England Under-23 went down to their third successive defeat in their International Tournament at the University of Warwick after they were beaten 3-1 by Norway in their final game.
After 3-0 and 1-0 defeats at the hands of the USA and Sweden in their previous two games, Brent Hills' side set out to end the tournament on a winning note but, despite a lot of endeavour, never really looked like getting the better of their Scandinavian opponents.
In the end, the Norwegians' superior finishing proved to be a major difference with Natasha Dowie providing the main threat at the other end. The Everton striker was unlucky not to score in the second half as she broke into the area but her shot was fingertipped past the post.
However Dowie was to score a consolation for England as she bundled the ball home after Steph Houghton had met a Claire Rafferty corner with a powerful header.
The England Under-23s are next in action on 30 September when they take on Germany in a friendly at Holmes Park, Leicester.
