Olsen: We Were Lucky

Norway coach Egil Olsen believes that his side got lucky with their 1-0 win over Bafana Bafana in Cape Town on Tuesday night.

The visitors took the lead through Tarik Elyounoussi late in the first-half and held onto the advantage thanks to some spirited defending.

The South Africans created some good chances in the game, but poor finishing and strong defending allowed Norway to leave with a victory.

"We are more happy with the result rather than the performance. I think we were a bit lucky - we met a strong team, and we were a bit lucky to win the match. But that's how it is in football sometimes," he said.

"We had a very young team, many of them play in the U21 team and I think the managed quite well. Many of them for sure will play for Norway in the future. I'm very happy with the young players."

Regarding the home side, he added, "It was a good match from South Africa, I think they were quite good. Very good technique, clever with the ball, good skills - but I think they played to many passes backwards, I think they should go a bit more forward."
