- England 1-1 Norway (Daly 33; Maanum 80)
The Lionesses signed off on a successful year, ending 2022 unbeaten with a 1-1 draw against 10-player Norway. Rachel Daly’s first-half goal was cancelled out by Frida Maanum late on as the final international break came to a close.
It had been 127 days since these two last met on that memorable summer’s evening in Brighton. That day, Sarina Wiegman’s side subjected Norway to an 8-0 drubbing on their way to winning the European Championship. This was a much closer affair as Norway, now under the management of Hege Riise, presented more solidity and defensive nous.
