Free kick stunner earns Norway point
 Women's Football News 11 Jun 2015
Germany 1 (Mittag 6) Norway 1 (Mjelde 61)
A stunning free kick by Maren Mjelde earned Norway a share of the spoils against Germany in an absorbing clash in Ottawa. 
Germany had dominated the first half in almost its entirety but found the net only once and and improved Norwegian side battled back after the break.
Silvia Neid's side started the match in confident mood and were ahead after six minutes. Dzsenifer Marozsan drove at the Norwegian defence and her low shot was not gathered by Ingrid Hjelmseth and Anja Mittag nipped in to clip home the rebound.
Germany continued to control matters but were unable to further press home their advantage. Marozsan and Mittag were in excellent form with some eye catching flicks, including one outrageous turn just outside the area from Marozsan which took her past Isabell Herlovsen before she was crowded out by the Norway defence.
The best opportunity for Germany came from a superb Leonie Maier cross which Alexandra Popp headed inches wide. Popp again threatened with a header from a Lena Goessling corner but Norway managed to hold out under the pressure.
Indeed, they could have equalised just before half time when a long ball forward by Marita Skammelsrud Lund was chased down by Herlovsen, a stumbling Maier was unable to head the ball clear and Herlovsen fired in a shot which was parried away superbly by Nadine Angerer.
Norway brought out the influential Solveig Gulbrandsen as a half time substitute and looked a different side straight away, the presence of their star midfielder visibly giving them a lift.
Marozsan lifted a free kick over the bar and Popp curled a shot wide but the momentum was now with Norway with Ada Hegerberg and Herlovsen impressing up front. Their big chance was to come just after the hour mark when a great pass from Kristine Minde played in Herlovsen who was brought down right on the edge of the area by Saskia Bartusiak.
Mjelde, who plays her football in Germany with Potsdam, duly curled a delightful shot over the wall and in off the underside of the bar, giving Angerer no chance, for the equaliser.
Germany almost replied instantly with Maier whipping in another excellent cross, this time with her left foot, and Celia Sasic's glancing header was kept out by a good save from Hjelmseth, with Popp unable to force home the rebound.
Norway continued to look stronger as the game came to a close but the closest they came to a winner was from a breakaway and Hegerberg carried the ball into the area but without support and finding the angle too tight, her shot was straight at Angerer. 
Germany: Nadine Angerer, Leonie Maier, Tabea Kemme, Lena Goessling, Annike Krahn, Saskia Bartusiak, Simone Laudehr (sub Lena Lotzen 66mins), Alexandra Popp (sub Sara Dabritz 70mins), Celia Sasic, Dzsenifer Marozsan, Anja Mittag (sub Pauline Bremer 80mins).

Norway: Ingrid Hjelmseth, Maren Mjelde, Marita Skammelsrud Lund, Gry Tofte Ims (sub Solveig Gulbrandsen 45mins), Maria Thorisdottir, Ingrid Moe Wold, Ingrid Schjelderup, Lene Mykjaland, Isabell Herlovsen (sub Emilie Haavi 90mins), Ada Hegerberg, Kristine Minde (sub Elise Thorsnes 60mins).

Player of the match: Dzsenifer Marozsan.
