Germany Women Secure Victory Against Iceland in European Championship Qualifier

The DFB women are on course for the European Championships. Their first home game of the year is against Iceland. t-online offers the game in the live ticker.

In the home game against Iceland, the German footballers are aiming for their next mandatory victory in the European Championship qualification. However, interim national coach Horst Hrubesch warned before the game: “We have already played it, we also know that it is not a sure thing. You have to invest everything you have.” With a win, the DFB team could take the lead from Iceland in Group A4.

Germany 3:1 Iceland

69. – The Icelanders are now swimming tremendously – Birkisdottir plays a far too risky pass in her own penalty area to Johannsdottir, who is put under direct pressure by the DFB players. The guests are lucky that this doesn’t create a chance.

67. – And the next chance for Brand: On the right side of the box she moves inwards and finishes in the middle. But her shot goes well over the goal.

66. – The Icelanders are also changing: Eiriksdottir and Zomers are going down, Gudrun Arnardottir and Sandra Maria Jessen are now playing for them.

65. – UHrubesch changes: Felicitas Rauch comes into the game for Linder, Sjöke Nüsken is replaced by Janina Minge.

62. – The next goal is in the air! What a chance for Brand: Linder crosses from the left, the Wolfsburg woman takes the ball with her head – and hits the post!

59. – Very strong: Oberdorf with a great lateral shift to Bühl, who moves into the Icelandic penalty area on the left almost unchallenged, but her shot is deflected into a corner. This then brings in nothing.

50. – The German team immediately took control of the game again, the Icelanders barely got out of their own half and were immediately attacked and put under pressure by the DFB players. However, this did not result in any further scoring opportunities.

46. – It continues in Aachen.

Half-time conclusion: After a lightning start and a subsequent weak phase, the DFB women deservedly lead against the Icelanders, who failed to improve after the interim equalizer. Horst Hrubesch’s team, on the other hand, became stronger and stronger after the brief shock and created top-class opportunities, which they also took advantage of. But it still didn’t seem really stable, so the team still has to work after the break.

45.+3 With the half-time whistle, the German team upped the ante. Lena Oberdorf increased to 3:1. After a corner from Bühl, the Icelanders couldn’t get the ball cleared and Schüller tried it first with his heel in the hustle and bustle. Then the ball bounces from Vigosdottir directly to the VfL Wolfsburg player, who slots in easily from the six-yard box.

45. – There are three minutes of added time.

39. – The renewed lead inspires the DFB women: Lena Oberdorf finds Brand with a great pass, who then wants to cross into the middle in the penalty area. But Birkisdottir is there.

34. The 2:1. In this phase, out of nowhere! Klara Bühl walks a few meters to the left, looks up and crosses – directly to Schüller, who scores her second goal with her head. This is a bit of a wild game right now.

31. Very bitter: Jonsdottir tries again after a long break from treatment, but immediately sits on the grass again. It can’t go any further. Bryndis Arna Nielsdottir comes into the game for them.
