England 1-0 Norway – International Friendly – 3rd September 2014


A late Wayne Rooney penalty gave England a win they hardly deserved against Norway on Wednesday night. The Three Lions, playing in a half-empty Wembley, toiled against an organised Norway side with Joe Hart probably the Three Lion’s best performer on the night.

The second-half introduction of Fabian Delph and Danny Welbeck gave Roy Hodgson’s side a little more impetus and the goal eventually came after Raheem Sterling had been fouled in the box. The Norwegians had a few great chances to score themselves, with Hart superbly keeping out Josh King amongst others.

Not a great performance by any means but a clean sheet, a win and vital experience for some of the younger Three Lions – it could’ve been worse!

    Agreed, it certainly could’ve been worse, but wouldn’t it just be nice to be able to say we romped to victory without having faced San Marino, or Germany thirteen years ago!!

    Are we absolutely sure that Roy Hodgson isn’t Scottish, and laughing his balls off in secret? We should be told
