Norway coach Martin Sjögren saw reason to change after the 4-1 win over Northern Ireland and brought in Hansen, Boy Ressa and Civic in place of Sonstefold, Manum and Ekland (all off the bench). After the 1-0 win over Austria in the opening match, England coach Sarina Wiegmann said: “Never change the winning team.” However, it had the associated “disappointing performance”. Something the Dutch are unlikely to say after the match against Norway.

It’s already 2-0 after a quarter of an hour

Because the Lionesses presented their opponent shortly after sampling: after just twelve minutes, Stanway made the score 1-0, which turned safely from the point. Just three minutes later, a goal was denied by Hemp, initially denied for offside, and rightly awarded by Germany’s VAR Christian Dingert (15).

What followed was a show of strength from EM hosts at Brighton & Hove. Although Norway had a good chance initially with Saevik, the number 9 was neglected. Nearly half an hour later, the Nine Women’s England Wyatt showed her how it’s done, defeating the ball by herself and deliberately netting it (29 min).

England fill half a dozen before the end of the first half

England played itself in a frenzy and did not give up. White initially missed another chance (27), and Petersen in Norway’s goal finally managed to outperform the striker (32). But in the space of seven minutes, Wiegmann’s side filled a half-dozen: double-player Meade (34′, 38′), who polished a brilliant solo with his second goal, and Wyatt, who also scored twice, made it 6-0, 41 minutes. .

The fact that the match was not 7-0 in the break was due to the fact that England were not fully effective. White missed some chances, especially since the big missed opportunity in the 45th minute must have upset her. On the flip side, Hegerberg once stumbled into a promising position (43′).

The second half did not change much, although England were not convincing. Shortly before being replaced, White nodded again (57 minutes).

Jokerin Russo makes the score 7-0, Mead for third

Several changes in the EM hosts in the remaining time sometimes slowed the speed down a bit. In general, England continued to dominate, but no longer gave everything. The Lionesses still had 7-0 up their sleeve: Jokerin Russo nodded undisturbed (66th place).

England’s eighth goal did not come at the start, in part because Greenwood hit the crossbar only (74th place). On the other hand, Meade scored a goal and only had to accept her third goal (81). Even 9:0 was possible – but since Toone missed (84th place), he “only” stayed at 8:0. The biggest defeat of the completely overshadowed Norwegians was for sure. Just like the group victory for England, which celebrated the team’s highest victory during the European Championship – for men and women.
