It will be a lot of fun
January 25, 2017
On Friday you will play a historical semi-final against Croatia, no Norwegian men’s team has ever gone that far in a World Championship – how do you feel about it?
KRT: Yes – it will be a lot of fun. As you said it’s a historic semi-final for Norway and a very important game. But we lost the last two games against them and we do look for revenge. Yet, we will play against an excellent team and it will be a thrilling match on Friday.
How do you rate your chances against Croatia?
KRT: Really good. Now, we have a great opportunity and anything can happen in a semi-final. Maybe we are the underdog but I do think we have a very good chance to succeed in this game.
You really believe that Norway is the underdog in this quarter-final match?
KRT: Yes, I do think so. Croatia has a real good and experienced team – I don’t even know how many semi-finals and finals they have played over all these years. That counts for something.
Do you already look beyond the semi-final against Croatia – possibly towards the final?
KRT: Yes, of course. But we do want to win the match on Friday (the semi-final ed.) first. It would be a dream come true if we can play in the final game of a World Championship.
