete book read on the techniques of ruling, we arrived at Sweden's best-kept town.  

Best-kept means it's hopeless looking for signposts.  It's impossible to find your way around when you are first here.  When ex-LSK Canary Ida Elise Enget had her birthday today, I decided to take a trip to the nearest shop to buy some Cola, chocolate and some doughnuts.  With a loan of a bicycle and some quick verbal directions from the staff I went out on what should have been a three-minute ride, but after about an hour and a lot of dead-ends I was almost in tears when I saw Ica in front of me.  It's a good job we had only one training session today.

Football training is enjoyable even though it did not start ideally, with heavy trousers weighed down with 12 kilo weights.  We in room 917 are not the only ones from the club who are contributing to this trip, because Bente Nordby is here as the keeper trainer.  She is managing as usual, but there is some doubt about her striker skills.  Blame the slippery pitch but she played for my team and I expected more when she was one-to-one with the opposing keeper.

Back in the room at about eleven, and we shall both start tomorrow's match against Sweden.  So I can finish this letter with the hope of sun, a win, and send a big hug to the girls at home.  PS Moe is the captain tomorrow!

Top opponents for Norway
« Reply #11 on: June 15, 2011, 08:34:09 PM »
Norway's U-23s will gain good international reference-points when they meet Sweden and USA this week.  They met the same teams at La Manga in the winter, and lost the matches 3-1 and 3-2.

For many players the step from Under-19 to the A-team is a big one, and the Under-23s make a good arena for development.  "Of those seniors who are about to go to the World Cup, ten or eleven of them were in the Under-23s.  If you perform well in this team you are well prepared to step up", said trainer Gøril Kringen.

"We have a young squad but there are many with plenty of international experience in the Under-19s, and some with Under-23 experience.  It's a good mix", said Kringen.

Strong performance by Norway in Sweden
« Reply #13 on: June 15, 2011, 09:49:15 PM »
Norway's Under-23 team is in Sweden to meet good opponents and gain international reference-points for their play.  In today's friendly against Sweden the team produced a strong win for Norway.  Four goals in the last ten minutes turned 2-1 into 5-2.

"I am very pleased.  To beat Sweden 5-2 is a great performance.  We said beforehand that we must create a lot of chances and score goals, but five goals is a little more than I reckoned on", said Gøril Kringen.

Two players, Line Holter and Julie Adserø, had their first minutes of Under-23 international play today.  Adserø scored two goals.  "Both debutantes came in and set their mark on the match.  Adserø scored the 3-1 and 4-1 goals with her second and third touch of the ball.  It's good to have players like them that you can send in", said Kringen.

She thinks the win is the result of good teamwork.  "All the players, including the subs, did a whole-hearted job.  We helped each other, all the time.  Today it's good to be a Norwegian in Sweden", said the trainer.

In the winter they lost 3-1 to Sweden at La Manga.  "Today the collective defence was the biggest difference.  We did not hang together all the time at La Manga, but we did it much better today.  It gave us a lot of counterattacking chances which we took advantage of.  Also we were effective", said Kringen.  "Our structure was not always perfect but we were able to tidy up each other's mistakes".

On Friday there is another tough challenge for Norway when they meet the USA.

It was a night for the Trønders when Norway met Sweden in Falun.  Under-23 team trainer Gøril Kringen of Trondheim was able to watch four goals put in by her neighbours from the cathedral city.

In front of 500 spectators Ingvild Isaksen put Norway into the lead after 12 minutes, but Olivia Schough claimed an equaliser for Sweden after 20 minutes.

Straight after that Trondheims-Ørn's Oda Fugelsnes scored, before Julie Adserø of Kattem scored twice.  Fugelsnes's teammate Tina Wulf scored Norway's final goal three minutes from the end.

Sweden scored another reducer at the end but a three-goal win was a strong performance by Norway.

Under-23s show the way with win over USA
« Reply #16 on: June 17, 2011, 08:29:43 PM »
The U-23s won 3-2 over the USA in Sweden on Friday.  "This was possibly more impressive than then win on Wednesday.  It's always tough against the USA and there's no doubt the team has improved in the last two days.  This team has an enormous work ethic, and today they reached down and produced something extra", said national team trainer Gøril Kringen.

The wins over Sweden and USA demand respect.  "We have met two strong teams with players who have been close to being picked for the World Cup.  We have shown that we can match the best, individually and collectively.  We have had good answers, and the players have had good experiences that they can take with them", said Kringen.

Norway delivered a very good first half and deserved their 2-0 half-time lead.  After the break the Americans came back strongly and equalised to 2-2 with 15 minutes left to play.  But this was Norway's match, and a minute before the end Cecilie Liane's free kick went down the corridor into goal.  "It was really good to see the kick go into goal", said the trainer.

One player who has stood out at this meeting is Kattem's Julie Adserø.  She made her debut in the Sweden match with two goals as a substitute, and scored again on Friday.  "She showed she is a goal-getter.  When she approaches the goal she always has a plan.  Today she set to with a left-foot shot from long range.  She is looking for goals in all situations and is a good finisher with either foot and the head", said Kringen.

In the Toppserien the 20-year-old has scored freely for Kattem.  The trainer is pleased to see her delivering for the national team as well.  "Now she has shown she can score against top international teams.  It's good to watch as a player takes that step", said Gøril Kringen.

