Norway takes on the Dutch and English

(January 20, 2011)

The Norwegian national team is spending some time in sunny Spain this week, as they get in some early preparation for this summer’s World Cup.   While in La Manga, Spain, they will take on the national teams of the Netherlands today, Jan. 20, and England tomorrow, Jan. 21, as those teams also prepare for the World Cup.

Norway coach Eli Landsem took a large roster to Spain for these early run-outs, and hopes to get some idea of who her core squad will be for this summer.  Making the trip south were:
