Norway drew 1-1 with Ireland in a
friendly thanks to a second half strike by defender Tore
Reginiussen on Wednesday.

On a rain-soaked evening, Reginiussen found himself unmarked
and fired the ball into an unguarded goal in the 61st minute,
following a misjudgment by Dean Kiley on a free kick.

Ireland skipper Robbie Keane had given Ireland the lead,
scoring his 34th international goal one minute before halftime.

The recently signed Liverpool striker, put through on goal
by winger Damien Duff, turned inside his marker and fired a
left-footed shot in at the near post.

The Irish dominated the first half but a heavy downpour at
halftime came to the aid of the Norwegians, who clearly adapted
better to the conditions in the second half.
