Foot­ball - Nor­way coach PerMathias Hogmo re­signs from his post

Malta Independent - - SPORT -

The Nor­we­gian soc­cer fed­er­a­tion says coach Per-Mathias Hogmo will step down af­ter three years in the job. With only three points from four matches in World Cup qual­i­fy­ing, Nor­way has lit­tle chance to qual­ify for the 2018 tour­na­ment in Rus­sia. The Nor­we­gians, who lost to the Czech Re­pub­lic on Fri­day, beat San Marino 4-1 for their only vic­tory so far in Group C. Ger­many leads the group with 12 points. Hogmo says he has “reached the point where the play­ers and (the fed­er­a­tion) weighed more.” Un­der him, Nor­way also failed to qual­ify for the 2014 World Cup and the 2016 Euro­pean Cham­pi­onship. It was un­clear who would re­place him.
