Lagerbäck, who coached Nigeria at the 2010 World Cup in South Africa, has also managed the Swedish and Iceland national teams.
“This is a challenge that really motivated me. Achievements and results so far in the World Cup qualifiers have not been good, ” said Lagerback.
“We must be honest about where we stand, while I see the potential in this team
“Two highly important and crucial battles are next. It will be tough, demanding and exciting. And I am really motivated for the task, says coach Lars Lagerback, who starts work immediately.”
The 68-year-old Lagerback has signed a contract that will run out in 2019, and will be in the dugout when Norway tackles Northern Ireland in a World Cup qualifier on March 26.
