Norway end Germany run
 Women's Football News 17 Jul 2013
Norway 1 (Thorsnes 45) Germany 0
On a day of surprises in the Euro 2013 Finals, Norway ended Germany's 59-match unbeaten run in the UEFA Women's Championships which had stretched back 17 years. 
The result means that Norway are the winners of Group B and they will play the Group C runners-up, possibly England, in the quarter finals whilst Germany will be up against Italy.
Norway's win is even more impressive when considering they made six changes to their starting line up, compared to two enforced ones by the Germans.
Germany dominated matters early on without really troubling the Norwegian defence and indeed it was Norway who had the two best chances early on. Emilie Haavi drilled a searing 25-yard free kick which was palmed away at full stretch by Nadine Angerer whilst Ada Hegerberg fired over.
Back came Germany with Celia Okoyino da Mbabi shooting just over after linking up well with Dzsenifer Marozsan and then the same player attempted to clip a shot over Ingrid Hjelmseth but the goalkeeper did well to hold.
Moments later the Germans almost took the lead in bizarre circumstances as Saskia Bartusiak pumped a long ball forward when winning a 50-50 challenge on the halfway line and bounced awkwardly over Hjelmseth who managed to touch the ball onto the bar. The following corner was met by Luisa Wensing whose header again looped onto the top of the bar.
As the game went into first half injury time, a Haavi free kick was floated into the area and headed away by Annike Krahn as far as Ingvild Isaksen who unleashed a firm shot which took a huge deflection off Elise Thorsnes and looped into the net with Angerer completely wrong footed.
The goal had come against the run of play but the second half was much more evenly contested with Germany now finding it difficult to break down the Norwegian defence.
Norway made a double substitution, bringing on experienced taliswoman Solveig Gulbrandsen along with Caroline Hansen and it was the exciting teenager who almost doubled their lead when cutting in from the left along the edge of the area before driving a shot which was turned over by Angerer.
Germany tried to salvage the game in the dying stages with da Mbabi heading wide and Marozsan's chipped pass releasing Nadine Kessler who lobbed her shot over Hjelmseth but it landed on the roof of the net.
Norway needed to survive a late Marozsan free kick as they held out for a result which is likely to make other teams still in the competition sit up and take notice. 
Norway: Ingrid Hjelmseth, Marita Lund, Ingvild Isaksen, Gry Tofte Ims (sub Solveig Gulbrandsen 58mins), Toril Akerhaugen, Maren Mjelde, Nora Holstad Berge, Emilie Haavi (sub Ingvild Stensland 72mins), Elise Thorsnes (sub Caroline Hansen 58mins), Ada Hegerberg, Cathrine Dekkerhus.

Germany: Nadine Angerer, Luisa Wensing, Saskia Bartusiak, Leonie Maier, Annike Krahn, Simone Laudehr (sub Melanie Behringer 66mins), Melanie Leupolz (sub Anja Mittag 66mins), Nadine Kessler, Lena Lotzen (sub Sara Dabritz 79mins), Dzsenifer Marozsan, Celia Okoyino da Mbabi.
