After a week off, Norway retakes the field bright and early in the first half of a double-header, facing Australia, led by first-time head coach Evan Leventhal and former Norwegian player, Bhargavi Kartik. Norway will be looking to improve on its scoring, having put away three in their last match, but ahving watched many more good chances go wide of the post, or straight to the keeper.
Internationally, the Australian women’s team is currently ranked 11th in the world by FIFA, and has qualified for next summer’s World Cup. Norway, ranked 7th, is coming off two wins against Ukraine which sealed Norway’s spot in the World Cup.
