Under-16 training match today

15-year-old Elise Isolde Stenevik is from the west-coast town of Florø.  She has played football with boys all her life, and is now with the national Under-16 girls at their training meeting.

Norway has many talents in its stretched-out country, and Stenevik is one.  She is like some of the best who have played in the Toppserien, but all her experience is with boys' teams, which is good experience to take her forward.  She even went to the Dana Cup with the boys as an 11-year-old, and took bronze.  She has played at a Statoil meeting run by Brede Hangeland, and is now in Lena Tyriberget's U16s.

Her development, like all talents of her age, is based on keeping her feet on the ground and working towards defined goals.  It needs more than just being good at this moment.

Elise Stenevik is a cousin of Arna Bjørnar's tall 20-year-old central defender Ingrid Stenevik.  Elise is in class 10 this year and ready to start videregående school next year, and hopes to do some training with Arna Bjørnar after next week's international matches.

U16s in Portugal
« Reply #3 on: May 04, 2015, 12:47:59 PM »
Norway's U16s are in Portugal for the UEFA Development Tournament coming up this week.  This squad was unbeaten as the U15s last year and will now play their first U16 matches.

"The job now is to establish our own style and create an understanding of what distinguishes us as a team.  I hope we have a team that can learn a lot this week through the matches and training sessions we will have down here, and that the girls will absorb what they have learned", said trainer Lena Tyriberget to fotball.no.

"The squad is an exciting one and they performed very well last year.  This week they will meet good international opponents and we will gain a good idea of where we stand.  Many nations are working well now and developing fast, so we can't expect to win all the matches even though we did well last year", she said.

This week they will meet the hosts Portugal as well as Italy and Belgium.  "We have not met these teams before but we know a lot about their aims and about how their other age groups play, so we have an idea of what to expect", said the trainer.

The first match is against Portugal at Estadio Municipal 25 Abril, on Monday at 18.00.  "We will meet a good team of technically skilled players with a tough and aggressive playing style.  We must try to break them down with our high tempo in both defence and attack.  It's going to be an exciting match and we look forward to getting started in the tournament", said Tyriberget.

These U16s will go on to play qualification matches for the U17 European Cup in October, when they will meet Netherlands, Moldova and Bulgaria.  "That is obviously the big target for the year and the aim will be work towards top form by then", she said.  The two best will go to the elite round and the tournament will be played in Belarus in summer 2016.

Matches:
May 4, Portugal-Norway, Estadio Municpal 25 Abril , Castro Verde, 18.00,
May 5, Norway-Italy, Sports Complex F Mamade, Beja, 15.00,
May 7, Belgium-Norway, Estadio Municipal 25 Abril , Castro Verde, 12.00.

Portugal 0 Norway 1
« Reply #4 on: May 04, 2015, 11:16:43 PM »
Norway started the UEFA Development Tournament with a 1-0 win over the hosts on Monday evening.  

"We are very pleased that we took a win and three points from the opening match.  It's a fine start to the week even though this performance was not a top one", said trainer Lena Tyriberget to fotball.no.  "We can see we have a lot of work to do especially in the attack.  The defensive structure held up more or less through the whole match today.  We allowed Portugal a couple of chances in the final minutes but otherwise they created little.  In the attack we were not relaxed with the ball and had trouble seeing the big picture and making the right decisions.  That's what we need to work on".

But the team did manage to create problems for Portugal.  "We made some good counterattacks and combined well to put them under pressure, but it didn't happen enough times", said the trainer.  One of the counterattacks led to Norway's goal: "Olaug Tvedten went with the ball up the right side before placing it down into the corner of the net from 20 yards", she said.

"It was an even performance rather than a good one today but I thought Sofie Haug stood out, especially in the second half.  Also our central defenders were solid all through the match".

The next match is against Italy on Tuesday afternoon.  "We have analysed the Belgium-Italy match played earlier today and feel we must raise our game to match Italy tomorrow.  They are quicker and better than Portugal.  It's a short time until the match but we will use the time well and be well prepared", said Lena Tyriberget.

