El Salvador 4, Norway 2

Pretty even first half followed by a bad second half for Norway. El Salvador kept the possession and Norway's fitness wasn't up to the task. Norway lead 2-1 after about eight minutes into the second half but ES got a free kick goal to tie, then a nice shot and then a late one when the game was out of reach. Could have gone either way and its another tough loss to take. El Salvador gets first place in the group, France gets second.

Just a quick question: Since you and France qualified for the quarters when es lost to Italy, who do you play in the quarters since we're first and France is second? Haha,

Hate to say I told you so but.....

Na na na na na na, hey, hey, hey, goodbye! No playoffs for Norway! I knew they wouldn't make it anyways with the quality players they have on their roster. Nice team Dufus! Maybe you will make it next year? Doubt it. One hit wonders!

I would not call Norway one hit wonders... They have been a quarter final team almost every year of this tournament. However this year they barely squeaked by two weak teams in Greece and Italy and they were out classed by the better teams in their pool. Norway is much weaker this year than Braden gives them credit for and I'm glad to see them not live up to his hype for once.

Do you know what a one hit wonder is ANON 5:50 AM? It's a team that hypes themselves up and will only win this tournament once, which means getting first place. Some people are so stupid. Wow.

I dont like norway nor do i think they are any good but at least a "one hit wonder" is better than a "no hit notta wonder"

Norway needs to upgrade their list of players and badly. That roster you have Duf is horrible.
