Chelsea midfielder Guro Reiten was again on the scoresheet for Norway as they fell to a 3-1 defeat to Germany in Wiesbaden this afternoon.
The 26-year-old netted in Norway’s 2-0 victory over Belgium on Thursday and she was again on target for Martin Sjogren’s side at the BRITA-Arena this afternoon.
Reiten opened the scoring for Norway against Germany in Wiesbaden after just four minutes. She raced into the box to meet a Caroline Graham Hansen pass and she prodded the ball beyond club teammate Ann-Katrin Berger in the Germany goal.
Sadly for Reiten and her Norwegian teammates, they were unable to protect their lead and they would go on to concede three goals. Laura Freigang levelled matters in the eighth minute before Linda Dallmann soon added a second German goal. Paulina Krumbiegel netted Germany’s third in the second half as Martina Voss-Tecklenburg’s side rounded off another comprehensive victory following their 5-2 success against Australia on Saturday.
Reiten was one of four Barclays FA Women’s Super League players to start the match for Norway, Cecilie Fiskerstrand (Brighton & Hove Albion), Maria Thorisdottir (Manchester United) and Cecilie Kvamme (West Ham United) being the others. Reading’s Amalie Eikeland also came off the bench for Norway in the second half.
Chelsea keeper Berger lined up behind Arsenal defender Leonie Maier for the hosts, picking up her second senior cap in the process.
