Missed the broadcast of the first half of the NOS European Football Championship, Belgium v Iceland? Today Belgium women also kick off the European Women’s Football Championship in England. They play their first game against Iceland at the Manchester City Academy Stadium. The fight can be watched live via NPO 1, Canvas and Gids.tv from 6pm onwards.
Proudly bearing the nickname Red Flames, the Flemish soccer women are a little behind the Orange Lions in terms of development. So far, they have only qualified for one final: the 2017 European Women’s Football Championship in the Netherlands. At the time, the Belgians finished third in their group behind the Netherlands and Denmark. 0-2 win against Norway.
Group with the Netherlands
Iceland have already qualified for the European Championship three times and reached the quarter-finals at the 2013 tournament in Sweden. They are currently trying to qualify for the 2023 Women’s World Cup in Australia and New Zealand. KEY DETAILS: Iceland are drawn to the Netherlands and can still grab the lead from the Orange Lions in a less-than-stellar game.
