On day five of the Women’s World Cup Lia Walti and Noelle Maritz’s Switzerland faced off against Frida Maanum’s Norway in Hamilton.
Switzerland and Norway played out a 0-0 draw with the Norwegians controversially dropping Caroline Graham Hansen and Ingrid Engen from the starting line-up and Ada Hegerberg had to drop out of the line-up moments before kickoff due to illness. The three Gunners found time to chat and pose for a photo after the game.

The result leaves Norway’s fate out of their own hands going into their final game against Philippines, while a win for Switzerland will see them top the group. It looks like a second consecutive group stage exit for a very talented Norway team.
In the other games of the day Philippines blew the group open by beating New Zealand on home turf, while Colombia defeated Korea 2-0. Tomorrow sees another all Arsenal clash at 1pm UK as Cloe Lacasse and Sabrina D’Angelo’s Canada face Katie McCabe’s Ireland.