Portugal-Norway 0-1 (0-1), 2x40 min., Estadio Municipal, Castro Verde, 04-05-2015

In the first half Norway could have led by more but they kept good control most of the time.  In the second half the hosts were better and at the end it could well have been 1-1 when keeper Frida Thomas had to go to full stretch to make a save down by the post. https://www.facebook.com/kvinnefotballmagasinet?fref=ts

U16s - second win
« Reply #5 on: May 05, 2015, 05:30:37 PM »
Norway had a good start to the tournament in Portugal on Monday and had to turn out the very next day to play Italy.

Norway's girls went a goal down to the Italians before coming back to win 2-1 this afternoon.  "We are very pleased.  The result is a good one and at the same time we raised our performance today, which is almost as good to see", said Lena Tyriberget to fotball.no.

The trainer summed up Norway's performance by saying they had good control in the back four and were able to produce more attacking play today.  "In the first half Italy did not create much but we had some good counterattacks and managed some formal attacks that we created chances with.  That is a definite improvement from yesterday's match", she said.  "In the second half we created a lot of chances and could have scored one or two more goals.  The attacking play was even better".

Overall the team had more to take forward from today's match than against Portugal yesterday, even though they won both times.  "We performed better as a team in this match, in both defence and attack.  We released more of our potential as individuals and as a team", said Tyriberget.

After a goalless first half there was much more excitement after half time.  Just after the break Italy took the lead with a penalty after a shot hit a Norwegian hand, but the Italians did not enjoy their lead for long.  Only minutes later Norway mounted a counterattack up the left side which ended with Celine Nergård finding the way to the net.  

In the 56th minute the same player went forward again and this time she was brought down for a penalty.  Ine Sofie Østmo put the ball securely into goal and with that Norway had turned the match round, taking a lead that lasted the distance to 90 minutes.  Norway's U16s had their second win in two days and a brilliant start to the tournament.

The third and last match is against Belgium in two days.  Tyriberget is confident that the team will be a good condition to deliver a good match.  "The focus will be on recovery, which is very important.  We have shared the match time across the squad so far, and we think we have a good chance of being fresh in brain and body for Thursday", said the trainer.  

"And we will work hard to find out about Belgium and how we can get a hold on the match, both for our own play and to find out what they are good at", said Lena Tyriberget.

Tournament win for Norway
« Reply #6 on: May 07, 2015, 09:46:52 PM »
Norway met Belgium in the third and last match in the mini-tournament for Under-16s in Portugal on Thursday.  After two wins earlier, Norway were evenly matched against Belgium and it had to go to penalties after a 1-1 draw, and Belgium won that.

The penalties did not count in the final result so Norway won the tournament with seven points.  "The penalty shootout made no difference to us because we had already won the tournament, but it was good experience on penalties", said Lena Tyriberget.

The first half ended goalless and it looked for a long time as if the second would do the same.  But ten minutes from the end Belgium took the lead, and Norway seemed to be headed for their first defeat in Portugal.  Camilla Linberg had other ideas and scored the equaliser four minutes before the match ended.

The trainer said her team had delivered a good match and denied Belgium all but a few chances.  She was fairly happy with the performance.  "We started very well and followed the match plan closely, both in defence and attack.  Belgium started very high and we created many chances, so we should have had a goal or two early in the match", said Tyriberget.  The 1-1 equaliser at the end was a good one.  "It was a fantastic goal.  A great performance by Camilla Linberg who scythed through the box and thumped the ball up into the roof of the net from short range".

Tyriberget says a lot of positive things will be taken from the tournament.  "We have had some good and consistent performances through the three matches.  We have had good defensive play and allowed few chances to our opponents.  At the same time we have improved our attack and settled that down more, but we failed to sink some of the chances we created, especially in the last match, so we still need to improve", she said.

