Football: Norway names squad for Turkey clash

ISTANBUL 

Norway's national football team on Friday announced its squad to play against Turkey in their 2022 World Cup European Qualifying game.

Borussia Dortmund's Erling Haaland and RB Leipzig's Alexander Sorloth, along with Galatasaray's Martin Linnes have been called to the Norwegian squad for the Turkey game.

The match between Turkey and Norway has been moved to Spain's Malaga from Norway's capital Oslo due to travel restrictions against the novel coronavirus.

The match was scheduled to be played on March 27 at Ullevaal Stadium but will be played at La Rosaleda Stadium at 1700 GMT.

Turkey will take on the Netherlands, Norway, Montenegro, Latvia, and Gibraltar in Group G of the European Qualifiers.
