Norway Under-19 2015
« on: August 05, 2014, 06:49:22 PM »
It isn't long since Norway took a bronze medal at the U19 European Cup at home, with two Røa players in the squad, Synne Skinnes Hansen and Inger Katrine Bjerke.  These two will not be qualified for U19 next year so it's no surprise that they are not in the squad selected for the U19 meeting which will be held from August 17-21.

But the national team under Gøril Kringen has room for another Røa player.  Caroline Hovland has been picked for the trip to Sweden, which will include an international match on August 20.

Caroline Hovland has five international caps with the U-16 and U-17 teams.  We congratulate Caroline on her place in the team and look forward to seeing her statistics change after this meeting.  

Squad:
Cecilie Hauståker Fiskerstrand – Stabæk
Marit Clausen – Trondheims-Ørn
Synne Sofie Kinden Jensen – Kolbotn IL
Marie Dølvik Markussen – Stabæk
Aurora Watten Mikalsen – Arna-Bjørnar
Tuva Hansen – Arna-Bjørnar
Karina Sævik – Avaldsnes IL
Johanne Fridlund – Vålerenga
Camilla Ose – Kolbotn IL
Cesilie Andreassen – Medkila
Inga Sofie Bakken – Kolbotn IL
Mariken Kleppe – Urædd FK
Marit Bratberg Lund – Fart
Nora Eide Lie – Urædd FK
Maria Hiim – Klepp
Sara Eriksen – IL Sandviken
Sina Elise Tosterud – LSK Kvinner
Caroline Hovland – Røa

Sweden-Norway tonight
« Reply #1 on: August 20, 2014, 06:13:46 PM »
Tonight's match is important for two reasons.  "We have to assess new players at the same time as we prepare for the qualification for next year's U-19 Euros", said Gøril Kringen, who is in charge of the U19s until the new trainer Nils Lexerød takes over on December 1.

Nine of the players were at last month's European Cup and took bronze, while nine of them are new.  "This is our first meeting since the Euros and we are starting up with the next crop of players.  The 1995 girls have moved on and we are now working with the 1996-models", said Kringen.  "They will have a chance to show what they can do here.  I hope to see players with their minds on attack who aim to be here to stay".

Next week Kringen will pick the squad to go to Albania in September, where they expect to meet Scotland, Albania and Poland in the first stage of qualification.  "All our players have experience in the youth teams from before, so they understand the way we want to play.  The challenge is to put together a squad and find the right players for the different positions", said Kringen.

Wednesday's opponents are in the same boat and Kringen expects a tight match.  "They also have a split around 50-50 of old and new players after the summer, and I think we and the Swedes see this as a chance to find out where we stand.  Matches between us are often even and it will be the same on Wednesday", said Gøril Kringen.

Tough group.  Scotland was in the finals as well and I seem to remember one of the Polish youth sides was quite good, not sure if it's this one.

I was mentioning the really heavy Toppserien schedule starting this weekend (5 games in 13 days for the eight clubs left in the Cup).  Wonder how the U19's on those eight will balance the extra national duties.

Sweden 2 Norway 3
« Reply #3 on: August 20, 2014, 09:47:57 PM »
Norway turned the match round in stoppage time to snatch a 2-3 win in Sweden tonight.  Karina Sævik, now a veteran of the Euros last month, scored two goals and Synne Jensen, another veteran, scored the winner.

"It was a match in which each team owned one half.  We were best in the first half and had a well deserved lead at half time.  The goal came after a free kick where Karina Sævik sent the ball directly in via the far post.  We had many good runs that confused the keeper and the ball went straight into goal", said Gøril Kringen.

"Our aim for the second half was to perform better and we made some adjustments at half time to improve the attack, but we didn't manage to carry out the plan.  Sweden took over, created a lot of chances and scored two goals", she said.  But the winning instinct was strong in the Norwegian team.  "We have talked a lot about showing character and willpower and today the girls showed their strength when they worked through the opposition and scored two quick goals in overtime", said Kringen.  "The equaliser came from another free kick by Karina Sævik.  It wasn't such a good one as the first but the Swedish keeper was unlucky and the ball went through her hands".  

