Norway’s Katrine Jørgensen scored at both ends as England Women’s Under-19s drew their opening game of the year at St. George’s Park.

The Scandinavian youngster opened the scoring just after the half hour mark.

But she inadvertently put the ball into her own net just moments later to restore parity.
