Iceland’s Road to Euro 2025 Kicks Off With Match Against Poland

The Icelandic women’s national football team will face Poland at 4.45 PM today in the 2025 European Championship qualifiers. The team has faced a busy schedule over the past few months, according to team captain Glódís Perla Viggósdóttir.

A place in the 2025 Euro Finals at stake

The Icelandic women’s national football team has faced a busy schedule in recent months, with upcoming matches against Poland and Germany in the 2025 European Championship qualifiers up ahead. Today, the team will face Poland at Kópavogsvöllur Stadium at 4.45 PM before squaring off against Germany on Tuesday.

The upcoming games mark the start of the 2025 Euro qualifying tournament. Iceland will compete in League A Group 4. The teams that secure the two top spots in the qualifiers will automatically advance to the finals, which will be held in Switzerland during the summer of 2025. The remaining seven spots will be decided by two rounds of play-offs held between October to December of this year.

An unusual number of matches

As noted by Mbl.is, the upcoming matches against Poland and Germany will be the team’s ninth and tenth games since September of last year; Iceland played eight matches in the Nations League from September 22 to February 27.

“This is unusual, an unusually large number of competitions and an unusually large number of successive important matches,” team captain Glódís Perla Viggósdóttir stated at a press conference at the Football Association of Iceland’s headquarters (KSÍ) in Laugardalur yesterday. Iceland played two matches against Serbia in February, where a spot in the A division of the Nations League was at stake. Iceland won a narrow 3:2 victory in the duel.

“It’s unusual to come to Iceland in February to play important international matches. We are always working on being better as a team and achieving a better rhythm … all matches are important now, and it’s challenging for us to achieve results, on top of getting ourselves organised. We are on our way to the European Championship qualifiers and it means incredibly much to us. We are all hungry to do well and achieve our goals,” Glódís observed.
