In the 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup, the Group A team, Norway vs Philippines, was held at Eden Park in Auckland on Sunday. Predictions were stated about the two teams, with most favoring Norway as this is the Philippines’ first time in the FIFA Women’s World Cup, so they were labeled as underdogs.

Norway vs. the Philippines was scheduled on July 30, 3:00 PM Philippine time, for our nation to watch how the Philippine national team performs in their first-ever World Cup. The Philippines was able to advance after defeating New Zealand 1-0 marking their first-ever win in the FIFA Women’s World Cup. 

After struggling to get the flow in the first two games, Norway did not seem to have issues against the Philippines, already having a 3-0 lead by halftime and scoring another 3 goals by the end of the match. 

Sophie Roman Haug scored the first two goals for the Norwegians and got herself a hat trick late in the match. Norway’s strong team composition and refined play allowed them to overcome their slow start and advance to the knockout stages.
