Henriksen Wins 50th Cap For Norway In Sweden Draw

09 September 2019
Markus Henriksen won his 50th international cap as Norway were held to a 1-1 draw by Sweden in Stockholm on Sunday night.

The midfielder was included from the off by Lars Lagerbäck and played 64 minutes in the Euro 2020 Group F qualifier before being replaced by Tarik Elyounoussi.

The hosts had the upper hand for most of the first half but it was Norway who led at the break when Josh King pounced on a mistake by Andreas Granqvist and squared for Stefan Johansen to fire home on the stroke of half-time. However, the Swedes secured a share of the spoils through Emil Forsberg’s 58th minute equaliser.

With all of the six teams having played six games, Spain lead the group on a maximum 18 points following a 4-0 win over the Faroe Islands, with Sweden second on 11 points, Romania third on 10 and Norway one point further back in fourth.
