Sport: – There were huge chances, and I should have scored on the first one. On the second one the goalkeeper made a great save, but on the first one I should of course have hit the target. Then it would have gone in, he said after the 1-3 loss.

– It is something we have practiced and know we are good at. It’s a shame I didn’t score.

After games and chances, Norway should have got a better result, but again the team conceded cheap goals.

– We have to take the positives with us, and then we have to weed out the mistakes that everyone is talking about, and of which we are very aware. We have to think that we are going to fix it. In the 2nd half, we showed that we are a good team, and we actually ran quite well over them.

Østigård did not become a popular man at Brøndby Stadium when, in the first half, he stopped a promising Danish counterattack by bringing down Rasmus Højlund in a way that the Danes reacted strongly to.

– I spoke to him about it afterwards. Didn’t mean to do anything bad. For me it was just about stopping a dangerous counterattack. He understood and there was no problem after that. He is a fair guy, said Østigård.
