Norway and their talents, Will they be enough?
The Up and coming from Norway (Part- 1).
In this article I want to talk about Norway and their talents. Most Football Manager Fans have already heard of players like Ødegaard and Ajer, But what about Sæter? Rossbach or even Sakor? A Lot of people want these to be among the starters for the Norwegian National team.
Some of them have already had their matches and some probably have to wait a couple of years before they get their first steps in the first team jersey. One player I personally want to see more of is John Hou Sæter, the midfielder plays for Rosenborg Ballklubb(RBK), He really played well in his 2016 season, for Ranheim on loan by playing 9 matches and scoring 3 goals from his midfield position.
When he was 10 years old he even entered a competition that Manchester United arranged out of 20000 he came second, which itself tells you about his skills in general. So far he is also the youngest RBK player to debut, will be interesting to see him in the future.
A player not many norwegians actually have heard of, which might surprise. A product from Asker, Norway and Juventus, the young midfielder, has proven that he can handle speed, endurance and the fighting spirit.
HE debuuted for Asker at the Age of 15, and just a few weeks later AC Milan wanted him for trial, but Juventus were the ones grabbing him. Though he has not played any matches for Juventus first team, eh has played for their U19 and U21 were he played as a starter.
In 2016 Vålerenga got him as a loanee, where he played 20 matches and scored 1 goal. Vålerenga did want to keep him but Vajebah said he wanted to prove Juventus that he could be a potential starter so on he went to Willem II.
Sondre Løvseth Rossbach
The future of goalies from Norway, Sondre has at a young age already set records, broken records and played more matches than most players his age.
Starting his career at Urædd he didn’t get many matches before Odd grabbed him. Now at the age of 21 he has a total of 91 professional matches, not many players at the age of 21 can say they have close to 100 matches, before age of 21.
He stands with 15 matches for the U21 and they predict him to be in the first team very soon. One thing very few now is that he has a record that Only Gianluigi Buffon is above him. YEs it’s done in the Norwegian Tippeliga, but it’s still an amazing feat. Have you guessed it? It’s the clean sheet record. He has the Norwegian record with 696 minutes without conceding goals.
Now you would think oh but maybe his team has an amazing defence? They did have a good defence yes, but his saves perGame statistic was very high, around 68.6% so He has every right to have this brag right.
I hope you found this article interesting, in my next I will cover the legends of Ødegaard and Ajer. Hope to see you there.
