Semb to try out midfield pair

Norway's Nils Johan Semb will look at Martin Andresen and Jan Gunnar Sollie in the friendly against Scotland.

Missing men
"It was a bit tricky this time, as Øyvind Leonhardsen and Trond Andersen are looking for new clubs at the moment, while Eirik Bakke is out with a knee injury," said Semb as he explained the inclusion of Stabæk IF's Andresen and Rosenborg BK's Sollie.

Young and talented
"Martin has had his best and most consistent season for a long time and is now 100 per cent committed to playing for the national team, and I am very pleased with that. I have wanted to test Jan Gunnar Sollie for some time, and took the chance now, in a friendly. He is young, but has the talent to be an international player." The 23-year-old joined Rosenborg recently from Odds BK.

Assessing options
The match against Scotland in Oslo gives Semb the opportunity to assess his options before the UEFA EURO 2004™ qualifier away to Bosnia-Herzegovina on 6 September.

Norway squad
E Johnsen, Olsen, Andresen, Basma, Berg, Bergdølmo, Carew, H Flo, Hangeland, Iversen, F Johnsen, R Johnsen, Lundekvam, Riise, Solli, Solskjær, Strand.
