Joshua King criticised Norway’s tactical efforts out on the field in the European Championship qualifiers against Romania on Friday. His team gave away a 2-0 lead and only got a 2-2 draw.

‘’This was déjà vu, Sweden yes’’ he said in the press zone.

‘’We are too kind, the mentality is too kind.It must be changed. We led 2-0 after 75 minutes. Point one: spend much longer celebrating when we score after 70 minutes.It’s not easy to score in football, so enjoy that feeling. We spent a minute and a half.

Use three instead’’ King continued.

King said what be thought Norway should do. Certainly, taking on a few yellow cards, going out on time and not giving away the ball so

Lagerbäck accepts some guilt?

‘’I totally disagree with that. He and Perry (Per Joar Hansen) gave their messages. We were the ones who disappointed them today’’ said King.

In March, Norway led 2-0 over Sweden and ended up with only a 3-3 draw. That match was also played in Oslo.
