Norway braced for tough friendly



Norway striker Tarik Elyounnoussi expects a tough match against the champions of Africa on Saturday.

Speaking to fazfootball.com in Ndola, Elyounnoussi who will captain his side said he believed that Zambia will put out an experienced team for the much anticipated international friendly match.

Elyounnoussi, who has played 15 times for Norway, scored the only goal of the match when Norway defeated South Africa in a friendly match played in Cape Town on Tuesday.

"We were surprised to win against a good South African team. We surpassed our expectations because we had 7 or 9 players who were playing for the first time with the national football team," said Elyounnoussi.

"Zambia are the champions of Africa so it will be a big challenge for us. We will play under hot weather and before a crowd of 40,000spectators. That will be new for us because it is not always that we play under such conditions and before such big crowds."

The Norwegian forward added that he expected coach Egil Olsen to change tactics Saturday's match.

"Against South Africa our best players started on the substitutes bench. I think they will start against Zambia. You should watch out for Mohammed Fellah," he said.
