    The Norwegian women's football team has become the first female national team to receive the same pay deal as their male counterparts. The team is now in the Netherlands to prepare for their World Cup qualifier.

    Meanwhile, the women's football team of Denmark could be expelled from World Cup qualifying matches after calling off Friday's game with Sweden due to a dispute over pay and conditions.
