England vs Norway - LIVE!

England Women secured safe passage into the Euro 2022 quarter-finals in the most emphatic of ways by beating Norway 8-0 on Monday night.

The tournament hosts scored six times in a rampant first-half display, with Georgia Stanway’s 12th-minute penalty and a finish from Lauren Hemp three minutes later being followed by a brace apiece from Ellen White and Beth Mead.

That equalled the most amount of goals scored by one team in a Euros match, and England went on to set a new record for the most emphatic victory at a finals, surpassing their 6-0 win over Scotland in 2017, following an effort from substitute Alessia Russo and Mead completing her hat-trick.

With the remarkable win seeing them seal top spot in Group A, the Lionesses will be returning to Brighton a week on Wednesday to play the runners-up in Group B - which features Germany and Spain - in the last eight.

The demolition job was watched by a crowd of 28,847, from which cries of "football’s coming home" rang out at various stages as England’s unbeaten run under boss Sarina Wiegman extended to a 16th match with a 14th victory.

Their group fixtures conclude with Friday’s meeting at St Mary’s with now-eliminated Northern Ireland, who had lost 2-0 to Austria earlier on Monday.

Sarina Wiegman: England did not expect such an easy run of it

22:46 , Jonathan Gorrie

England head coach Sarina Wiegman admitted she did not expect her side to be so dominant as they beat Norway 8-0 to set a new European Championship record.

The Lionesses qualified for the quarter-finals in style and set a new record win for a men’s or women’s Euros at the Amex Stadium in Brighton.

A contentious Georgia Stanway penalty, won by Ellen White, set England on their way to victory but there was no doubting the hosts’ dominance thereafter, as a Beth Mead hat-trick, White’s double and further goals by Lauren Hemp and Alessia Russo earned a famous win.

"It was a very special night, we didn’t expect to make such a big win as we did," Wiegman told the BBC.

Beth Mead: I don’t think I could have dreamed Norway hat-trick

22:27 , Jonathan Gorrie

England hat-trick hero Beth Mead says the 8-0 demolition of Norway was beyond her wildest dreams as the Lionesses booked their place in the knockouts with a record win.

Sarina Wiegman’s team smashed the previous record for a win at a men’s or women’s European Championship by two goals as a Norway side -- who were tipped by some as dark horses -- were blown away by the hosts at Brighton’s Amex Stadium.

Ellen White scored twice, while Georgia Stanway, Lauren Hemp and Alessia Russo also found the net, but Arsenal’s Mead was England star’s, following her winner in the opening game against Austria with a fine treble.

61:00 - Naturally, the tempo has dropped somewhat but England continue to look dangerous.

Three changes

21:18 , Jonathan Gorrie

Hard to know how England will approach this

21:10 , Jonathan Gorrie

50:00 - A nice problem to have of course, but do England waste energy from here?

A reminder

21:05 , Jonathan Gorrie

Another goal for White would see her equal Wayne Rooney’s all-time record.

We’re underway!

Another fast start from England.

Utterly ruthless from England going forward. Norway look all over the shop at the back, but the Lionesses have made them pay. Front-three has been superb.

Is it really coming home?

38:00 - The best of the lot!

Beth Mead dances her way through the Norway defence, twisting and turning to draw challenges in and finishes with ease!


Simon Collings at the Amex Stadium

20:38 , Jonathan Gorrie

The Norway team look absolutely shell-shocked. They’ve no clue what’s hit them. They need half-time, but it’s still 10 minutes away

GOAL! England 4-0 Norway | Beth Mead ‘34

20:36 , Jonathan Gorrie

34:00 - It’s FOUR!

Beth Mead heads in, with this time White the provider. Brilliant ball from the No.9.

England rampant

20:35 , Jonathan Gorrie

34:00 - Literally everytime England push forward, they look like scoring.

Pressure, what pressure?

Simon Collings at the Amex Stadium

20:33 , Jonathan Gorrie

This has been a blistering 30 minutes from England, played at pace and we are seeing how dangerous their attack can be. Wiegman wanted them to be ruthless - and she’s got her wish.

GOAL! England 3-0 Norway | Ellen White ‘28

20:30 , Jonathan Gorrie

28:00 - AND THERE WE GO!

White pounces on a defensive mistake, picking the ball up from just outside the box, shrugs off a defender and slots home calmly.


20:28 , Jonathan Gorrie

26:00 - When White scores, the Amex will erupt.

Stunning ball from Mead finds her at the back post, but she cannot quite direct it into the back of the net.

Injury worry

20:25 , Jonathan Gorrie

23:00 - Nasty looking injury for Daly.

After making a great challenge, she gets her boot stuck in the ground and falls awkwardly on her ankle.


Well then

20:22 , Jonathan Gorrie

19:00 - Let’s get our breath back.

