The draw for the 2010 World Championship is over, and Norway will face The Netherlands, Scotland, Macedonia and Iceland. Based on the current rankings, Norway will be third of course, but there is always hope of something better... (Only the winners of each group go directly to the World Championship, second place only gives an opportunity for a play-off.)
As the matches will not start for another nine months or so, the newspapers are desperate to find something to report on. Dagbladet has interviewed Erik Nevland, a Norwegian who plays soccer in Groningen - he reports that his Dutch team mates think (as almost anyone else in the world) that Norway will be an easy match in this qualification. Well, we'll see.
