43′ Under two minutes to go for the halftime whistle. What can Norway and France do to break the deadlock? The players are getting impatient as are the French loyalists in the stands.

Four clean sheets in eight qualifying matches for Ingrid Hjelmseth. Move aside, Rahul Dravid. We have another Wall in town. (Kidding. Dravid for PM).

Did you know? : France’s Le Sommer has scored 11 goals in her last 11 international appearances, including one goal in France’s 4-0 opening game victory over Korea Republic

Diani is the kind of footballer I want to be right now, but the kind I DO NOT have the leg-hand-eye coordination for. Beautiful footwork from France. It’s taken them some time to loosen up but the girls are getting there. Diani has concentration written all over her face. The crowds are ooh-ing and aah-ing with every attempt and miss.

8′ Set pieces galore from France, but Norway has bucked up. We’re seeing some more possession for the visitors as the seconds go by.

4′ Good pressure early on by France. It’s keeping the ball well and is pushing forward in search of an early goal. Norway is having to soak up the pressure at the moment.

Norway is trying hard to keep one player off its own and everyone else’s mind. p’).each(function() { if(!isAdded){ var re = new RegExp(“((^” +x+”|”+ x + “)[,. ()] *)”,”i”); if($(this).html().match(re) !=null){ $(this).html($(this).html().replace( re, ‘$1’)); isAdded=true; } } }); }); });
