We won against Iceland even though we didn’t play our best. But with three points and an important lesson we’re better prepared for the game against portugal today. It’s important to forget the bad performance and just take the points with us and move on. It’s really important for us to get a good start to the EURO qualification, and we will only get a good start if we get a result in todays game. Three points away against Iceland is good, because several of our opponents will struggle on Iceland.
But for us to be happy we need points in this game as well, and Portugal is a really good team. To think they are not good just because they have injuries on important players is at best naive. There are several porugese that can play stunning football like Ronaldo, and believe it or not but there are other good managers beside Carlos Queiroz. A result from this game comes from hard work and full consentration. That means we have to play up towards our best in this game. One point is good, but we aim for three. The John Arne Riise injurie is a huge blow to us, but he is a quality player and any team would miss a player like that. But we can’t focus on the loss of Riise, but focus on that we actually can beat Portugal
Good luck to all off you, and good luck to all of us
