Norway beats Lithuania 1-0 in friendly
Morten Gamst Pedersen scored in the 83rd minute Tuesday to give
Norway a 1-0 win over Lithuania in a friendly.
The 29-year-old Blackburn midfielder sent a penalty kick
straight at goalkeeper Ernestas Setkus, but converted the rebound
after the ball landed right at his feet.
Lithuania created several chances in the game but could not find
a way past Rune Almenning Jarstein in the Norwegian goal.
Norway lost 1-0 to Portugal in a Euro 2012 qualifier at the
weekend and is locked in a three-way tie with Denmark and Portugal
at the top of Group H.
Lithuania, by contrast, suffered an embarrassing 2-0 defeat
against Liechtenstein and has just four points from its opening
five games in Group I.
