Europe Women’s Championship: Iceland(w) vs France (w) – Prediction, Head-to-Head, lineups
Europe Women’s Championship: Iceland Women will be aiming to win against France which would guarantee them a place in the Women’s Euro 2022 quarter-finals on Monday.
On the other hand, with the top spot in Group D already secured, France headed to the New York Stadium in Rotherham without any pressure to win.
They began their Euro 2022 campaign with a 1-1 draw against Belgium before repeating the same scoreline with Italy.
Iceland also took the lead on matchday two owing to a third-minute strike from Karoline Lea Vilhjamsdottir, but unfortunately, a Valentina Bergamaschi equalizer in the second half of the match denied them the victory.
After playing five matches, Iceland knows that a victory against France is essential for them to secure their second appearance in a major tournament quarter-final.
However, a failure to clinch three points against France on Monday would open the door for either Italy or Belgium to get into the competition to hold second place.
While Iceland has much to play to think about and has pressure to win, France is aware that whatever the result is on Monday, they will be participating in the knockout rounds.
Grace Geyoro scored a hat-trick in France’s tournament opener, helping her team cruise to a comfortable 5-1 victory over Italy.
