Norway team analysis

Norway team analysis

• 1-4-4-2 pushed back into 1-4-5-1 in opening game against England
• Emphasis on deep, compact well-organised defending
• Dangerous counterattacks based on direct supply to front runners
• Attacks supported by wide midfielders and, occasionally, full-backs
• Good use of long passing over midfield; rarely built through thirds
• Aerial power = very dangerous set plays; five in goal area at corners
• Athletic, physically strong team; powerful runs, good work ethic
