Iceland Beats Turkey 2-1 in Euro Qualifier

The Iceland men’s national football team beat Turkey 2-1 in a Euro qualifying match at Reykjavík’s Laugardalsvöllur stadium last night. Centre back Ragnar Sigurðsson scored both of the team’s goals.

Iceland started the game strong, scoring their first goal only 21 minutes in. The second goal came only ten minutes later, giving Iceland a 2-0 lead. Turkish midfielder Dorukhan Toköz did not let that score stand for long, scoring for his team at 40 minutes into the game for a final result of 2-1 for Iceland’s team.

France currently holds first place in Group H, Turkey second place, and Iceland third, followed by Albania, Moldova, and Andorra. Only the top two teams from each group will qualify for the UEFA Euro final tournament.
