Icelandic Football Women Have a Shot for the Top

The Icelandic national team in women’s football still has a shot to top their qualifying group in the preliminary round for the 2011 FIFA Women’s World Cup in Germany with a narrow 1-0 victory over Northern Ireland in Belfast yesterday.

Iceland cannot lose a single point in its remaining games in order to beat France in their fight for the top seat when the teams meet on August 21 next year in the Laugardalsvöllur stadium in Reykjavík, Morgunbladid reports.

Iceland plays Serbia and Croatia in their respective home countries in March and Northern Ireland and Croatia again in Reykjavík in June.

France beat Estonia easily 12-0 at the Le Havre stadium last night and has a full house of nine points after three games. Iceland also has nine points, but after four games.
