Norwegians name squad against Greece

OSLO – Norway coach Aage Hareide included both Riise brothers yesterday in a 23-man squad for a Euro 2008 qualifier against champions Greece in Athens on October 7. Liverpool defender John Arne Riise returns to the national side after missing Norway’s Group C wins over Hungary and Moldova with an ankle injury. His younger brother and Lillestrom midfielder Bjorn Helge Riise will get his first cap. Hareide also recalled Brann midfielder Peter Vaagan Moen to the squad, which remained largely the same as the line-ups fielded in Norway’s opening two qualifiers. Norway beat Hungary 4-1 in Budapest on September 2 and overpowered Moldova 2-0 at home on September 6. (Reuters)
