  1. Thanks for joining me and I hope you enjoyed the game. Stay tuned to Sky Sports for all the post-match reaction.

  2. Norway 0 England 1. Roy Hodgson's reign starts with a win. An early effort from Young proves to be enough for the Three Lions. Plenty of room for improvement, but a win is a win.

  3. 90+4

    Final moments see England on the ball, but doing little with it. Carroll shows a good touch. Johnson tries his luck from 25 yards, but fires straight at Jartsein.

  4. 90+3

    Kelly nods out of play. Norway decide against a long throw. Jenssen hangs the ball into the box, but Green is able to come and claim unchallenged.

  5. 90+2

    Kelly able to see a long ball out of play. England fans doing their best to make their mark. Shame the players haven't offered much in the second 45.

  6. 90+1

    Tettey replaced by Jenssen.

  7. Four minutes of stoppage-time to be played.

  8. 90

    All about closing this out now and picking up the win. Not the best of performances, but far from England's strongest side and areas to work on.

  9. 89

    England trying to end on a positive note, but Lescott slips as he tries to send the ball forward. Sums up the performance in the second half.

  10. 88

    Another change by England as Kelly replaces Jones.

  11. 87

    Green punches Riise's delivery away from goal. He made decent contact. Long throw this time from Risse. Hangeland gets a touch, but loops the ball towards Green.

  12. 86

    Lescott clears, but only as far as Grindheim. England with plenty of bodies behind the ball. Norway unable to make room for a shot. Elyounoussi with an ambitious effort that cannons behind off Lescott.

  13. 85

    Another change for England sees Johnson replace Downing. Like for like swap down the left flank.

  14. 84

    Berisha replaces Henriksen. Two youngsters who have a big part to play in Norway's future.

  15. 83

    Jones hacks over a cross left-footed. It is never beating Hangeland and he nods clear with ease. Surprised that Hodgson has experimented with two strikers at some point. What has he got to lose?

  16. 82

    Poor effort from Walcott at the end of a much better period of play from the visitors trickles into the arms of Jartsein. England at least seeing more of the ball now.

  17. 81

    Better work defensively from Downing as he tracks back with Huseklepp and wins a goal kick. Good hold up play from Carroll has England moving forward.

  18. 80

    Walcott collects on the edge of his own box. England can't get out. Oxlade-Chamberlain tries to take them back up to halfway, but is soon outnumbered.

  19. 79

    Milner with a cross from the right that Carroll can challenge for. It has too much air on it, though, and Jartsein is able to pluck the ball out of the air.

  20. 78

    Riise's corner finds a way through to Henriksen at the far post. He sends it back to Riise, who then sees his second cros cleared. England far from convincing.
