Serbia Preview - Wednesday 8:30 p.m.

Tonight is a game for Norway to show whether or not it can be an actual contender in 2011. The first game Norway played against England wasn't pretty to watch, but it did have a good result. If the Norwegians can take their effort from that game, improve on it, and rack up some goals-for, then I'm sure they'll be a lot more comfortable going into two games this weekend.

I didn't watch Serbia's game on Sunday, but from what I know of their players this should be a game Norway can take. The key will be to score early because Serbia is able to play a capable defensive game if the score is close. Once the Serbs need to score the midfield should open up, just like it did in the England game for Norway, and that's where the late goals came from.

If Norway can use its speed in the middle to create some good chances then I'm confident a comfortable win will happen tonight. Norway isn't the strongest team at scoring goals, but once its attackers have a few cracks, they usually get at least three. I'm expecting more tonight. Norway wins, 5-0.

Actual Result: 3-2 for Norway.

I think Norway will win the tournament this year. ROI is not good enough to beat the powerhouse Norway team. They are way too skilled. I'll be surprised if ROI can get more than two goals. GO NORWAY. Looking good out there guys.

Agreed, i think Norway could easily knock off France or ROI. The big game experience in this tournament helps, and not many other teams have that. i can't wait for the norway roi game, norway will come out flying and will probably win in convincing fashion. GO NORWAY! KEEP IT UP!

Norway is not going to beat ROI...ROI will win by atleast 4 or 5 goals----just cause Norway beat England, doesnt mean they can match up against a Power house like ROI---give your heads a shake

Serbia will be lucky to score 1 goal against Norway. Norway will beat ROI. Norway got some stellar defense to shut down those ROI showboats. Not a chance for those guys. Norway 5 ROI 2!!! Let's go NORWAY. We need someone to bring those ROI duds down to earth. They are more than beatable. Having scored 19 goals in two games is nothing considering one team was brand new with no defense or chemistry at all, and the other was just weak. Give me a break.

Simply stated, Serbia played well, got some lucky bounces, and had the ref in their back-pocket. I have never seen so many missed calls, bad calls, and one-sided reffing in I don't know how many years. Norway did not look good. They came out flat, as per usual, but did enough to win, as per usual. Norway is not going to be the most flashy team putting up a bunch of points but they seem to have a knack of playing up or down to their competition and they will prevail against every team in their pool, including ROI. VALHALLA!

hehehe simply stated Serbs could say the same about the ref. And Serbia didn't look good, they let two soft goals in and let you back in the game. Good luck to you guys. And you will need it in Q final.
