In the morning after training I go home to Norway and joins the national team. I can not contribute on the pitch, but I will contribute all I can outside the pitch with my experience. The boys need support and there I can contribute a lot, and I’m really looking forward to going home and see the national team guys again. We have an incredible team spirit in the team and it is important that we take care of that. I am getting treatment from the incredibly talented people in the medical staff on the national team so I’m in good hands while I’m at home. Although I have an incredible desire to play these games, I am hundred percent sure that the guys coming in is going to be excellent. We have many good players on the team who can come in to fill gaps.
