England Under-19s shared a thrilling game with Norway at St George's Park on Friday morning, drawing 4-4 in the second of two games this week.
Mo Marley's side drew 1-1 on Wednesday after a two-day training camp at the national football centre, but this game was certainly a little more free-flowing in the goalscoring stakes. England had to show real character too, as they had to battle back from being two goals behind on three occasions.
They first found themselves two goals down at half time thanks to a third-minute strike from Camilla Ose and a follow up in the 22nd minute from Amalie Vevle Eikeland.
Half time substitute Jess Carter then pulled a goal back for England in the 54th minute, only for Norway to restore their two-goal advantage in the 69th minute through Synne Sofie Kinden Jensen.
An own goal from Norway's Karin Muya helped to reduce the arrears in the 71st minute to make it 3-2 but five minutes later Jensen notched her second of the afternoon to make it 4-2 with what the visitors must have thought was a killer goal.
If that was the case, they were mistaken as another replacement, Coral Haines, got an instant goal back in the 77th minute before the pressure was really applied in England's search for an equaliser.
It arrived in the third minute of added time, as Katie Zelem levelled things up to make it 4-4 at full time and complete a remarkable match.
England Under-19: Kirsty Levell (sub Alex Brooks 61mins), Leah Williamson, Hannah George (sub Lauren Haynes 45mins), Fran Steele, Ellie Stewart, Gabrielle George, Sophie Stamp (sub Jess Carter 45mins), Katie Zelem, Karin Muya, Jenna Legg (sub Shauna Cossens 45mins), Keira Walsh (sub Coral Haines 73mins). Subs not used: Molly Bartrip, Claudia Walker, Jemma Purfield, Sophie Haywood, Ashlee Brown, Caitlin Leach.
