England vs Norway: Women’s Euros preview


ngland and Norway will renew their familiar rivalry on Monday night in the second matchday of the Women’s Euros group stage.

Both sides claimed victories to open the tournament although the hosts were less-than-convincing in a single-goal win over Austria, while Norway downed Northern Ireland 4-1.

Martin Sjogren’s side have beaten the Lionesses in two of their last three meetings yet were knocked out of both the 2015 and 2019 World Cup by England.

Another victory for either side will surely confirm their passage to the next round as group winners, with these two teams comfortably the favourites to progress.
