England boss Sarina Wiegman will be delighted that her side managed to secure three points without gaining any injuries.
But Lionesses reporter Lynsey Hooper believes that Wiegman will switch up the formation and promote skipper Leah Williamson to a new role.
Hooper said: “I suspect Sarina Wiegman will return to a back four, knowing the attacking threat Norway posses, so we could see the return of Alex Greenwood alongside Millie Bright at centre-back.
“This in turn would push captain Leah Williamson into a midfield role.”
Hooper also mentioned that Wiegman may opt to drop Fran Kirby to the bench due to her fatigue issues.
Elsewhere, Norway also have a full strength side and Even Pellerud expected to field the same team who pummelled Northern Ireland on Match day one.
- England to win 13/20
- Draw 29/10
- Norway 4/1
