Minute By Minute

  • 69
    Van de Ven (Netherlands) has an effort on goal.
  • 67
    Hansen (Norway) misses the target.
    Really positive play again from Caroline Hansen, but at the end of her surge into the box she opts for a low shot from the acutest of angles rather than a cross, and the ball dribbles past the far post.

    Taken aback by a fast immediate attack, the Dutch defence cannot get set, and Norway have two efforts on goal. Neither ends up troubling the keeper.
  • 46
    Stensland (Norway) has a shot blocked.
  • Start Time
    The second half begins.
    Norway kick-off, and are immediately on the attack - clearly keen to score early and assert their authority here after the Netherlands were beginning to control the contest.
  • End Time
    The referee blows for half-time.
    A breathless first 45 comes to a close with neither side on the scoresheet, although the Netherlands will be the happier side having pressed more and worked the better openings as the half wore on.

  • 39

    Kirsten van de Ven shows neat footwork and works herself some room, but the shot from distance is low and lacks power, and it is gobbled up by Ingrid Hjelmseth.