Hemp’s goal came within 2 minutes of Stanway’s stunning penalty to put England on the brink of winning Group A.

Amazing to think not ten minutes ago the visitors were looking much the better side.


20:19 , Jonathan Gorrie

Hemp’s goal stands as England race into a two-goal lead.

20:18 , Jonathan Gorrie

Wiegman turned to the bench and gave a huge fist pump when that goal went in. England running riot here.

England are on fire...

20:15 , Jonathan Gorrie

Now that is a penalty. Stanway shanked a cross moments ago, but she made no mistake there. That should settle some nerves.

GOAL! England 1-0 Norway | Georgia Stanway ‘11

20:13 , Jonathan Gorrie

11:00 - Minutes after shanking a cross wide, Stanway steps up to score from 12 yards!

An absolute belter of a spot-kick!


20:12 , Jonathan Gorrie


White brought in the box...

A bit nervy

20:09 , Jonathan Gorrie

07:00 - Norway looking far more relaxed, England rushing into poor decisions.

The Lionesses know they can improve on that, having done so last week, but they do need to start settling down.

Hegerberg watch

20:07 , Jonathan Gorrie

04:00 - Seems somewhat dimissive to reduce a team of Norway’s quality to just one player, but the crowd are cheering as soon as Hegerberg is robbed of the ball.

That alone says so much...

Scrappy early on

20:04 , Jonathan Gorrie

02:00 - Fairly scrappy early on, with neither side being able to get a foot on the ball.

Stanway, however, is such a bundle of energy and her quick-fire breaks could be key on the counter.

Norway gets us underway

20:02 , Jonathan Gorrie

01:00 - Norway looking composed, much as Austria did during the opening exchanges last week.

England will likely have a LOT more to do defensively, but Lucy Bronze’s clearances sets the tone early.


20:01 , Jonathan Gorrie

And we’re away!

Three points were seal Group A for England.

Can they rise to the challenge?

The teams are in the tunnel!

19:56 , Jonathan Gorrie

Here we go!!

Another party atmosphere meets the Lionesses on their way out.

Fran Kirby’s warning

19:49 , Jonathan Gorrie

Fran Kirby has warned England’s rivals that she is still nowhere near her best and says the Lionesses are aiming to peak in the final of the European Championship after starting the tournament with a 1-0 win over Austria last night.

Kirby was England’s standout player at a sold-out Old Trafford, making the only goal for Beth Mead, but the hosts failed to capitalise on their early advantage and faced late pressure from an unfancied Austrian side.

Kirby did not play for Chelsea from February after suffering from extreme fatigue and says she and the team will grow as the Euros progress.

Around 20 minutes to go until kick-off and still plenty of empty seats at the Amex. Judging by Twitter the issue is due to the train line from Brighton to here.

The pressure is on England

Currently sitting third in Group A, Austria’s win over Northern Ireland has ramped up on Wiegman’s side.

Jess Carter: England potential from a young age

19:12 , Jonathan Gorrie

England Euro 2022 star Jess Carter’s first coach has revealed he told her when she was just six that she would one day play for her country.

Dean Brandrick has tipped the Chelsea defender to be a star at Euro 2022 as England prepare to face Norway in Brighton on Monday night in their second match after starting the tournament with a 1-0 win against Austria.

Before hitting the big time, the 24-year-old played for Warwick Juniors in a mixed side before the club set up a girls’ team which scooped countless trophies and league titles with her at the heart of the team.

England vs Norway: Three factors to decide tonight’s Women’s Euro 2022 clash

18:32 , Jonathan Gorrie

England face Norway tonight in a key match-up in the race to win Group A.

Both teams began their Women’s Euro 2022 campaign with victories as the Lionesses edged Austria by a single goal.

There were fewer problems for Norway in downing Northern Ireland and England will have to be on top form to secure a victory which would all-but confirm their place in the next round.

Here are three key areas to look out for at Amex Stadium...


Wiegman not in the mood for mind games

18:24 , Jonathan Gorrie

England Women boss Sarina Wiegman has dismissed the claims of Norway boss Martin Sjogren that all the pressure is on the Lionesses ahead of Monday’s Euro 2022 clash.

The two sides both won their opening games of the tournament and go into the match at the Amex in Brighton looking to take control of Group A and qualify for the quarter-finals.

Ahead of the match, Sjogren argued all the pressure is on England as they are the host nation.

Latest odds

Betfair: England vs Norway specials

England to win and Ellen White to score anytime: 9/5

England to win and Beth Mead to score anytime: 2/1

Lauren Hemp to have 2 or more shots on target: 4/1

England to win 2-0 and Beth Mead to score anytime: 18/1

Prediction: 1-1 draw

18:14 , Jonathan Gorrie

Norway’s strong start to the tournament was in contrast with a nervy outing by England and the Lionesses may have to settle for a point unless they can be at their best on the south coast.

A 1-1 draw.
