Norway boss looking forward to Hampden trip

Norway boss Age Hareide today named his squad for the World Cup qualifying double-header against Scotland and Holland - and admitted Hampden is one of his favourite stadiums.

Brann midfielder Erik Huseklepp has been handed a first call-up after a series of eye-catching performances in the Norwegian league and in Europe.

Valerenga defender Kjetil Waehler also gets the nod as a replacement for the injured Tore Reginiussen.

The 23-player party includes Barclays Premier League players John Carew, Morten Gamst Pedersen and captain Brede Hangeland, but there is no place for Lillestrom's former Celtic defender Vidar Riseth.

Stabaek goalkeeper Jon Knudsen, 33, is expected to make his debut in the October 11 Group Nine clash with Scotland at Hampden, with regular first choice Rune Almenning Jarstein (foot) struggling for form and fitness.

Former Manchester City and Norwich defender Hareide cannot wait for his side's trip to Glasgow, where Norway won in a qualifier for the 2006 World Cup on their last visit.

''I love arenas like Hampden, I did as a player and do as a coach,'' he said. ''The Scottish fans never give up and also applaud the opponents if they plays well. For a player who copes with the atmosphere, this is the perfect place to play.''

He added: ''This is a very important game for us. We lost two points against Iceland, and have to win points now.

''We won there four years ago and aim to repeat that.''

Squad:

Goalkeepers: Rune Almenning Jarstein (Rosenborg Trondheim), Espen Johnsen (Stromsgodset), Jon Knudsen (Stabaek)

Defenders: Brede Hangeland (Fulham), John Arne Riise (AS Roma), Tom Hoegli (Tromso), Atle Roar Haaland (Odense), Kjetil Waehler (Valerenga), Morten Morisbak Skjonsberg (Stabaek)

Midfielders: Martin Andresen (Valerenga), Christian Grindheim (Heerenveen), Morten Gamst Pedersen (Blackburn Rovers), Bjorn Helge Riise (Lillestrom), Per Siljan Skjelbred (Rosenborg Trondheim), Jan Gunnar Solli (Brann Bergen), Fredrik Stromstad (Le Mans), Fredrik Winsnes (Stromsgodset)

Strikers: John Carew (Aston Villa), Thorstein Helstad (Le Mans), Mohammed Abdellaoue (Valerenga), Erik Huseklepp (Brann Bergen), Steffen Iversen (Rosenborg Trondheim), Daniel Braathen (Toulouse).
