Iceland Women 1 – 1 France Women

17 Aug 2022 | 08:02 | Football

French striker Melvin Mallard scored the fastest goal at the Women’s Euro 2022 as the Blues drew with Iceland, who became the first-ever team to score an innings despite remaining unbeaten.

Iceland, who had previously drawn 1-1 with Belgium and Italy, kept their quarter-final chances ahead of the final group game, but Belgium’s 1-0 win over Italy sealed second place in Group D with four points name.

It took striker Marard 43 seconds to shoot low from the edge of the box to put qualifying France ahead, making it the fastest goal of the competition so far this year.

But Iceland continued to go all out in the second half as Agla Maria Albertsdottir and captain Sara Bjork Gunnarsdottir came close to scoring.

Corinne Diacre’s France were one of the game’s favourites, with two goals ruled out by VAR at the end of the game before Iceland passed Dagny Boo in the 12th minute of stoppage time Linjas Dottier’s penalty earned a consolation goal.

Brynjarsdottir’s effort means France’s 16-match winning streak has come to an end, but their attention has turned to the prospect of a quarter-final clash with defending champions Netherlands.

What’s next?

France play their final quarter-final against the Netherlands at the New York Stadium in Rotherham on Friday; kick-off at 8pm.
