When and where: The friendly international kicks-off from the Ullevaal Stadium in Olso at 2.45 p.m. ET. A live stream will be available via ESPN3.com. ESPN Deportes will carry live T.V. coverage.
Preview: Roy Hodgson will lead out England for the first time as he looks to make his swift preparations for Euro 2012. Hodgson was only appointed to the job earlier this month and has had little time to mold his squad with the tournament now less than two weeks away.
The England boss has already selected his party of 23 for the championships, but many of those players will be absent from the lineup in Norway. The contingent who triumphed in the Champions League final for Chelsea, as well as John Terry, have not yet joined up with the squad. Wayne Rooney is also still enjoying an extended break, with the forward set to miss the first two games of the Euros through suspension.
Hodgson suffered an early blow to his preparations with goalkeeper John Ruddy breaking a finger in training and being ruled out of for the summer. In his place has come standby Jack Butland, who spent the past season on-loan at League Two Cheltenham from Birmingham.
Glen Johnson and Danny Welbeck are also likely to miss Saturday's friendly after both failed to take a full part in training.
In his Friday press conference Hodgson confirmed that Steven Gerrard and Scott Parker will line-up in the midfield, while Andy Carroll would start up front. With Joe Hart rested, Robert Green will start between the sticks.
The absentees are also likely to mean that Everton's Phil Jagielka, only on standby, will start at center-back.
Norway will not be at Euro 2012 after narrowly missing out on reaching the playoffs on goal difference, in a group featuring Denmark and Portugal.
Norway (probable, 4-5-1): Jarstein; Hogli, Hangeland, Demidov, Riise; Tettey, Grindheim, Henriksen, Huseklepp, Pedersen; Abdellaoue.
England (probable, 4-4-1-1): Green; Jones, Jagielka, Lescott, Baines; Milner, Parker, Gerrard, Downing; Young; Carroll.
Prediction: Roy Hodgson is likely to have focused on organization and defensive shape in his limited time with the squad so far, evidence of which should be visible against Norway. With limited time available before Euro 2012 and limited talent in the squad, Hodgson's defensive first approach should be the best way to maximize success.
It may not be pretty and there are likely to be a few teething problems in the first match of Hodgson's reign.
