Albania were denied the chance to go top of FIFA World Cup qualifying Group E as a late Tom Høgli goal gave Norway a point in Tirana.

Valdet Rama had handed Giovanni de Biasi's side a 41st-minute lead at the Stadiumi Kombëtar Qemal Stafa and it seemed his goal would be enough to take Albania above Switzerland at the head of the table. Norway and Høgli had other ideas, though, the defender's 87th-minute intervention keeping his fourth-placed team in touch in a tight section.
