Norway to take "risks" in crucial Scotland clash

Norway's interim boss Egil Olsen admits his side will have to take risks against Scotland on Wednesday if they are to rescue their 2010 World Cup hopes.

The Norwegians are bottom of Group Nine, with three points from five games, and are still looking for the first win of the qualifying campaign.

George Burley's men are second behind section winners Holland, with seven points from five games, and know victory would eliminate Olsen's side and leave them needing a win against Macedonia at Hampden next month to secure second place and a possible play-off spot.

Asked if he was aware a win was crucial, Olsen - who took over his country for the second time in January after Age Hareide quit - retorted: "Don't tell me - I know. We will try hard. That means we have to take risks, bigger risks than normal - because 0-0 is useless for us.

"Scotland have good players but they have lost some since they beat Iceland in the last game. I don't know how much weaker they are - but I hope they are very much weaker.''

Olsen denied Norway will simply launch an aerial attack via giant striker John Carew. He said: "I don't know why people think we are so defensive.

"When we play teams like Germany or Holland away from home we always squeeze the space and play on the counter-attack - but at home we play differently. We also have many football players with creativity and who are strong on the ball, as well as the physique of Carew.''
