GOAL! Norway 4-1 Australia. NORWAY ARE THROUGH. Engen sweeps her penalty past a rigid Williams. They were by far the most impressive side, and perhap the extra woman on the pitch for some of the match left them with more mental strength at the death.

- OffEllie CarpenterAustralia (W)
- OnAmy HarrisonAustralia (W)
Harrison gets on in time for penalties, should they be needed.
Graham fires in a low shot at goal that Williams does well to get behind. That is probably the fina chance of the game... but Yallop has a similar effort at the other end.
90 seconds of normal time to go, and then we are closing in on penalties.
- OffEmily Van EgmondAustralia (W)
- OnKarly RoestbakkenAustralia (W)
Roestbakken is on.
We are heading towards what would be the eighth penalty shooutout in the history of the tournament. Graham runs onto a through-ball and squeezes a deflected shot at goal that goes out for a corner. She takes from the left, and it's beaten away.
Graham goes close again, and Williams tips away a low shot driven at goal from the edge of the box. They have been the best players on the pitch so far today.
With the amount of time played by the sides now, it's getting a fair bit discombobulated. Australia are doing well to keep their shape.

Boe Risa was also booked.
- End of E.T 1st Half
That's half time, again.
Boe Risa crashes a fierce drive against the crossbar, in extra time's added time. This game has become excellent.
Utland is warned, on a yellow already. She went in late on the wing, I'm not sure on who, and she is extraordinarily lucky to stay on the pitch.
Mjelde fires in a free kick that Williams beats away from danger.
- Red cardAlanna KennedyAustralia (W)
RED CARD! Utland is beyond the last defender, and is dragged to the ground by Kennedy. It will be reviewed....But this time the decision is upheld.

Boe Risa shoots from distance, forcing Williams to leap up into the air to tip her effort over.
Kerr chases a long ball over the top, she's readying a shot at goal, but Thorisdottir races back to edge her over as she sticks out a leg. Good defending.
- E.T 1st Half
We go again again.
Extra time will follow soon. Graham almost won it at the death, but there was no separating the two teas.
Norway almost win it at the death. Graham aims a shot at the top corner, it beats Williams, and strikes the post before bouncing along the goal line and out.
We're into added time, on the cusp of another two periods.
There's a VAR check after Thorisdottir flew into Yallop possibly... but nothing is given with the defender apparently getting the ball first.
Television Jamaica is evidently excited.
- GoalElise Kellond-KnightAustralia (W)
GOAL! Norway 1-1 Australia. Kellond-Knight scores - A corner comes from the right from Kellond-Knight to the near post and Gielnik swipes a foot at it. She misses - just - and it curls past the 'keeper and in at the near post.
We're appraoching the final 10 minutes of the game and Australia don't seem any closer to a way through.

Gielnik comes on to replace Raso.

Maanum on for Saevik.
Kerr feeds Raso in the box, and she can't hold off the defenders well enough to get a shot away on target.
Kennedy digs out a shot from a way out, and sends an effort well over the bar. There's a little over 20 minutes of normal time left.
"Big Cat" is enjoying himself.

An accurate early pass from Carpenter finds Yallop down the right, and she fires in a rising shot just over the bar.
GOAL! NO! Kerr thinks she has put Australia ahead. She darts into a gap behind the defence and slips the ball past Hjelmseth, but the flag is up.
- Yellow cardKristine MindeNorway (W)
More possession for Australia as Norway sit back.
Norway are under pressure so far in this half, but Australia failing to find a way through.
Raso exchanges a one-two with Kerr into the box, and she slices a shot miles wide under pressure.
Williams is caught late by Graham, and Graham avoids what should be a booking.
- 2nd Half
We go again.
- End of 1st Half
That's half time. See you in 15 minutes.
There will be four minutes of added time.
NO PENALTY! The decision is rescinded, and the play continues. It's a fair enough decision, as it wasn't really clear on the replays.
The referee is called over to have a look...
PENALTY! Thorisdottir tries to cut out a cross from Kerr and it appears to hit her arm. It's going to VAR...
An impressive career.
This time Williams punches it into the air and Moe Wold wins another corner, this time on the left of the pitch.
Moe Wold sends a shot high and wide, but Williams tips it away anyway and concedes another corner - they win another from it.
Mjelde heads firmly down deep in the box and it's cleared easiy enough. Austraia attack down the other end but the move quickly breaks down. Graham Hansen runs half the pitch, makes room for a shot inside the box, and it's deflected just wide for a corner on the left.
Corner on the right for Norway as Saevik attacks down the wing.
- GoalIsabell HerlovsenNorway (W)
GOAL! Norway 1-0 Australia. Herlovsen scores - A well worked move from Norway. A through-ball behind the defence from Saevik cuts out the defence, and the striker curls the ball around Williams.
After an eventful opening few minutes, the game has settled down and there's not much quality on show right now.
Reiten sends in a decent, firm cross from the left, but it's just too high for Herlovsen.
Minde advances down the left and overruns it, and eventually Australia clear the lines and send it out for a throw in Norway's half.

Williams pulls off an important stop as Graham Hansen drills a low shot across goal, pushing the ball away.
Thorisdottir sends a long ball aimlessly out of play.

Saevik's cross is deflected in the box, and then hoofed away by Van Egmond.
Yallop drills in a cross from the right, low and to the near post, and Kerr fires in a low shot past the upright.
Here's an early bit of hardcore statistical analysis.
Australia play themselves out of trouble at the back well.
Foord fires out a ball to Raso on the right. he cuts inside, plays a quick one-two with Kerr at the near post, and scuffs a shot at the near post that Hjelmseth dives to claim.

Raso tries to slip in Foord behind the defence, but the defence intercepts.
Risa takes a shot from a distance, and it skids along the ground past the far post.
There's already a chance. Kerr runs onto a through-ball, cuts inside in the box, and rifles a shot low to the inside corner that strikes the side netting.

The match gets underway.
There's five minutes until kick off.
You can send your comments to me at @lxndrnthrtn, and I'll use the best ones here.
Caroline Graham Hansen was a possible injury concern for Norway, but she is fit to start up front.
Another player with experience in Norway is Chloe Logarzo, who played for Avaldsnes in 2017. She said: "I know that they are a tough bunch. It is a Viking culture, so it is going to be a hard game. Aussies like a good scrap and so do they."
There's a little overlap between the two sides, with seven Australian players having played for Norwegian club sides. Tameka Yallop has played for the last two seasons for Kleep.
Norway and Australia take each other on in the first knockout round, meaning the winner will be through to the quarter-final stages.
And here is the Norway side.
Here is the Australia line-up.
