Haaland’s 25th goal helps keep Norway in Euro 2024 hunt

Norway defeated Georgia 2-1, keeping their chances of qualifying for the Euro 2024 tournament alive. Erling Haaland scored his 25th goal in 26 appearances for Norway’s national team, helping Norway win.

The home team was dominant throughout the encounter at the Ullevaal stadium in Oslo, and the 23-year-old striker scored the first goal after 25 minutes. Eight minutes later, their captain, Martin Odegaard, added a second goal to extend their advantage.

Budu Zivzivadze scored a goal for Georgia in stoppage time, which shook the nerves of the Norwegian team playing at home. Norway needed all three points to be in the running for one of the two qualifying positions from Group A. Georgia was playing against Norway.

Stale Solbakken, the manager of Norway, said that his team became a more dangerous opponent as the match progressed.

“We got off to a rather poor start, but we never lost control of the situation. They concealed themselves extremely effectively and lay quite low. After that, we steadily increased our risk to the community,” he said.

Before they scored a tiny bit out of nothing, we were in complete control of the situation for a long period.

After five games in the group, Norway is in third place, eight points behind Scotland, which is in first place, and two points behind Spain, who has played one game less than Norway.
