Norway had a lot of chances but failed to score against Latvia at Ullevaal. The match ended 0-0. 

The Norwegian team struggled to get started in front of a packed Ullevaal but began to create chances at the end of the first half.

The team was dominant after a formation change at the break but did not manage to get the ball in the goal.

Two dropped points, coupled with Turkey’s rout of Gibraltar, means Norway’s team slips to third. Turkey leapfrogged them into second on goal difference.

Both teams are just a point behind the Netherlands, who can now secure qualification tonight if they win in Montenegro, The Guardian notes.
