Since a comeback was completed by Caroline Graham Hansen goal for those hosts, Norway in their friendly beat england Women 2-1 in Bergen.
Barcelona forward Hansen punished England sloppiness advancing into the box, collecting the ball from a Millie Bright pass and firing past Carly Telford.
This came after a Frida Maanum header at the 53rd minute had cancelled out Georgia Stanway attack.
The winless streak for the side of Phil Neville since their 3-0 win against Norway in the quarter-finals of the summer World Cup in France stands at four games.
England grabbed the lead when Nikita Parris touched Steph Houghton’s pass into Stanway, whose first-time effort from about 25 yards out went off the bar shortly after Kristine Minde had led an early attempt wide for Norway.
As the hosts sought to make a reply, Maanum headed Karina Saevik and off-target subsequently fired after Lucy Bronze – that the right-back again playing in midfield with the Lionesses – lost ownership.
A low drive created by Guro Reiten followed until her luck tried using a hit that the stretching Toni Duggan could not prevent from going wide as she attempted to meet a cut-back closely and an air-kick was made by Amalie Eikeland.
Reiten went close with a curling campaign, and Telford was called upon at first-half stoppage time to push away a goal-bound Saevik delivery, afterwards interceptions subsequently thwarted in front of goal at the opposite end Jodie Taylor.
The half’s opening stages saw Stanway skew an effort broad and Telford turn an Eikeland photo .
As Maanum connected ahead of Rachel Daly, Norway attracted degree from the resulting corner and delivered the ball past Telford.
Bronze put England back ahead heading Parris’ cross broad. Taylor also missed involving two Hansen shots, with a header.
Bronze then found one attempt fly off-target and had another blocked by a team-mate, until Hansen made the maximum of Bright passing the ball straight to her, collecting it just within England’s half, shooting it into the region, past the diving challenge of Houghton, and lashing a shot into the internet.