The winning goal came soon after.  "We won the ball in the midfield and played up to Synne Jensen who ran in behind the defence.  She evaded the central defender and placed the ball to the side of the keeper", said the trainer.

Kringen took many positive answers for the qualification phase that starts in September, especially about Sævik who scored two goals.  "Many players were brilliant at times today but the best over the whole match was Karina.  She took one of the two central midfield roles.  The ones who played there at the Euros are out of the team now so it's very encouraging to see her taking her chance today", she said.

There are changes to the U19 squad playing Euro-qualification matches that start on Saturday in Albania.  Camilla Ose and Sina Tosterud have had to pull out, and are replaced by:

Pernille Velta, Kongsvinger
Karoline Haugland, Arna-Bjørnar.

www.fotballmagasinet.no

Norway's seniors are in Albania as well as the U19s but they will not see each other's matches.  Saturday's U19 Norway-Poland match kicks off at 12.00 in Fier, an hour before the A-team starts the important World Cup qualifier in Dürres, 70 kilometres to the north.

Under-19s "well prepared"
« Reply #7 on: September 13, 2014, 09:58:06 AM »
Norway's U19s are aiming to go beyond the first round of qualification for next year's Euros, despite tough opposition.

The round starts this morning, with Poland as the first opponents.  Gøril Kringen is training the team until December.  "Both Poland and Scotland have beaten our girls in earlier tournaments with this group of players, so we know it's no simple task in front of us.  But we are well prepared and if we can play our own game we have a good chance", she said.  "Poland is a physically tough team with a direct style that like to play through to the back room.  For us it's about staying wide awake, keeping them out of that area and maintining the tempo of our attack".

She thinks the matches will allow the players to show their skills.  "There are many creative players in our group and we must take this opportunity", said the trainer.

Norway 3 Poland 0
« Reply #8 on: September 13, 2014, 07:08:42 PM »
Norway played their first match in qualification for the next U19 Euros today.  The match, against Poland, was a good experience for the Norwegian girls.  "We lay low at the start to bring Poland forward and then we counterattacked", said Gøril Kringen to fotball.no.

Marie Markussen put the team in the lead after nine minutes and made her mark before she had to go off with an injury halfway through the first half.  "Marie had a blow on the head so we took no chances.  But she seems to be OK and could play in the match on Monday against Albania", said Kringen.  Nothing much happened otherwise in the first half but Norway kept control until half time.

After the break Poland pressed for an equaliser, but Norway were the most effective and after 50 minutes Karina Sævik scored a second goal.  Fifteen minutes later the referee awarded a penalty and Poland had a golden opportunity to get back in the match.  But Anna Zapala could not beat Aurora Mikalsen in Norway's goal.  "The penalty was one of the cheaper ones, but nonetheless it was a very important save by Aurora who played a good match today.  A Polish goal at that moment would have brought them back into the contest at an awkward time for us", said the trainer.

Poland did not not manage to score, and at the end Synne Jensen made it 3-0 in stoppage time.  A solid 3-0 win over Poland gives Norway a dream start to qualification.  "This is a win everyone worked hard for, and it's difficult to mention individuals after this sort of match.  We are very solid collectively and they all deserve equal praise.  We'll give this one to the team", said Kringen.  "Now it's all about recovery and being ready for the match on Monday against Albania, which is a team we must not underestimate".  Norway-Albania is on Monday at 15.00.

Norway ran the steamroller over Albania for the second time in two days; this time the Under-19s had a turn.  Marie Markussen was back on the field after her head injury in Saturday's match.  Klepp's Maria Hiim scored four.  

The Norwegians have full points from their first two matches in Albania, but Thursday's opponents, Scotland, are in the same place.  Norway have a better goal difference so a draw would take them to the top of the group, but trainer Gøril Kringen says there is no interest in a draw.  "We are an attacking team and we will go for a win against Scotland.  We have shown we have a realistic chance of winning this match as well".

