Live Updates for Iceland Women -v- Republic of Ireland Women

Updates by Brendan Graham

90' + 6'

FULL TIME!

The game has ended between Iceland Women and Republic of Ireland Women.

90' + 2'

Katie McCabe weaves her way around two players before lifting a cross into the path of O'Sullivan but the Cork native can't get the crucial touch to get an effort away on goal

90'

Six minutes to be added at the end of this game. Jamie Finn tries to find Ziu with a crossfield cross to the edge of the box but puts too much on it

83'

GOAL!

Karolina Lea Vilhjalmsdottir (Iceland Women) scores. The Iceland scorer edged her way past Louise Quinn who came out to meet her on the edge of the box. Vilhjalmsdotir wound up before driving into the far corner and past Brosnan to double the home sides lead

80'

Substitution

Roma McLaughlin (in) - Eabha O'Mahony (out) (Republic of Ireland Women).

76'

Huge chance for Iceland! Thorvaldsdottir almost gets a crucial touch on the ball close to goal but Brosnan does just enough to put her off

71'

Substitution

Hafrun Rakel Halldorsdottir (in) - Gunnhildur Yrsa Jonsdottir (out) (Iceland Women).

64'

Ireland are building again and doing slightly better but sitting extremely deep. Will be wary of Iceland in their search for a second

62'

Substitution

Jessica Ziu (in) - Amber Barrett (out) (Republic of Ireland Women).

58'

Katie McCabe plays a great ball over the top in search of Heather Payne. Payne manages to get herself on to it but is flagged offside. A good idea

54'

GOAL!

Berglind Bjorg Thorvaldsdottir (Iceland Women) scores.

Iceland are ahead! Jonsdottier floats in a cross right in between Quinn and O'Riordan. Thorvaldsdottir does brilliantly well to get into the space and nick the ball past Brosnan and give Iceland the lead.

Ireland are gone very nervous and they need to settle quickly

53'

Vilhjalmsdottir plays an early cross from the left but Brosnan comes out to collect early

47'

Vilhjalmsdottir plays in Jonsdottier with Louise Quinn caught for pace. A fresh air shot ensues before she flicks the ball up for the incoming Porvaldsdottir but O'Riordan does brilliantly well to close her down and get her body right in front of the ball

46'

SECOND HALF

The second half between Iceland Women and Republic of Ireland Women has started.

45'

HALF TIME

It is half-time between Iceland Women and Republic of Ireland Women.

39'

Megan Connolly with a powerful effort from distance but is denied by a full stretch save from Runarsdottir who palms the ball out for a corner. McCabe's ball to the front post passes everyone by and Iceland collect

35'

Chances at both ends! O'Sullivans headed effort from a corner is helped along by O'Riordan but Runarsdottir watches it all the way and saves with arms out

Moments later Iceland break with real danger, Porvaldsdottir finds herself one on one with Brosnan but the Ireland shot stopper gets down low and pulls off a crucial save for Ireland. Caldwell is sharp and scoops away the rebounded save to clear the danger again.

A warning sign at how dangerous Iceland can be

32'

Jonsdottir almost see's herself sneaking in at the back post but Caldwell's imposing pressure puts her off and allows Brosnan to collect with ease

30'

Good chance for Ireland on the break. O'Sullivan threads a through ball into the path of Barrett but the strikers effort edges just past the post. Closer for Ireland and they are so much smarter with the ball this evening

29'

Yellow Card

Karolina Lea Vilhjalmsdottir (Iceland Women) is booked.

28'

Louise Quinn with a crucial interception and clearance from Jonsdottir's drilled cross. Jonsdottir took the ball past Eabha O'Mahony quite easily before drilling across goal but Quinn was there to cover and avert the danger

23'

Jamie Finn does very well to keep Vilhjalmsdottir away from the ball before watching it out for a goal kick. A really strong start from Ireland with twenty five minutes gone

19'

Louise Quinn stands tall in contesting a high cross right into the box with Bryjnjarsdottir. A heavy clash between the pair but Quinn is ok to continue after a few minutes to compose herself once more

17'

Harsh on Megan Connolly with an apparent foul on Jonsdottir but the free kick is poor and Brosnan collects

15'

Diane Caldwell attempts to pump a ball over the top for Amber Barrett but puts too much on it and the ball rolls away and out for an Iceland throw

11'

Katie McCabe involved in lots of Ireland's attacking play so far weaving inside and out of Halldorsdottir but the Icelandic defender recovers well to nick the ball of the Arsenal star's toe

7'

Amber Barrett working tirelessly as always on her own up front. She does brilliantly well to hassle Johannsdottier and win the ball back inside the box but her intended pass for McCabe goes astray

4'

An impressive start from Ireland. Heather Payne's whipped ball into the box is met by Megan Connolly with an effort on the edge of the box but her shot is well wide

2'

A very direct start from Ireland in the opening two minutes here

1'
