While a win over Norway would be a welcome boost the real test will come on Monday against a Switzerland side that showed plenty of promise at the World cup, reaching the knock out stages.
The game at Wembley has failed to capture the imagination of the footballing public with an expected gate of between 35,000 to 40,000 set to watch the game.