Klepp and Norway have a new hero today after four goals for the Under-19s in Albania by Maria Hiim.

After Saturday we might have dreamed of eleven goals in today's Albania-Norway match, but few would have believed 16-year-old Hiim would score four of them.  She goes to Sola Videregående school near Stavanger, and started playing for Klepp in the Toppserien in the autumn.

She will be 17 in October and is one of the U19s' youngest players.

Letter from Albania
« Reply #10 on: September 16, 2014, 01:14:55 PM »
Sara Eriksen of division-1's top team Sandviken is with the Under-19s in Albania:

I find myself just now in Albania with the rest of the Norwegian Under-19 team, where we are playing qualification matches for the U19 European Cup.  We met last Wednesday in Oslo before setting off for Albania on Thursday morning.  After a long day with plane changes here and there it was a weary crew that arrived in Vlore late in the evening.

Our hotel is right on the coast so I and my roomie Karoline Haugland of Arna-Bjørnar have a view of the sea.  Albania is an up-and-coming country that is trying to improve conditions and make the place better for tourists, to a vistor it's a land of contrasts: between rich and poor, clean and dirty streets, good and bad football pitches and a lot more. 

We had a training session on Friday before the first match on Saturday against Poland, a strong team.  We had prepared ourselves well on what to expect but we were not really ready for the cooking temperature of 35 degrees and roasting sun.  In spite of that and an aggressive Polish team that seemed more like a military detachment than a football team, it was a good match with a 3-0 win and a sweating record for evey player.  A delight, to put it mildly.  I got 70 minutes on the field which exceeded all expectations and sneaks into my list of top football memories. 

The next match was a good runout against Albania.  Here again we had prepared ourselves and went into the match knowing that if we did the job here we would walk away with a comfortable win.  After a groin strain in the first match I was on the sidelines, which was a bit boring because I would have been in the starting eleven.  But we have a brilliant support team round us that does everything to help so maybe I'll be ok for the next match.  The team tried to stay professional and when the final whistle went we had an 11-0 lead.  A fantastic performance and with two wins out of three it's all set for the group final against Scotland on Thursday.  A draw or a win takes us through to the next round.

Other than that I am having a super time with a great gang.  I could easily stay later than Friday but obviously it will be good to get back to Bergen and Sandviken.  Hope all is well at home and see you soon!

Euro 2015 qualification situation.
« Reply #11 on: September 16, 2014, 05:49:57 PM »
Norway's U19s are already through to the next stage of qualification after their two wins in Albania.  They will meet Scotland on Thursday but some of the excitement has gone out of the encounter because both teams are through.  But Norway could gain a better seeding place by beating Scotland.

On Monday evening UEFA announced the teams that have already qualified for the next round.  All eleven group winners and the ten best second places go to the second round.  Norway's worst theoretical outcome at present is as the tenth of the second-placed teams, so they cannot be eliminated at this stage.

The reigning champions, the Netherlands, and Spain, who beat Norway in last summer's semifinal of the 2014 Euros, are through.  Our Scandinavian neighbours Sweden and Denmark are also through.  In additions Iceland, Ukraine, Italy, Serbia, Czech Republic, Portugal, Russia, Finland, Northern Ireland, Switzerland and Austria are all into the next round.  The top three seeds, England, Germany and France, are already qualified to go to round-2.

In the next round the remaining 24 teams in the competition will go into a draw on November 19, and the matches are scheduled for April 4-9, 2015.  The teams will be in six groups of four and the six group winners plus the best second team will go to the finals tournament in Israel in July next year.

Scotland - Norway 0-0
« Reply #12 on: September 18, 2014, 07:21:29 PM »
Norway's U19s played their last qualification match of the first round today in Albania, and it ended in a goalless draw against Scotland.  "0-0 is all right and the scoreline gives a good picture of the match", said Gøril Kringen to fotball.no.

