follow live the match between Iceland and France

Published on :

Already assured of finishing at the top of Group D even before their last match on Monday against Iceland, France are approaching this match without pressure. But in the absence of their goal machine Marie-Antoinette Katoto, who left the Euro on injury, the Blue will still use this meeting as a rehearsal before the quarters.

Les Bleues are playing their last match of the group stage against Iceland on Monday, July 18, in Rotherham. The France team, assured of first place in Group D since its victory against Belgium, already has the lead in the quarter-finals of the Euro. Even if the result doesn’t matter, Corinne Deacon’s players will take advantage of this match to digest the withdrawal of their star striker Marie-Antoinette Katoto and learn to compose without her.

Iceland, for its part, plays a decisive match to access the rest of the competition. The Nordic country is currently second, one point behind the Belgians and Italians who will scrap at the same time in Manchester.

The players of Thorsteinn Halldorsson, whose best career at the Euro dates back to 2013 and a qualification in the quarters, can hope to do as well, despite a draw conceded against Italy (1-1) on July 14 after leading for almost an hour. For that, it will be necessary to beat in Rotherham Les Bleues or to draw and hope for the same result in the other meeting. A defeat Coupled with a 0-0 between Belgium and Italy would also be enough.
