Henriksen And Grosicki Set For Euro Qualifiers

06 June 2019
The domestic season may have come to an end, but two members of the Tigers’ squad will have the chance to add to their international caps over the coming days.

Skipper Markus Henriksen and his Norwegian international team-mates will look to get their Euro 2020 qualifying campaign back on track after picking up just one point from a possible six in their opening two Group F matches.

First up for Norway is a home clash against Romania at the Ullevaal Stadion in Oslo on Friday, before travelling to face the Faroe Islands on Monday.

Group F also contains Euro 2008 and 2012 winners Spain and 1992 European semi-finalists Sweden, who are currently first and second in the group respectively. However, Norway’s success in the Nations League last year means that they will be guaranteed at least a play-off place for qualifying into next year’s tournament regardless of their Group F finish.

Grosicki, meanwhile,  is part of a 28-man Poland squad selected by Head Coach Jerzy Brzęczek to face Northern Macedonia and Israel.

The flying winger, who has 66 games and 12 goals to his name at international level, will be looking to help his national side maintain their perfect start to the qualifying campaign following victories over Austria (1-0) and Latvia (2-0) in March.

Poland travel to Skopje to take on Northern Macedonia on Friday before hosting Israel at the Stadion Narodowy in Warsaw three days later.
