Second cap for Bjorn

14th June 2017

Bjorn Johnsen continues to gather international recognition with Norway.

Bjorn Johnsen won his second cap for Norway last night in their friendly match against Sweden.

The Hearts striker was in the starting line-up as Mohammed Elyounoussi gave the hosts a first-half lead, before Sweden bagged a late equaliser through Samuel Armenteros.

Bjorn was replaced in the 56th minute after winning his second cap in three days, in what was his first introduction to the Norway squad.

Meanwhile, Arnaud Djoum’s Cameroon suffered a heavy defeat against Columbia in a friendly encounter.

Arnaud was introduced at half-time, by which point the Indomitable Lions were already 2-0 down thanks to goals from Real Madrid’s James Rodriguez and Yerry Mina. Mina got his brace early in the second-half and Jose Izquierdo completed the rout late on, but not before Cameroon’s Ndip Tambe saw red.

Arnaud’s Cameroon begin their Confederations Cup campaign on June 18th against Chile, before facing Australia and Germany.
