Team News

  • England new boys Calum Chambers and Danny Rose missed training on Monday with knocks but they are unlikely to let those rule them out of a first England cap.
  • Jack Colback has been ruled out of this game but could be available for the Switzerland game next week.
  • Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has recovered from a knock and will start.
  • Danny Welbeck rolled his ankle on Tuesday and is unlikely to be risked.
  • 15-year-old Martin Odegaard played 90 minutes in the 0-0 draw with UAE at the weekend but has not made the squad for the friendly against England.
  • Norway are preparing for a European Championship qualifier against Italy next week so will play a stronger team at Wembley.


  • Much has been made of the lack of quality available to Roy Hodgson, not only because of injuries ruling the likes of Theo Walcott, Adam Lallana and Luke Shaw out of these games, but also a general dearth in real top class players.
  • After a hugely disappointing World Cup, Hodgson has probably only not been replaced at the helm given a lack of other options, and he won't be cut much slack if the team slip up at all in qualification for Euro 2016.
  • Both teams begin their campaigns for that tournament next week with tough fixtures, against Switzerland and Italy, respectively.
  • A positive result here would do England's confidence the world of good, but this has the makings of everything about a badly-timed, underwhelming, low-paced and dull international friendly.

  • God England is boring, maybe apart from sturridge and sterling

  • @swagio Sterling yes, Sturridge NO his way to greedy

  • Such a boring game. England ZzzzZZzz

  • @morningstar total shots from norway: 2 i think i may like 'boring' matches

  • @Morningstar- It was a boring game but it's almost impossible to produce exciting football when you face a team intent on parking the bus as Norway did in the first half.

  • @SteveHyland Unless you have creativ players on the pitch, who can outplay defensiv teams...

  • nice prediction whoscored

  • Lambert for Rooney anyday

  • Should be a comfortable win for England, Norway are a very average side

  • @CraigGee Just as average as England ...

  • This comment has been deleted.

  • Anything else than a loss tonight for us norwegians will be a bonus.

  • Sterling and Henderson can cause some miracles.

  • England line up to face Norway - ---------------Hart--------------- ----Stones-Cahill-Jones-Baines---- Chambo-Henderson-Wilshere-Sterling --------Sturridge-Rooney----------

  • You'd have to think the Liverpool Children will see England to three points, if they all start .. Raheem is a monster for real

  • @Whoscored isn't he fully fit yet? Even not, he would still be better then Rooney or Townsend...

  • where the F**k is Lallana?

  • @swagio not yet fully fit,brendan don't wanna rush him in from injury.

  • @chinna oh, thanks

  • Hodgson needs to be sacked. It's like having a brick-wall block our progress having some ancient defensive manager with negative tactics in charge. A donkey could manage england through their qualifying group.. it will be a walkover.

  • Why does Hodgson not pick a genuine right-back in his squad? What does Clyne have to do to get picked?

  • Wembley barely full, worst England team in years, Rooney as unqualified captain. Norway should win this 1-2.
