In the wake of Norway’s 1-0 loss last night to the Netherlands, its chances of qualifying for the 2010 World Cup are almost down to zero. Norway currently sits in last place in Group 9 with only 2 points. Not surprisingly, journalists and fans are calling for the head coach, Åge Hareide, to quit.
“I’m willing to take responsibility,” says team’s head coach, “but I’m not willing to quit just because a bunch of journalists want me to.”
Well, Åge, perhaps you should quit because your team hasn’t won a match in 2008, not because anyone is telling you to.