"But we have started some good processes, both in the playing style and in the team building.  There is a good spirit in the group and it has bee a good tournament for us with some good international matches", said Lena Tyriberget.

Belgium-Norway 1-1 (5-4 on penalties), U16 UEFA Development Tournament, Estádio Municipal , Castro Verde, 07-05-2015
Goals: 1-0 70, 1-1 Camilla Linberg 76.

Norway: Linn-Mari Nilsen - Kristin Müller, Malin Brenn (Camilla Huseby 40), Emilie Closs (Sara Gran 40), Silje Bjørnebo, Synne Vatnem (Olaug Tvedten 61), Sophie Haug, Noor Eckhoff (Ida Giske 48), Ine Sofie Østmo (Camilla Linberg 40), Elise Stenevik (Emilia Ruud 48), Celine Nergård.

Under-16s aiming high
« Reply #8 on: June 29, 2015, 09:15:03 AM »
The U16s are preparing for the Nordic Cup tournament which will be played in Denmark this week.

The squad is already in place in Denmark with several tough matches expected in the coming days.  "We have had a couple of good training sessions and the mood in the squad is very high.  We feel well prepared and everything is looking good", said trainer Roar Wold.

The team had a good result on their last trip, when they came out the winners in the UEFA development tournament in Portugal, early in May.  They all want to build on that experience.  "We want to continue the development in the right direction, with Euro qualifications (for next year's U17 Euros) starting in the autumn", said the trainer.

It's about development, but also results.  "Our goal is to win every match we play and to be the Nordic champions: at the same time we are meeting Germany in the first match, Europe's best opponents at this level, and we know that can go both ways", said Wold.  "We have Sweden and Iceland after that and those are matches we must win if we want to be the champions".  Their target of becoming Nordic champions allows for being beaten by non-Nordic teams who have entered this open championship, like Germany.

The tournament starts on Monday.  Wold says the Norwegian girls are ready for the challenge.  "We know how German teams always play, but we don't exactly know all their players at this stage.  We know their style and we have a very good team of robust players who are strong and skilled.  On a good day if we really work hard we can beat the Germans", he said.

The U16s' trainer thinks today's match will have a positive effect on the players, and all of them are up for it.  "We will get a really good indication of our ability.  There's nothing better than competing with the best.  That's how you find out where you stand, and the players get to understand the demands.  Looked at like that this is a perfect matchup for these girls", he said.

"They are geared up for this and there's always a bit of extra excitement when you meet Germany.  I think we are well motivated for a good performance", said Roar Wold.

Matches:
Monday June 29: Germany-Norway 18.00
Tuesday June 30: Norway-Iceland 15.00
Thursday July 2: Sweden-Norway 15.00
Saturday July 4: placing match.

Germany 2 Norway 1
« Reply #9 on: June 29, 2015, 07:44:09 PM »
The U16s did nearly as well as the A-team, coming back for a 2-1 loss against Germany this evening at the tournament in Denmark.  In the other match Sweden beat Iceland 1-0.

In spite of the loss the match was a positive experience for the team.  "We knew Germany were good but we were taken by surprise at the start.  They held an incredibly high level and were very aggressive, and we struggled to establish our game.  In the first 15 minutes we conceded a slightly unlucky goal, but we got into the match more and more", said Roar Wold.

"In the second half we raised ourselves a notch and in the last 20 minutes I thought we were better than them.  We created some good chances and played more of our own game.  Overall Germany deserved their win but we put in a performance that we can be pleased with", he said.

Norway's goal came from Noor Eckhoff at the end.  "She took a corner and bent the ball into goal.  It was a good period for us and we had just had a shot on the crossbar with the keeper nowhere near it", said the trainer.  "The girls delivered a fantastic amount of work all through the match.  They duelled with the Germans and ran huge distances.  They came back strongly after a tough start and you have to respect the job they did today.  The way we turned it round promises well for the next matches.  Despite losing we take good feelings from this match".

