Sarina Wiegman admitted she was left in disbelief at half time during England’s thumping victory over Norway on Monday evening after watching her side net six goals in the opening 45 minutes.

England blew Norway away at the Amex in their second Euro 2022 group fixture, recording an 8-0 victory over a side dubbed dark horses by many ahead of the tournament.

A Georgia Stanway penalty, braces from Beth Mead and Ellen White and a Lauren Hemp goal had seen England into a 6-0 lead after just 41 minutes in an extraordinary half of football, before substitute Alessia Russo got on the scoresheet and Mead completed her hat-trick after the break.

“To be honest I thought ‘what’s going on?'” Wiegman replied when asked what was going through her head at the break. “You go through the match, you have your plan, you talk to players and you expect a very competitive match of course.

“Norway has a very good squad, their front line is really good. But we just kept them away from our goal and that was really nice to see. To be honest I thought: ‘what’s happening?'”
