Norway striker John Carew insists Scotland should have lost five goals, conceded a penalty and had both Caldwell brothers sent off in tonight's World Cup qualifier at the Ullevaal Stadium.
The home side rans out 4-0 winners but, with the game scoreless, they were denied a decent penalty claim when Carew went to ground inside the penalty area following a challenge by Steven Caldwell.
Referee Alain Hamer was not so lenient towards Gary Caldwell in the 33rd minute when he clashed with Aston Villa striker Carew seconds after picking up his first yellow card.
Caldwell was sent packing for grappling with Carew and from the resultant free-kick, Norway defender John Arne Riise fired in the opener with the aid of a Scott Brown deflection.
A double from Morten Gamst Pedersen and a strike by Erik Huseklepp completed the rout but Carew should have been on the scoresheet when his close-range effort came off the bar and clearly went over the line before Scotland keeper David Marshall grabbed it.
Scotland dropped to third place in Group Nine on goal difference and need wins over Macedonia and Holland in their final two games if they are to have any hope of a play-off spot.
But Carew believed they were let off lightly in the Ullevaal Stadium.
"We didn't expect it to be that easy," he said.
"It was a good night for us, we had players in good shape and we did well.
"The referee gave yellow cards to both teams and he treated them the same way and it was a sending-off because there was a lot of pulling.
"And it could have been a direct red card for his (Gary Caldwell's) brother when he held me back and only got a yellow.
"It should also have been a penalty when he (Steven Caldwell) kicked my legs and the ball was well over the line so it was actually five-zero.
"It was 0-0 and he hadn't allowed it then it would have been serious but it was not a problem.
"I still think Scotland have a chance of finishing second, as do we."