The Scots could have won the group by beating Norway, but did not seem willing to make sacrifices for points.  "They looked happy with a draw.  They lay low and gave us little space to attack, so we feel we were banging our heads on the wall and did not achieve what we wanted", said the trainer.

The Norwegians won by 3-0 and 11-0 in the first two matches.  "It was a slightly lifeless match and we did ok, but are not entirely happy with it.  On the other hand we did not concede in all three matches, which is good, and we are pleased to finish as the group winners", said Kringen.

Kringen has been a stop-gap trainer until Nils Lexerød takes over on December 1.  He is taking over a group with a lot of potential.  "Looked at overall I have seen many good performances from talented girls.  They are an exciting group with plenty of potential.  We have many creative players, with good qualities", said Kringen.

She thinks the players can go as far as they choose to.  "I am certain some of these players can make the step up into the seniors if they work hard enough.  It's up to them", said Gøril Kringen.

Bare minne om at NFF ikke opererer med klubbskiftene i denne oversikten.

3 spillere her som har skriftet klubb:

Tuva Hansen, Klepp
Pernille Velta, Stabæk
Vilde Fjeldal, Medkila

Se mer om troppen og uttaket på Kvinnefotballmagasinet, hvor Klepp har flest spillere med(4), deretter Stabæk, Medkila og Kolbotn med 3 spillere.

Arna Bjørnar og Amazon er de eneste toppserieklubbene som ikke er rerpresentert, med andre ord en god fordeling. Stor forandring fra Bergens klubben Arna Bjørnar som hadde 4 og 5 spillere med de forrige årene, nå har de ingen. Men man vet også at 1995 generasjonen som nå har gått ut på J19 landslaget, besto av mange av nettopp AB sin fantastiske 95 årgang, med bla Vilde Bøe Risa, Amalie Eikeland, Lisa Naalsund, Ine Weeda, Cecilie Kvamme, og Sigrid Heien Hansen som kom fra Fortuna i fjor, alle sentrale på J19 i fjor!

OK JR, takk for det, artig at du er med.  JR says that some players in that list are now with different clubs and Arna Bjørnar's domination of the U19s is over for now because the fantastic 1995 group of Vilde Bøe Risa, Amalie Eikeland, Lisa Naalsund, Ine Wedaa, Cecilie Kvamme and Sigrid Heien Hansen have moved on.  It also seems that Aurora Mikalsen has also moved.  Instead Klepp has four players in the squad including Tuva Hansen who was an AB player last year.  

Two of Klepp's players, Tuva Hansen and Maia Hiim (Kvinnefotballmagasinet.no):

Ready for England
« Reply #19 on: January 22, 2015, 10:18:21 PM »
Aurora Mikalsen is more than ready to beat England at the weekend.  

"We have just had two training sessions earlier in the week, so not all the parts of the play are in pace.  But what we focus on we make progress with.  We want to be an attacking footballing team, so it's looking good.  We can keep the tempo up all through a match", said Mikalsen to Fotballmagasinet.  "It will be exciting to see how things go".

Now the match against England is on Saturday, the U19s' first training match of the year.  Mikalsen loves to beat England.  "England is the type of team it's always a delight to beat, because they never give up.  But we must focus on our play and concentrate on our team so that we can get better", she said.

In April there are qualification matches against England, Switzerland and Northern Ireland.  After that there is the chance of the European Cup finals in Israel in June.  It's a long way off, but what I know of our girls says that when we go home we will work really hard to improve.  So I say that if we make it to Israel we must go for a medal", she said.  "But we still need a lot of work to qualify and nothing is given".

The U19s have a lot of new faces after winning bronze in last year's European Cup championship.  "I think it's really great to meet new people.  They are good as well, and it's fun to see what the level is like.  We welcome them with open arms and they say themselves that they are thriving.  There never any difficulty in joining this gang", she said.

"It's a great gang with a good atmosphere.  It's fun to go on a trip", said Aurora Mikalsen.
