I never wrote a preview for this game because I was too tired, but I would have said 5-2. So Norway did better than I expected and in the process went to first place in Group B.
This game was chippy. Both teams came out hard and giving it their all, as it was a must-win for both, and some tackles definitely bordered on dirty. Norway scored early when Josh Gyurek beat his man one-on-one and Justin Slinn followed up with a tip-in. 2-0 Norway after seven minutes. Sierra Leone got one back, but that was the only time they came close to scoring the rest of the game.
Reis Cooper got a hat-trick for Norway to take his goals to seven for the tournament so far, and Justin Sawka added one more. 6-1 for Norway.