Before the match Wold had said that they would find out how the team stood when compared with the best.  "We learned that we can match Germany and we can create trouble for most teams if we have an optimum day.  Also we discovered how much higher the tempo is, relative to what we are used to.  That is where the difference is and we must work to reach that tempo ourselves", he said afterwards.

In a good Norwegian collective effort some players stood out a little more.  "The centre-backs were good througout the match and the midfielders laid down a huge amount of work.  Emilie Nautnes had a good match at the front", said the trainer.

Already on Tuesday the team will be in action again, this time against Iceland who lost 0-1 to Sweden on Monday, with a 15.00 kickoff.  "It will be a totally different match.  We saw that match, and Iceland have different skills from Germany but they have a high work-ethic and work well together.  Whether or not they turn the play their way, they will be difficult to play against", said Wold.

"There will be time for rest and recuperation then there will be a number of changes in the team, but that doesn't worry me at all, really.  The squad is even and today the substitutes lifted us when they came in", said Roar Wold.

Norway won a well played match at the tournament in Denmark this afternoon.  They created several big chances and the result came in the second half with a goal by Emilie Nautnes.

"It was a well deserved win.  Iceland competed hard but we steered the whole match", said trainer Roar Wold.  "We had a shot on the crossbar in the first half and some more quite useful chances, but we created more in the second half and had three or four big chances before the goal".

The goal by Nautnes was scored after a lot of to and fro in the box after a set piece.  "It was important for us to score.  We knew it would be a test of patience and Iceland had some good central players.  It was a well played match on a warm day", said the trainer.

"I am most pleased with the defence.  They were rock-solid and didn't allow any chances.  The players were disciplined and worked hard.  We also had some fine attacks although we should have had more chances", he said.

The third match is on Thursday when Sweden will be waiting for the Norwegians.  "It will be another tough match.  We met them at U15 level and I think we have a good chance of a win.  We'll be going for a win", said Roar Wold.  

Iceland-Norway 0-1 (0-0), Open Nordic, Denmark, 30-06-2015

Norway-Sweden this afternoon
« Reply #11 on: July 02, 2015, 12:33:07 PM »
Norway will play the final group match today in the Open Nordic championship in Denmark.  

Norway's Under-16 girls lost their first match to Germany and then had a 1-0 win over Iceland.  They are equal-second in the group with this afternoon's opponents, Sweden, but their better goal difference means that a draw would be enough to take Norway through to the bronze final.

Playing at the tournament are some non-Nordic nations like Germany, England and Netherlands.  If Norway reach the bronze final they have a good chance of taking the unofficial title of Nordic champions.

Sweden Norway 2-2
« Reply #12 on: July 02, 2015, 04:20:59 PM »
After Norway's 2-2 draw against Sweden yesterday the trainer described the match as special.  Norway delivered a solid first half and led 2-0 at half time, but Sweden came back in the second half with two goals.

"It's a rather special match.  We had a really good first half and carried out our match plan almost a hundred per cent in attack and defence.  It was a half that earns a lot of respect and we take it into our next match", said Lena Tyriberget.

Norway's goals were close together and the tem went from 0-0 to 2-0 in a couple of minutes.  "The first came after a fantastic attack after we built up from the back and came round on the right.  Emilie Nautnes ran up in front of goal to take the cross and score.  The other came after Sophie Haug was played through before she ran forward and placed the ball in gola", said Tyriberget.

The Norwegians could have had a third goal before half time, but in the second the weather was against them with a strong head-wind.  "We suffered the same as the Swedes had done.  It was difficult to know where the ball would go and we had an unlucky goal when it jumped over the keeper.  We lost our rhythm and became insecure and we had to be a bit smarter in defence with the wind against us.  But we adjusted things and managed to keep it to 2-2", said the trainer.

The draw puts Norway in second place in the group behind Germany.  "The result means that we play the 3rd-place match and if it goes right we will be able to call ourselves Nordic champions", she said.  Denmark were second in their group and will meet Norway to see which is the best Nordic team at the tournament.