Norway's Under-23s have been at the three-nations tournament in Falun, Sweden this week, where they have delivered two strong performances.

On Wednesday they met Sweden in a high-scoring match which they eventually won 5-2.  Our own Julie Skjeflo Adserø debuted in the U23s in this match when she came on after 77 minutes and increased the lead to 3-1 in the 80th minute and 4-1 in the 82nd.  Quite a debut!  it was also good to see Oda Fugelsnes and Tina Wulf from Trondheims-Ørn on the scoring list.

On Friday they met the USA, a team that is perhaps even stronger than the 'sweet sisters'.  Again Norway stepped up and impressed with a 3-2 win.  Our Julie was in the starting eleven, and after 40 minutes she showed her scoring skills once again to bring the score to 2-0.

Congratulations to Norway and to the debutante and scorer of 3 goals!

Hello again! here is the last letter from Sweden.

We in room 917 have just finished with delivering kit, dinner and the match meeting, after beating the USA.  The match was a battle, and for large parts of the match there was a good collective defence effort from us.  Even though USA had most of the possession we showed we have the work ethic in place and are effective in front of goal.  We both played 90 minutes today as well, and are reasonably happy with our own performances.  

Nora had several matchwinning saves today, and received Player of the Match at the meeting afterwards.  As everyone knows, Nora is never satisfied with herself, and was certain she would not get the Player of the Match, so now she has to run ten exercises at our next training session because she lost a bet with Arna Bjørnar's Caroline Walde.

But it isn't only 'little Nora' who has to run exercises.  Also I (Moe) have to.  We were late at the pre-match meeting, because we were doing a little project in the room (see the video!) - there is a lot of time to pass on these trips . .

Otherwise the trip has had some other dramatic experiences.  It's 'interesting' to have Nora as a roomie.  Her bad sense of humour and technical competence impressed me on one of the many trips we had in the lift, when it suddenly stopped.  With my fear of lifts I was suddenly terrified.  But in the middle of my panic I realised it was one of Nora's tricks, and I stopped looking for the alarm button.  Ten seconds later the danger was over and when the door opened we were almost up in the sky.  Nora . . . you are going doooown!

We have been very happy with the arrangements in Sweden but one thing needs fixing.  The national anthem today was the same as against Sweden - about half the right speed.  It's a bit difficult for two enthusiastic song birds standing beside each other, but we managed the last line anyway.

Tomorrow we have breakfast at 06.30 before we point our noses towards home and Lillestrøm.  An eight-hour coach trip awaits us, but hopefully we will take another route this time so that Nora doesn't have to vomit in a Swedish wood.  

Summing up, we have a had a great meeting with good results and experience we can take forward with us.  Now we are looking forward to a summer holiday at home, and updating ourselves with the stars in Germany.  We will see you on TV!!  hugs from Ingrid and Nora.

Ingrid Moe Wold, Nora Gjøen

Norway's Under-23 team for the friendly against Denmark in September has been picked by Jarl Torske:

Nora Gjøen  -  LSK Kvinner
Guro Pettersen  -   Fløya
Astrid Grøttå Ree  -  Arna-Bjørnar
Gunhild Herregården  -  Røa
Caroline Walde  -  Arna-Bjørnar
Ingrid Ryland  -  Arna-Bjørnar
Eline Johansen  -  Fløya
Ingrid Moe Wold  -  LSK Kvinner
Tina Wulf  - Trondheims-Ørn
Line Holter  -  Røa
Ingvild Isaksen  -  Kolbotn
Hege Hansen  -  Arna-Bjørnar
Tina Algrøy  -  Arna-Bjørnar
Kristine Hegland  -  Arna-Bjørnar
Julie Adserø  -  Kattem
Melissa Bjånesøy  -  Sandviken IL
Oda Fugelsnes  -  Trondheims-Ørn
Ida Elise Enget  -  Stabæk

Match: Sep. 15 Denmark - Norway, Brøndby Stadium, Copenhagen 12.00

Arna-Bjørnar are proud to contribute six players - one third of the squad.

www.arna-bjornar.no

Arna-Bjørnar 6, LSK Kvinner 2, Trondheims-Ørn 2, Røa 2, Fløya 2, Kolbotn 1, Kattem 1, Sandviken 1, Stabæk 1.

From the team that played in the win over USA on June 18 Marie Bakke and Cecilie Liane are out.  Melissa Bjånesøy broke into the U-19s this year and was the top scorer at the U-19 European Cup.  Line Holter came in fairly recently after good midfield performances for Røa.  All the rest are more or less regulars in Jarl Torske's youth football programme.  Morten Kalvenes's development programme at Arna-Bjørnar is showing results in this squad and in the club's place in the table.

Most experienced player is probably Caroline Walde with 12 U-17 matches, 38 U-19 and four U-20 up to the end of 2008, then in the U-23s six in 2010 and five so far in 2011 - 65 international matches altogether.    

[is there anywhere that players statistics are kept?  NFF seems to have deleted theirs along with altomfotball]

Guro Pettersen is in the U-23s despite being U-19 qualified for the rest of this year.  I just watched her match in the Dana Cup Final in July when Fløya beat Urædd.  She is wearing a skull protector after a few episodes of concussion going back to 01-05-2009 when she had a really nasty collision with a goal-post.  That seems not a bad idea for keepers (e.g. Petr Čech) - preferably before they get concussion :)
