Silvia Neid’s Germany enjoyed the majority of the first half of the repeat of the 1995 final as Norway struggled to create any attacking chances.

Germany eventually went ahead as Player of the Match, Dzsenifer Marozsen’s long range effort was split by goalkeeper Ingrid Hjelmseth and Anja Mittag pounced to tap with ease.

Norway did create a half chance just before the break when forward Isabell Herlovsen controlled a long ball between two defenders, but her effort was parried to safety by Nadine Angerer.

Norwegian coach Even Pellerud decided to replace Gry Tofte Ims with the more experience midfielder Solveig Gulbrandsen as the teams took to the pitch for the restart.

The change completely transformed the Norwegian side as now they dominated the second half as much as the Germans had the first.

Now with added pressure towards the German net, Norway found an equaliser after a brilliantly placed free-kick curled over the German wall and into the top left of the net by dead-ball specialist Maren Mjelde.
