Toni Duggan scores as England draw 1-1 with Norway in La Manga.
Brent Hills’ England Women’s U23 side drew 1-1 with Norway in the opening game of this season’s Four Nation Tournament in La Manga.
Norway took the lead in the first half but Toni Duggan equalised just moments into the second period.
As this is a friendly tournament, it was decided beforehand that penalties would decide any drawn match and as the score was 1-1 after 90 minutes, the Three Lions eventually triumphed 5-3 on spot kicks.
Their next match is against USA on Sunday.
