"Norwegian midfielder Maren Mjelde curled home a beautiful second half free kick to earn her side a deserved 1-1 draw with front-runners Germany in a women's World Cup Group B game on Thursday.

The goal was Mittag's fourth of the tournament and follows the hat-trick she scored in the 10-0 thrashing of Ivory Coast in the opening game on Sunday.

"Solveig Gulbrandsen gjorde ekte hattrick i første omgang da Norges kvinnelandslag i fotball avsluttet Algarve Cup med 5-2-seier over Danmark i kampen om 5.-plass. 34-åringen har enda en gang angret en beslutning om å legge opp og er tilbake på landslaget. Onsdag viste hun hvor viktig hun kan bli for Norge i sommerens VM-sluttspill i Canada. Det var veldig gøy å gjøre hattrick, det er ikke så ofte jeg gjør det. Den skriver jeg opp på CV-en, sa Gulbrandsen til fotball.no." - rbnett

March 6, 2015 - Emilie Haavi scores in 1-0 win over Iceland
"Fredag kveld møtte Norge Island til kamp i Algarve Cup. Norge stilte med en nesten helt ny 11-er fra forrige kamp mot USA. Og det fungerte bra for Norge. En kommunikasjonsfeil i det islandske forsvaret var alt som skulle til før Emilie Haavi var på plass og gav Norge ledelsen allerede etter åtte minutter. Norge fortsatte å være det førende laget gjennom hele kampoen, og slapp til få muligheter i mot. Det holdt til slutt til norsk seier over Island." - NFF

Norge var nær ved å doble ledelsen like etter, men stillingen sto seg helt til fire minutter før pause da Irlands Fiona O'Sullivan utliknet til 1-1 med en kontant avslutning fra syv meter.... Norge åpnet andreomgang som de åpnet den første og scoret etter to minutter. Igjen var Ada Stolsmo Hegerberg målscorer. Denne gang var hun sikker da hun ble spilt alene med den irske keeperen.... Ti minutter før full tid fastsatte Gry Tofte Ims resultatet til 3-1 da hun fikk kjempetreff fra 17 meter og limte ballen opp i krysset." - NFF TV
