Norway played a difficult game against Egypt, which made many problems for the Scandinavians, but a fantastic right back Magnus Abelvik Rød (21) and Sander Sagosen scored 10 goals each, meanwhile, Torbjørn Begerud had very good periods in the Norwegian goal, when he saved clear chances and 7 meters.
