EURO 2013: Runners-up

EURO best: Winners (1987, 1993)

How they qualified: Group 8 winners, W7 D1 L0 F29 A2 Pts22

Coach: Martin Sjögren

One to watch: Ada Hegerberg (forward, Lyon)

What to watch out for: In men's football they talk of Germany as a 'tournament team' but in the female game Norway have a claim to that title. They have exceeded expectations at the last three EUROs, getting to two finals and the 2009 last four, despite not possessing a squad to match their 1995 world champions or 2000 Olympic gold medallists.

Just like four years ago, they have qualified only to then change coach – this time Roger Finjord has departed, the assistant to Even Pellerud up until summer 2015 citing the commute to Oslo from his home in northern Norway as the cause. Results had also been mixed but Finjord's successor Sjögren, fresh from winning the Swedish title with Linköping, will inherit an exciting forward line of UEFA Best Women's Player in Europe 2015/16 Hegerberg, fit-again Caroline Graham Hansen and a re-inspired Isabell Herlovsen.
