Portugal and Norway will have an important match tomorrow, for the Euro 2012 Qualification stage and both teams believe in their own chances to win the match. John Carew showed to be very confident about the game, but reckonized that Norway will need to have some luck and also expects that Cristiano Ronaldo isn't very inspired tomorrow. The game will be broadcasted live, here on ronaldo7.net.
John Carew noted that Cristiano Ronaldo is on a tremendous moment and he is sure that CR7 will be one of the main threats that Norway will have to deal with, in order to beat Portugal. Carew: "Cristiano Ronaldo did better than Lionel Messi this season. However, I think Messi is the best player in the World, even though this season Ronaldo was better. Cristiano Ronaldo did the best season of his life and it will be very difficult to play against him. I expect a very tough match."
John Carew: "Portugal has a great team, one of the best in the World, but we also have our own weapons and chances. Portugal will play at home and will probably have more ball possession throughout the game, but we will have to concentrate on defending very well. I'm confident we'll have two or three goal opportunities and I hope we can score at least one goal."
The Norwegian striker started his professional career in a small club in Norway, called Lørenskog, before transfering to Vålerenga in 1997.
