Top save from Hourihan with the sun in her eyes as well. Ireland need to win and that means two goals though.

Ah such a good chance for Ireland there after a great ball into the box before the keeper punched clear. Duggan then retrieved fantastically but the ball goes to the back post and Kiernan can't control it.

Leanne Kiernan in a foot race for the ball and Norway forced to clear for a corner. 

56'

Cross into the box and the Irish keeper does great and gets finger tips to clear the ball from the Norway attacker.

Shot on goal for Norway but the keeper is down to save

51'

Leanne Kiernan is SO fast.

There has been a few moments of lack of comms between keeper and defence for Ireland

45' + 1'

Half Time

It is half-time between Norway Women and Republic of Ireland Women.

The corner is taken but straight away Ireland win another

44'

Another chance with Kiernan who shoots and the shot is blocked and Ireland win a corner

43'

Duggan gets free on the left and crosses but no one is in the box. The ball comes back into Connolly and her shot goes over the bar.

McCabe and Kiernan combine and break up the left but the ball is put out by Norway for an Irish throw

40'

Yellow Card

Lisa-Marie Utland is booked for Norway Women.

40'

Danger here. Ball worked back to the edge of the box and the shot beats the keeper and Louise Quinn clears off the line! 

38'

There has bene a few times now where the ball has bounced on the surface and gone a queer distance. 



35'

Connolly gets the ball in the Norweign box and hits the ground. The ref deems it a slip and no foul. 

33'

Denise O'Sullivan breaks from midfield and luanches a ball forward to Leanne Kiernan but the two covering Norweign defenders are there to see it safely away

32'

Ireland have some rare possession in the Norway final third but the ball is lost and Norway counter swiftly. 

26'
Tough on O'Riordan as she is a striker who has had to play in defence.

24'

PENALTY SCORED!

Caroline Graham Hansen scores for Norway Women from the penalty spot. Hourihan guesses correctly but can't keep it out.

23'

Yellow Card

Claire O'Riordan is booked for Republic of Ireland Women.

23'

Penalty for Norway and it looks like O'Riordan has given it away.

20'
Norway are dominating possession with Ireland feeling a bit like Athlone must feek apart from the fact they don't conceded six goals every week also.

17'

Hanson with one of the best chances so far as she smashes one but Hourihan palms it behind for a corner. That corner is then headed onto the bar as Hourihan once again doesn't seem to command her area great.

16'
Once again there is a moment of indecision from the Irish defence as the ball bobbles around amongst the norway players but thankfully O'Gorman hoofs it clear eventually.

13'
Play stopped as Duggan takes a bang to the head but she looks like she will be ok.

12'
Another moment of worry in the Irish defence. Hourihan goes for the catch after a cross but she drops it twice but thankfully the referee blows the whistle for a free out. Dodgy moment.



8'
Norway have had three corners after just eight minutes which will not please Colin Bell but thankfully the back four have stood strong so far.

5'
Aine O'Gorman is playing in her 100 game for her country and what a player she has been.

4'

Oh dear me. Not the greatest moment for Hourihan as her kcik isn't good and it causes the ball to come back over the top which causes indecision from O'Riordan and Norway win a corner, which does come to nothing. Not good though.

3'
The game is being played on Astro. This upsets me. Apparently it will suit Norway better if you're to believe some commentators.

1'

GAME ON!

The game between Norway Women and Republic of Ireland Women has kicked off.