Before that the Norwegians must recover and not be too affected by the unusual heatwave that has settled over the area.  "We played well in the warm conditions today and it's expected to be even warmer.  On Saturday they are forecasting Denmark's hottest-ever day so the full focus is on recovery", said Lena Tyriberget.

With Emilie Nautes just signed for Arna-Bjørnar it's another proof of the quality of player development in the Sunnmøre region.  The 16-year-old is moving to Bergen following in the tracks of many other players developed by former Fortuna trainer and now the player developer in the whole region round Ålesund, Magne Elde.

Last year Sigrid Heien Hansen took the same route to Arna-Bjørnar, and another Fortuna player, Kristine Leine, has just signed for Røa in Oslo.  She went the same way as Cecilie Fiskerstrand, now a Stabæk player and one of the country's biggest young goalkeeping talents, who has just returned with the Norwegian A-team from the World Cup in Canada.   All these players are in Norway's youth scheme which develops future A-team players.  

All this tells us that good work is being done in Møre og Romsdal by the trainer who has had a hand in training these players up for the big clubs.

Emilie Nautnes is in Denmark with the national U16 team and facing Denmark in the 3rd-place playoff at the Open Nordic tournament this afternoon.

That's how it ended.  Sounds like it wasn't their day but a great tournament.  Results at U15-U17 are pretty random, I was just reading about Switzerland knocking out Germany in the U17.  The real winners are the one's who run great programs and participate... and keep things in perspective.  Hopefully there's lots of that going on.

Yes, so the U16s have finished 4th.  Less than they expected and they hand over to Denmark as the new Nordic champions, but they go home much the wiser.
 
Solveig's thoughts coming home from the World Cup are worth a read.

Denmark best in Nordic area
« Reply #18 on: July 04, 2015, 04:57:32 PM »
Denmark won today's bronze playoff 3-1 against Norway and take the unofficial title of Nordic champions.

It was the teams' last match at this annual tournament, played this year in Denmark at an unknown venues(s).  The Final is being played between Germany and Netherlands, not normally considered Nordic nations, so the Norway-Denmark match was to find out which is the best Nordic team, not that there were any trophies for it.

The Danes took the lead after 14 minutes with the only goal of the first half.  Just after half time Emile Nautnes equalised for Norway but Denmark quickly struck back with two goals in two minutes to win 3-1.  So the home team occupies the top place among the Nordic countries.  

"Denmark were a notch better than us all the way today.  They are tough in duels and varied the play much more than I have seen a Danish team do before.  They played long a lot, which stressed us a little.  All in all they deserved to win", said Lena Tyriberget.

The trainer was not too pleased with her team's performance but thought the opening minutes were positive.  "It was a struggle.  We created chances in the first few minutes but Denmark were also dangerous in this phase.  There were a lot of turnovers and counterattacks both ways", she said.  "Then the Danes went up by a goal and we struggled to do things simply.  We were passive in attack and defence and didn't hold together as a team".

After a good talk at half time the Norwegians started the second half well.  "We adjusted things a little and equalised when Emilie Nautnes was played through and alone with the keeper.  After that we were good for a while but 2-1 came when we lost the ball in the centre and they came round on the right, crossed in and scored.  And then we conceded a rubbish goal making it 3-1 straight after that", said the trainer.  

"We did not lift ourselves fully after that.  We made some attacks and changed to three at the back, but we did not get the ball forward enough so there was no real result from that.  So we must learn from this match.  It's a development tournament and it's important to learn from the good and the bad matches", she said.

The season continues now with the U16s working towards qualification for next year's U17 Euros, matches that will be played in the autumn.  "It was a bit of a downturn today, but all in all it has been a useful tournament for us.  As far as the play goes, we should have topped it off with a better performance today.  In the first half of our previous match against Sweden we saw what is possibly our top level, and we'll take that with us in our work for the qualification", said Lena Tyriberget.
