They keep getting uglier, but Norway keeps getting wins. The Norwegians got out to an early 1-0 lead four minutes in when Josh Gyurek scored a nice header goal. Italy wasn't providing much opposition so it looked like Norway would roll to an easy win. However, about three minutes later Italy somehow managed a weird lofting goal from way out and tied it up 1-1. Norway seemed deflated and couldn't get any speed going. Halftime score was 1-1.
In the second half it was all Norway in terms of possession and chances, but Norway could not buy a goal. There were two scrambles on the goal line that didn't go in, a hit crossbar, a couple close shots, and a tap-in from four yards out that was somehow skyed over the net. With 10 minutes left in the game it was still 1-1 and Italy hadn't even generated a shot for the whole second half.
Then Norway created some midfield space and the ball came back to defender Colin Wirth who was about 30 yards out. Wirth took a touch and ripped a hard low shot that got through all of the defenders crowding the box. The ball hit the Italy keeper but the power behind it managed to propel the ball beyond the goal line. It took all of the Norway players yelling and the assistant referee on the sideline to signal before it was called a goal. Italy did not think it went in.
The goal deflated the Italians. They started to push, but three minutes later one of their defenders let a ball go through and Stefan Husdal was in on the keeper. There was a collision, the ball squirted out to a Norway midfield player who put a shot on net. Stefan was up by this time (the keeper stayed down) and he defelected the ball into the open net. Whistle never went and it was a legitimate goal. Norway passed around the ball for the rest of the game.
