Northern Ireland's wait for a first Euro 2021 qualifying win goes on after they were beaten 6-0 by Norway in Stavanger.

Lisa-Marie Utland hit an early double for the hosts before Guro Reiten, Ingrid Engen and Caroline Graham Hansen, with two, completed the rout.

Kenny Shiels' side have won just one point from their three qualifying games in Group C.

Northern Ireland host second-placed Wales in Belfast on Tuesday.

After losing 6-0 to Norway at Seaview in August, Shiels' side came into Friday evening's clash as clear underdogs.

Utland fired Norway into a third-minute lead before adding her second with a header on 12 minutes.

Chloe McCarron came close for Northern Ireland when her fierce right-footed drive from distance flew just wide of the right-hand post.

Having held off the home side for the remainder of the first half, NI were hit by a quickfire double soon after the restart as Reiten and Engen helped put clear daylight between the sides.

Hansen, who netted a hat-trick in the Seaview clash, added a fifth after 69 minutes before capping another clinical display by the World Cup quarter-finalists with the sixth in stoppage-time.
