OSLO, Norway (AP) - Iceland slumped to a 3-2 defeat to Norway in a friendly on Wednesday as the islanders prepared for their first major tournament at the European Championship.

Alexander Sorloth made it 3-1 in the 67th and Gylfi Sigurdsson converted a penalty for Iceland in the 81st minute.

Iceland opens its campaign against Portugal on June 14, and also faces Austria and Hungary in Group F.
