Solbakken: Bournemouth striker King a one-man army; like Carew

FC Copenhagen coach Stale Solbakken is full of praise for Bournemouth striker Josh King.

King had an eventful performance for Norway's 1-0 win over Bulgaria and Solbakken is adamant he is the best his country has.

"When he manages to exploit his physique and his speed like against Bulgaria, he becomes a 'John Carew light', a one-man army. I think you see that he has played many matches in the Premier League, he has become tactically wiser," said Solbakken.

"He is better in the air too.

"What I see from him is very, very positive. I think he is the player Norway is clearly the most dependent on to succeed against the very best nations."
