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.

Stefan Johansen scored with a first-minute volley as Norway, which didn’t qualify for Euro 2016, dominated its opponent. Sverrir Ingi Ingason leveled for Iceland in the 36th minute, before Pal Andre Helland scored Norway’s second with a free kick in the 41st.

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.
