(May 10, 2011)
Playing a great game last Saturday, scoring four on a very tough England squad, our Norwegians have nothing to be discouraged about despite the loss. Norway will be looking to even its season record this weekend as they meet arch-rival neighboring Sweden, coached by former Norwegian assistant coach, Eric Miller. Ireland will also be coming off a loss last weekend, and will no doubt be fired up to avenge that.
Internationally, the Swedish are one of the top women's teams in the world, currnetly ranked 5h by FIFA. Sweden is ready to face the top teams in this Summer's World Cup in Germany, where they are grouped with the United States in the opening round. Norway, which is ranked 9th in the world, will also be there, facing such teams as Brazil in their opening round.
Be prepared for rain showers on Saturday.
