Flo gets Norway boost
Tore-Andre Flo
Flo has scored just four Premiership goals for Sunderland
Sunderland's out-of-form Norwegian striker Tore Andre Flo has been backed by his national side.

Flo has not scored this year but Norway's assistant coach Harald Aabrekk says he is still a prime contender to lead his country's attack in their Euro 2004 qualifier against Luxembourg.

"I feel bad for Tore Andre Flo, considering the situation he is in at Sunderland now," Aabrekk told Norwegian newspaper VG.

Aabrekk was in London on Saturday to watch Sunderland's 1-0 defeat to Fulham and said that despite Flo's lack of goals, the striker should not be despondent.

"Tore Andre was positive. He won a lot of balls in the air. I am sitting here with an analysis that is positive for him.

"Of course he has ended up in a dead end street since he has been playing for so long without scoring.

"But I still feel that it has been drawn a false picture of Tore Andre's effort."

Flo has managed just four Premiership goals since his move from Chelsea - the last of which came on 28 December.

"He is now at a club with both legs in the relegation battle. That does not fit his playing style," concluded Aabrekk.
