  • End of 2nd Half
90+6' 

That's it. Spain have it won. They controlled the ball but not the match, and they were a touch fortunate that Jarstein showed such a loss of control. They can be thankful for Ramos' nerves.

90+4' 

Jarstein is up for the corner. It's headed away, as is the next cross. Henriksen sends in yet another cross and now a clash of heads between Johnsen and Ramos gives Spain a free kick. That should be it.

90+3' 

Norway press for what would be a very funny equaliser, and Canales concedes a corner on the right.

90+1' 

Four minutes of time indicated.

90' 

Asensio is put behind the defence, just onside, and he tries to lift the ball over Jarstein, but it doesn't come back down quickly enough.

89'

87' 

Rodrigo holds the ball up in the box but is quickly tackled. Spain will be happy to keep the ball away from their goal for the rest of the match now.

86' 

Here is what is likely to be the winner tonight.

84' 

De Gea hoofs the ball long and now Spain are playing it short in midfield.

80' 

Spain are trying to kill the game now, but Asensio is picked out on the left of the box, and he drills in a low shot at the near post for Jarstein to stop well.

79' 

A little over 10 minutes of normal time for Norway to find an equaliser.

GOAL! Spain 2-1 Norway. Ramos scores - The Spanish captain dinks a penalty into the net to secure his side's lead.

70' 

PENALTY! Jarstein flies out to head off Morata, lunging into him with a sliding tackle. Totally pointless, with Morata coming at him from a tight angle.

67' 

Morata skews a header, for yet another miss. There haven't been any awful misses from him, but they are just consistent.

  • Iñigo Martínez

64' 

PENALTY! Norway take a corner from the left, Martinez drags down Johnsen to prevent his jump, and that's an obvious foul.

63' 

Long throw for Norway on the right. Navas boots the ball out for a corner under little pressure. The corner comes to Johnsen, but he heads well over.

62' 

There's a Mexican wave on the sidelines after the entertainment on the pitch died about 40 minutes ago.

60'

Ramos turns up at the back post for a cross and flashes a volley wide, when it seemed easier to score.

59' 

Asensio's cross reaches Rodrigo at the back post, and he clips a curling shot past the back post, helped wide by a deflection.

58' 

Here's a clearly gifted tactics expert chipping in.

Rodrigo slips in Morata just into the box, and from 10 yards out his shot at goal is defected past Nordtveidt and away from goal.

  • Tarik Elyounoussi
    Yellow cardTarik ElyounoussiNorwayElyounoussi is booked for a rough challenge on Ceballos, catching his heels with a lunge.
51' 

Elyounoussi is booked for a rough challenge on Ceballos, catching his heels with a lunge.

48' 

Alba crosses to the back post, Rodrigo uses his back to pass for Parejo, and the midfielder can't bring it back under control.

47' 

Navas fires in a cross just ahead of Morata, and the Spanish win a corner. Nothing comes from it.

  • 2nd Half
46' 

We get going again. Can Spain equal their 363 passes from the first half. And, more importantly, maybe they will score too.

  • End of 1st Half
45+2' 

That's half time. See you in 15 minutes.

45+1' 

We're into the only indicated minute of added time for the half.

45' 

De Gea picks out a cross from the right in what is perhaps the last attack of the half.

44' 

Alba is complaining that he got struck by Elyounoussi at a corner for Norway, and there's a hint of intent there. The ref doesn't take any action.

42' 

Spain come forward again...

40' 

Alba is played in on the left, and he rolls a pass into the box with three Spain players ready to shoot, but the linesman puts up his flag.

38'

Another wasted chance ends when Rodrigo slides in with a shot that is taken away from him for a corner, and then Martinez backheels an effort from a corner. Enrique is seeing red on the touchline, very close to going radge. What's Catalan for radge?

37' 

The ball is back with the Spanish defence, and Norway drop deep again.

33'

Morata forces a brilliant dive from Jarstein, who palms a shot away from the far post. A minute later, he loops another header just over the bar.

31'

Henriks drills in a cross, past De Gea into the six-yard box, and it thunders against Elyounoussi and away from the goal to engineer an impressive miss.

30' 

Elyounoussi takes on Parejo down the right and wins a corner. The cross that comes from it is cleared.

29' 

Norway play the ball out from the back now.

28' 

Rodrigo skips past two players, and lays the ball off into the path of the run he expected Morata to make, but instead it drifts away.

26' 

To answer the tweet below: De Gea doesn't have the reassuring presence of Chris Smalling when he's playing for Spain.

25' 

De Gea rushes to clear Parejo's back pass, which invited trouble given it was well off target.

21'

Morata sends a thumping header straight into the arms of the 'keeper.

20'

Rodrigo moves to the near post to reach Navas' cross, and he rolls an effort at goal with a flick of his leg, blocked for a corner.

18' 

Norway send a long through to the box, but King clambers all over Martinez and concedes a foul.

  • Rodrigo

15' 

Plenty of Real Madrid players in action today.

14' 

Ceballos is tripped in midfield and is able to take a short free kick, and Norway drop deep.

13' 

Alba has to slide in at the corner flag to prevent a corner as Henriksen closes in.

11' 

Spain continue to dominate with the ball, but Busquets has to slide in to prevent King getting around the back to chase a long ball.

9' 

Ramos is penalised for a shove in the box, and Busquets is punished for a foul, too.

8' 

Rodrigo drives in down the inside left and has a cross deflected for a corner on the left wing. Nothing from it.

6' 

Ramos boots a pass forward for Navas, but it's far too hard and runs out of play.

4' 

Spain still with the ball. Norway are sitting back as Navas attacks down the right. He drills in a cross that is headed out at the near post.

3' 

The ball is back with De Gea now, and he takes his sweet time to pick out a short pass.

2' 

Spain continue with the ball in defence as they wait for an opening.

  • 1st Half
1' 

On we go, then.

19:40 

I'm predicting a 5-0 win for Spain.

19:35

19:30 

The Norwegian players you might be most familiar with are Josh King of Bournemouth, and Martin Ødegaard of Real Madrid, though he's currently on loan at Vitesse.

19:25 

Jesus Navas starts at right-back for Spain, and it is more of the old, vaguely depressing Spanish side that we are used to than the flip-hot tedium-merchants that won the Euros and the World Cup.

19:15 

Sweden and Malta top the group with three points, and Romania and the Faroes are bottom with none, having played a game. Spain are likely the strongest side in the group but there's enough semi-comptenence in Group F to keep them sharp.

19:10 

And here is how Norway line up.
