Scotland travels to Norway this week, hoping to continue their unbeaten start to Euro qualification.
Steve Clarke’s team defeated Cyprus and Spain in their first two Group A games earlier this year.
Scotland now travels to Oslo for their first away encounter in the qualifying campaign against Norway before returning to Hampden to face Georgia.
Scotland must keep Erling Haaland quiet, according to national team assistant John Carver, although Norway will be concerned about certain Scots ahead of the encounter.
“You know what’s amazing?” he said. “When they play against the best, these guys are at their best.”We have a perfect example from the last game against Spain, when Rodri, who was just named player City’s player of the match in the Champions League final on Saturday, and you saw his emotions after the (Scotland) game, performed well.
“Yes, we must be aware that he (Haaland) is special, and they have one or two other special players, but we must also take care of ourselves and set our own high standards.”They will be concerned about some of our players, so we must concentrate entirely on ourselves. Deal with the problem; we’ll do one or two little things, but it’s all about us.”They’ll be concerned about guys like John McGinn, Scott McTominay, and Callum McGregor.
“They will have seen that we have a force to be reckoned with because they will have watched the Spain and Cyprus games.” As a result, people will see that we have some skill in our squad.”We do best when we are focused. The mentality of the lads going back in has been fantastic, so I have no doubt that they will be there; it’s up to us to put in the effort that brings us a positive result.”
