Re: Mikkel Diskerud can choose US or Norway NT Just for comparison sake: USA have won the CONCACAF Gold Cup (The Regional Championship) the last 2 times: 2007, 2005. Norway have not qualified for the UEFA European Championship since 2000(1st Round). USA have qualified for the last five World Cups, 2006(1st Round), 2002(Quarterfinals - Lost to eventual 2nd place team Germany 1-0), 1998(1st Round), 1994(2nd Round - Lost to eventual champions Brazil 1-0), 1990(1st Round). Norway have not qualified for a World Cup since 1998(2nd Round). Just to make clear: I'm not insulting Norway, and qualifying from UEFA is probably slightly harder than CONCACAF. I'm just providing the facts. I don't have the data, but I believe that USA has qualified for more World Youth Championships (U-20's) and Olympics (U-23's) than Norway.
