Full Time. That's it! England lose 3-1 to Norway and can no longer qualify despite having a game remaining. Let the inquest begin...
England still pushing and a clever free-kick slips Henderson through in the right channel but he can only win a corner when his cross is blocked.
Rose battles with Pedersen and gets the better of him to ensure it is only a goal-kick. Still competing England but they need two goals.
Chance! England break fast and look certain to score when they have a four-on-two situation but Zaha sees his shot blocked.
Chalobah fails to keep the ball in play. It's a real battle for the England players not to let their heads drop now.
Powerful run from Pedersen down the right channel seemed to wrongfoot Dawson and his fierce cut-back was brilliantly turned home by Eikrem. It's turning into a beating here.
Rose does well to beat his man and drill in a cross to the near post. Wickham thinks he's won a corner but goal kick given.
Chance! Bright start by England after the break as they win a corner and then Henderson shoots well only for Nyland to save.
Half Time. The whistle goes for the end of the first period. England facing elimination as they are 2-0 down at the break.
Disallowed goal! Henderson lofts the free-kick in and Caulker is there at the far post but he is just offside.
Henderson showing his frustration now, just as Smith did with Caulker for the goal. England facing elimination with a game to spare unless they can come up with something soon.
Nielsen lifted the ball over the head of Caulker and Berget raced onto it in the left channel. He allowed for a couple of bounces before connecting sweetly with his left foot to beat Butland for pace.
Chance! Long ball up to Henderson who heads down for Zaha but the striker hits the bouncing ball over the bar.
Chance! Pedersen plays a lovely one-two to get in behind Caulker in the left channel but then appears to panic and slices wide from close range when facing a narrow angle.
Zaha gets the ball to his feet inside the box and spreads the ball well to Smith in the right channel. The full-back plays what looks like a good cut-back but it somehow eludes everyone.
Lowe pushes forward and spreads the play for Rose but the cross is blocked. Then Redmond tries a through-ball to Zaha but gets too much on it.
England continuing to dominate possession but with Norway able to hold onto a lead now there is desperation creeping in already.
Good skill from Redmond and then a superb through-ball by Rose almost finds Zaha but Norway are defending well.
Butland fails to get a strong punch on the first corner and when the cross finally comes in from the second England fail to clear. The ball falls for Semb Berge and he turns nicely in one motion to find the bottom corner. It all seemed to happen in slow motion and after a bright opening England are behind.
Chance! Henderson with the cross from the free-kick but Rose heads over despite getting good contact.
Rose cuts in from the left this time and has a shot from distance with his right foot but that's well over.
Chance! Space opens up for Elabdellaoui when Dawson tries to nip in but gets eased out. The right-back is powering forward in the right channel but drills his shot over the bar.
Quality crossfield pass by Henderson to find Rose. A few signs of class by England but no real chances.
More good play. Smith crosses from the right and it comes out to Rose on the opposite flank. Redmond then plays a nice one-two to win a corner.
Early action for Smith in the right-back spot but he's under pressure and struggles to clear. It comes to nothing though as Norway get an early shot in that flies wide.
We've had the anthems and the handshakes. Kick-off imminent in front of a decent crowd in Petah Tikva.
Norway will be looking for an improvement of their own after needing a stoppage-time goal from substitute Harmeet Singh to get a point against the hosts in their opening game. Singh comes into the starting line-up for this one.
More attacking full-backs for England could be an advantage as Smith and Rose are both keen to get forward.
In other changes, Nathaniel Chalobah is preferred to Jonjo Shelvey in midfield, while Adam Smith is in ahead of Nathaniel Clyne at right-back.

Our friends at Sky Bet have the odds for this one. They make England the 4/5 favourites with Norway as the 15/4 underdogs. The draw is available at 13/5.
Wilfried Zaha, Tom Ince and Danny Rose are back to bolster the England line-up so it's a stronger looking side for this crucial clash.
Norway U21: Nyland; Elabdellaoui, Semb Berge, Rogne, Strandberg; Eikrem, Johansen, Singh; Nielsen, Pedersen, Berget.
But England are boosted by the return of several players... The teams are in and will be up shortly.
A defeat would see Stuart Pearce's team eliminated after just two games after their opening match defeat to Italy.
