By Staff Reporter

Leo Brown scored one goal and set up three more as Northern Ireland's Under-16s battled out a thrilling 4-4 draw with Norway.

The RBAI pupil sparked a magnificent comeback when his strike cut Norway's lead in half just before the break after they had gone 2-0 up.

Brown then made a great run before supplying a pass for Paul O'Neill to equalise early in the second half.

Northern Ireland then took the lead when Brown's cross was headed in by Harry Robinson.

Things got even better for Northern Ireland when Brown set up substitute Alex McIlmail for Northern Ireland's fourth goal.

Norway pulled one back soon after to set up an exciting climax, which they topped off with a late equaliser.

The teams will meet again tomorrow at Solitude (2pm).
