Norwegian national football team-Landslaget

The Norwegian national football team (Landslaget) represents Norway in international men's football and is controlled by the Norwegian Football Association, the football association in Norway. Norway's home stadium is the Ullevaal Stadion in Oslo and its head coach is Lars Lagerbäck. In February 2019 they were ranked by FIFA in 48th place.

Norway have played three times in the FIFA World Cup (1938, 1994, 1998) and once in the UEFA European Championship (2000).

Norway are the only national team unbeaten in all games against Brazil football. In four games, Norway has a game record against Brazil of 2 wins and 2 draws, in three friendly matches (1988, 1997 and 2006) and a 1998 World Cup group game.

Norway had its most successful time from 1990 to 1998 under the legendary coach Egil "Drillo" Olsen. At its peak in the mid-90s, the team was ranked # 2. Olsen began his training career in Norway with a 6-1 home win against Cameroon on 31 October 1990 and ended it on 27 June 1998 after a 0-1 defeat against Italy in the second leg of the 1998 World Cup.

At the 1994 World Cup in the USA football, Norway was beaten in the group stage after beating Mexico football, losing to Italy and drawing a tie against the Republic of Ireland. Norway were unable to qualify for second qualifying on goal difference as all 4 teams in the group finished with 4 points. At the 1998 World Cup in France Norway retired in the first round of the knockout round against Italy after it had scored in his group the second draw with Morocco and Scotland and won against Brazil 2-1.

Former U21 coach Nils Johan Semb replaced Olsen after his planned resignation. Under Semb's guidance, Norway qualified for the European Championship 2000, which is still their last final. Semb retired after an unsuccessful qualifier in 2003 and was replaced by Åge Hareide. Under Hareide, Norway almost reached the 2006 World Cup and Euro 2008, but ultimately fell short of expectations on both occasions. Then, in 2008, everything collapsed when Norway did not win a single game in the entire calendar year. Hareide resigned at the end of 2008. His replacement was initially temporarily returnee Egil Olsen, who began his second term with an away win against Germany and then signed a three-year contract. Olsen resigned in September 2013 after Norway lost at home to Switzerland and had limited chances to qualify with a free game for the 2014 World Cup. He was replaced by Per-Mathias Høgmo. Olsen later claimed that he had been released.
