Aaah… first game of the year. What can possibly be better? Well, propably the first game of the season, but whatever. If you want some informantion about the opponed, Kuban Krasnodar, see my last post.
The starting eleven was released earlier today, and it goes like this:
Lars Kristian Eriksen, Morten Fevang, Steffen Hagen, Emil Jonassen
Jone Samuelsen, Magnus Lekven, Simen Brenne
Adem Güven, Torgeir Børven, Elba Rashani
This is a lineup that can be likely to play when the season kicks off. The biggest question must be the defense, where Fredrik Semb definetly will fight for a spot in the central defence. If so’ it’s difficult to say whom of the central defenders that will be benched. Steffen Hagen is also good enough to fight against Eriksen for the right back spot.
I’m looking forward to see how it’s going with the new players, Lars Kristian Eriksen, and Adem Güven. Eriksen is well known in Norwegian football, while Güven have had only one season in Tippeligaen so far, with Kongsvinger in 2010. Back then he scored seven goals, which is pretty good for playing in a team who relegated. A video with these goals can be seen here. A trivia is that Kongsvinger actually played a friendly against Kuban Krasnodar that year. Kuban won with a goal scored late in the second half. Not that that’s gonna happen tomorrow though…
Unfortunately the game won’t be shown on TV(as far as I know).
