So, don't count out Norway yet, they should have a chance if they can act as a TEAM and have a bit of luck in that QF game
I know what you mean, but there is different coaching now. Coach Bill is a system guy - everyone plays the system, and if not, they sit, superstar or not. The whole focus is defense, which has been Russia's strong suit this year, as opposed to the last 4 years or so when it was the biggest weakness.
