And at the end they fell short of their objective, but for sure they gained a lot of confidence and experience. And surely they will be determined to try harder the next time around.
It speaks to their abilities, that they managed to stay unbeaten at home against both the toppers, and that too under extreme pressure.
They surely will be bringing some of that resilience to the Aviva Stadium this Thursday.
Meanwhile, Erling Haaland should possibly be the unluckiest superstar in football right now. He is easily the best player in the world at the moment, but he does not have a major international team on his side to extend his exploits.
And at the same time his supposed arch-rival Kylian Mbappe is blessed to be part of the monstrous squad of France, which has already won the World Cup, and Nations League.
Ireland vs Norway Prediction
The Irish are scoring in plenty lately, but at the same time they are also conceding in huge numbers. In fact, their latest fixture ended in a 3-2 win for them at home against Armenia.
On the other hand, with the some gifted offensive players in their midst, the Norwegians are finding the back of the net in plenty. But they are failing to complement their frontline with a decent defense.
As such, the team takes part in goal-fests regularly, and one such match-up is expected this Thursday too.
Tips for Ireland vs Norway
Both Teams to Score @ 1.75
Over 2.5 Match Goals @ 1.90.
