Alexander Sørloth has been selected for Norway’s upcoming friendly matches against Australia and Albania during the international break later this month.
The January signing is set to win his first caps for his country since his deadline day move from FC Copenhagen, and Norway boss Lars Lagerbeck has been pleased with how the 24-year-old has applied himself so far in England, saying: "It means a lot for a player to take that step and play in a big league. He took a big step in Denmark and has been playing in the Palace team.”
Having not secured a place at the World Cup in Russia, Norway are rebuilding ahead of the UEFA Nations Cup, and in preparation for that competition’s kick-off Lagerbeck’s team take on the Socceroos in Oslo on Friday 23rd March before heading to Albania four days later.
Sørloth has won 12 caps for his country since making his debut in the summer of 2016, scoring once against Iceland in his second appearance. He is only one of two players who currently play in the Premier League named in the 24-man party, with Bournemouth’s Joshua King the other.
