England Women completed the year unbeaten with a 1-1 draw after ten-player Norway equalised in the friendly played in Murcia, Spain.

Emilie Haavi forced Ellie Roebuck to concede an early corner and Guro Reiten fired wide from a clear opportunity.

England took a 33rd-minute lead, when Chloe Kelly’s cross was headed home by Rachel Daly.

With 18 minute left Anja Sonstevold received a second caution, both for fouls on Nikita Parris.

But when Roebuck missed an attempted clearance, Frida Maanum slotted into an empty net.
