Six goals in one period
The announced shock will not happen between Norway and England. It only took locals 12 minutes to open the scoring by disallowing a controversial penalty, but it will remain anecdotal only given the end result. Elaine White drops in the area after being dropped by a Norwegian defender, and the referee immediately whistles the penalty without checking the VAR. Georgia Stanway grabbed the ball and hit it brilliantly under the bar, the Norwegians’ first goal in a long evening (1-0, 12).
Four minutes later, the English already had a break, with a goal that was initially called off for offside, and then finally checked and accepted the VAR. In a very nice deep pass from Mead, Hemp managed to cut into the far corner by attempting a crazy pass on the wrong side of the leg but on the right side of the post (2-0, 16). England’s serial top scorer Elaine White managed to scratch a ball at the feet of the Norwegian defense and go alone to the goal to defeat Ada Hegerberg and her people (3-0, 29).

The only scorer on England’s first day, Bethany Meade is on the repercussions of a very good cross from Hemp, which she cut perfectly with a powerful header (4-0, 34th place). Four minutes later, the Arsenal striker already scored two goals, with an odd number in the Norwegian zone, as he dribbled past three defenders before crucifying the poor goalkeeper (5-0, 38). Another striker signing this evening’s double: Elaine White. Manchester City’s No. 9 cuts a Francesca Kirby kick into the far corner and allows the English to reclaim the blue record they set less than 24 hours ago against Italy (6-0, 41).
After this one-sided period, the pace of the match slowed down and coach Sarina Wegmann made the first changes. Among the outgoing was legend Eileen White, who enjoyed a standing ovation from every Amex stadium in Brighton. Among the arrivals was Alicia Russo, the Manchester United striker who scored after nine minutes with a header from a very good cross from Lucy Bronze (7-0, 66th place).
For the evening’s final goal, Beth Mead puts forward a hat-trick with a powerful shot from Keira Walsh that Maria Thorisdottir hits. He follows the Arsenal striker well and only has to recover from the flat of the foot at the entrance to the goal (8-0, 81). The English, who were not convinced in the opening match against Austria with a simple 1-0 victory, secured qualification in the quarter-finals thanks to this victory over a direct opponent. The Norwegians are temporarily relegated to third place in Group A.
