Norway in their friendly beat england Women 2-1 in Bergen because a comeback was finished by Caroline Graham Hansen goal for those hosts.
Barcelona forward Hansen penalized England sloppiness collecting the ball from a Millie Bright pass that is misjudged, advancing into the box and firing past Carly Telford.
This came after a Frida Maanum header in the 53rd minute had cancelled out Georgia Stanway’s superb 10th-minute strike.
The winless streak for the side of Phil Neville because their 3-0 win against Norway in the quarter-finals of the summer’s World Cup in France stands in four matches.
England grabbed the lead to magnificent fashion when Nikita Parris touched Steph Houghton’s pass into Stanway, whose effort from 25 yards out went off the bar after Kristine Minde had led an early effort wide for Norway.
Since the hosts sought to make a reply, Maanum headed Karina Saevik and off-target subsequently fired after Lucy Bronze – playing with the Lionesses in midfield – lost ownership.
A low drive created by Guro Reiten followed closely and Amalie Eikeland made an air-kick because she attempted to meet a cut-back, before Stanway tried her luck again that the extending Toni Duggan could not prevent from moving wide.
Reiten went close with a curling effort, and following interceptions then twice thwarted before goal at the opposite end Jodie Taylor, Telford was called upon in first-half stoppage time to push away a goal-bound Saevik delivery.
The opening stages of the second half watched Stanway Telford turn an Eikeland photo and skew an attempt wide.
As Maanum, Norway attracted amount from the subsequent corner and delivered the ball.
Bronze almost put England back within moments, heading Parris’ cross wide. Taylor also missed by a header, between two Hansen shots being dealt with by Telford.
Bronze then saw one effort fly off-target and had another blocked by means of a team-mate, until Hansen made the maximum of Bright passing the ball straight to her, collecting it just inside England’s half, then taking it into the area, past the diving challenge of Houghton, and lashing a shot to the internet.
