Iceland coach Sigurdur Eyjólfsson had stated his squad were forged to make breakthroughs, and having claimed their maiden point at this level in the draw with Norway earlier in UEFA Women's EURO 2013, they defeated the Netherlands to venture into the quarter-finals.

Dagný Brynjarsdóttir's header on the half-hour mark at the Växjö Arena was enough to ensure progress as one of the two best third-placed teams in the competition. Though he will have to wait until the conclusion of Group C before knowing whether his team will play Sweden or France for a place in the last four, Eyjólfsson, who spent much of the game shielding his eyes from the glorious evening sunshine, can now look ahead to even brighter horizons. Condemned to bottom spot in Group B, the Netherlands, surprise semi-finalists four years ago, exit without a goal to their name.

    Joy for Iceland, who seal a place in the quarter-finals of Women's EURO 2013 thanks to a dogged victory in Vaxjo. Dagný Brynjarsdóttir's first-half strike was the difference between the sides but the real hero for Iceland was goalkeeper Gudbjörg Gunnarsdóttir, who pulled off a string of saves as Netherlands piled on the pressure in the second period.
