Solveig Gulbrandsen, who quit the game three years ago before making a comeback, showed the way forward for Norway's talented youngsters by firing the second-half winner which leaves the two-time champions well placed to qualify from UEFA Women's EURO 2013 Group B.

The 32-year-old midfielder sent a rising shot into the net ten minutes into the second half to reward Norway's best spell of the game and give them the leadership of the section on four points. It was a disappointing way for the Netherlands to follow up their impressive draw with Germany and they now have it all to do against Iceland in their final group game.

Minute By Minute

  • 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.
  • End Time
    The final whistle is blown.
    Still the Netherlands' woes against Norway continue. Even Pellerud's side created less than their opponents, but defended resolutely and had the quality when it mattered - Solveig Gulbrandsen's superb finish.
