Norway can still make a bid for promotion to the highest division in the Nations League on Wednesday. The Norwegian Football Association is sending a B-team to Austria, because the A-internationals are in quarantine due to a corona infection.

Selection led by coach Young Norway

In that B-formation there is room for three Eredivisie players. Hakon Evjen (AZ), Jørgen Strand Larsen (FC Groningen) and Sondre Tronstad make their debut for the national selection of their country. The three already played for Young Norway.

Norway should have played against Romania in Bucharest on Sunday evening, but that match was canceled because the Norwegian government forbade the footballers to board the plane. The players were already at the airport when the announcement came in.

The reason for the travel ban was a positive corona test by international Omar El Abdellaoui, who played a handful of matches for Feyenoord in 2012. Presumably, the game against Romania will be turned into a regulatory 3-0 defeat.

To ensure that there is not also a line through the duel with Austria in Vienna on Wednesday evening, the Norwegian association has put together a completely new selection. It will be led by Leif Gunnar Smerud, the national coach of Young Norway. The actual national coach Lars Lagerbäck stays at home.

“It was tough, but we are happy that the game can continue. Not only for sporting reasons, but also to fulfill our obligations to UEFA,” said a statement released by the Norwegian association on Monday.

Norway and Austria compete in Vienna for promotion to Division A of the Nations League. Assuming that the duel with Romania is declared lost, an away is necessary for the Norwegian occasional formation.
