Iceland’s Women One Win from World Cup

Tickets for the Icelandic women’s national football team match against Germany are nearly sold out, RÚV reports. The match takes place this Saturday at Laugardalsvöllur in Reykjavík. A victory would send the women’s team to the FIFA Women’s World Cup in France next year.

It would be the first ever World Cup tournament for Iceland’s women’s team, which has never before qualified. The team, currently ranked 19th in the world, won their first qualifying match against the German team. Hopes will undoubtedly be high on the pitch this Saturday.

If the match could set another record if it sells out, as the team has never sold out a match at the Reykjavík stadium before. Tickets can be bought here.
