Euro Vision: Henriksen’s summer dream

As Markus Henriksen prepares to help City in the final few months of the season, he also has one eye on reaching the Euros with Norway this summer.

A two-legged semi-final tie with Serbia in March stands in the way of the final, where the winner will earn their spot in this summer’s tournament.

The midfielder, on loan at City from Hull, was just seven years old Norway last competed in Euro 2000 (this is their only appearance in the competition).

With just the last hurdle to jump, Henriksen said: “That’s one of the best games to play. We have the home leg as well which has sold out. It is many years since Norway has been in the Euros so we are looking forward to it.

“Serbia are a good side but we already know how we are going to go about it. I’m looking forward to it, we have brilliant dynamics in our squad and brilliant young players. There is experience too and hopefully we will beat Serbia, to play that final game and give us a chance of reaching the competition next summer.

“It has been tough for Norwegian football. There have been good players in the Premier League and across Europe but with Lars Lagerbäck, he’s been with us a couple of years, there is something different. You can see that in our results but also in the way you see the young players have developed.

“Erling Braut Haaland is banging in goals for fun in the Championship League, Sander Berge with Sheffield United, so we have some very good younger players which is something we have missed in the past.

“You could always see with Erling he was a goalscorer, that’s the same for every place he’s been. I won’t like, nobody saw him being in the place he is now. He’s really in the flow and everything turns to gold.”
