Incoming freshman goalkeeper Nora Neset Gjøen is among the Norway Women’s National Team’s 23-player roster for the 2013 European Championships. Play runs from July 10-28 in Sweden.

Norway is in Group B and opens play against Iceland on July 11. Norway also meets the Netherlands (July 14) and seven-time European champion Germany (July 17).

 

This is just the latest national team appearance for Gjøen, who has long been identified as one of the nation’s top goalkeeper prospects. She has competed with Norway’s Women’s U-15, U-16, U-17, U-19, U-20, U-23 and Senior national teams. She played the entirety of Norway’s four matches in 2012 FIFA Under-20 Women’s World Cup action in Japan. Gjøen was Norway’s starting goalkeeper in 2012 Women’s U-23 Four Nations Tournament in Spain which involved teams from England, U.S. and Sweden.

 

Gjøen enrolled at the University of Florida for the spring 2013 semester, playing with the team in the spring, and will rejoin the Gators for the fall season.
