  • GOAL! The away side take an early lead! Johansen receives the ball along the right, cuts inside onto his left foot, and floats a cross into the hosts’ penalty area from deep. Elyounoussi arrives at the back post having peeled away from Smith, chests it down, and slots an effort beyond Peacock-Farrell from close range. 1-0.

  • GOAL! It is all square! Ballard sends the ball beyond the Norway defence and down the right flank for Washington to chase. The forward takes it down smartly before seeing his close-range effort well stopped by Jarstein, but McNair is on hand to fire in the rebound. 1-1.

  • ANOTHER GOAL! Norway are back in front! A long pass gets played forward towards Sorloth, who manages to direct the loose ball towards the edge of the box after Ballard failed to make the interception. Haaland opens up his body and unleashes a sweetly-struck left-footed strike into the bottom-left corner. Peacock-Farrell could do nothing about that. 2-1.
