Valur Wins Iceland Cup in Women’s Football

Reykjavík club Valur beat Stjarnan from Gardabaer 1-0 in the Iceland Cup final yesterday. The game’s only goal was an own goal scored by Kristrún Kristjánsdóttir of Stjarnan early in the game.

“We had many good shots at scoring more beautiful goals than that which determined the outcome of the game but it didn’t work out. Still, we have the cup so I don’t care what kind of a goal it was,” Freyr Alexandersson, Valur’s coach, told Fréttabladid.

Valur began the game forcefully with Katrín Jónsdóttir aiming for the goal with a header early on. She missed it, though, and later had to leave the field due to injury.

Stjarnan got its best chance of scoring in the first half when Anna Björk Kristjánsdóttir, who was in a good position strategically, could have made a header after a corner kick.

Alexandersson said he will continue to win titles with his team. “We will just continue working according to our plans and we never get tired of winning titles,” he said. The Icelandic league is coming up.
