Valur Icelandic Champion in Football

By Iceland Review

The Valur women’s football team from Reykjavík became the Icelandic champion last weekend after an 8-0 victory over Stjarnan from Gardabaer. Valur has only lost two games in the Icelandic league for the past three years and their average score is 5.6 goals per game.

Dóra María Lárusdóttir scored the first goal of the game only after four minutes and she scored three games in total, same as Margrét Lára Vidarsdóttir, a reputed goal queen both for Valur and the Icelandic national team.

“Of course I’m thrilled about the results and our victory in the league,” Valur’s coach Elísabet Gunnarsdóttir told Morgunbladid. “But I have to admit that we did not play especially well against Stjarnan. The team is obviously tired.”

The Icelandic championship title which Valur earned last weekend is the third in three years and the eighth in the history of Valur’s women’s football.
