Georgia will host Norway in a Euro 2024 Qualifying match tonight. Kick off the match will begin at 12.00 ET. The hosts beat Mongolia 6-1 in a friendly match on Saturday. Meanwhile their Nordic counterparts lost 3-0 to Spain in their maiden Group A match.
The Norwegian Football Federation stated on Tuesday, 21 March 2023, that Norway forward Erling Haaland will miss the Euro 2024 qualifiers against Spain and Georgia due to a groin injury. Manchester City’s top scorer is also Norway’s top scorer with 12 goals in 15 international appearances.
Georgia are third in Group A with zero points having never played, while Norway are fourth with no points from a game. Both teams need a win to maintain their chances of qualifying for the Euro 2024 finals.
Georgia national team coach Willy Sagnol is predicted to field all the best players to win their first three points. One of the team’s key players is Khvicha Kvaratskhelia. Playing on the wing, the striker who plays for Napoli in Serie A is one of the rising young stars in Europe.
Together with Napoli, the 22-year-old player has contributed 12 goals and 10 assists for the team in the league this season.
Meanwhile, Norway will appear without the injured Erling Haaland. As a replacement, the Norwegian national team coach, Ståle Solbakken will rely on Alexander Sorloth up front, apart from of course the team captain, Martin Odegaard. Sorloth who now plays for Real Sociedad in the Spanish La Liga has a dangerous free kick and can score goals from distance.
