    The final whistle is blown.
    Barry Johnston, Reporter, Tampere Stadium: France showed their billing as championship dark horses is deserved after a terrific comeback earned the three points. Iceland's first final tournament match ends in disappointment with the conceding of two penalties, and missing one of their own, key to their downfall. Next up for Les Bleus are world and European champions Germany on Thursday, while Iceland must attempt to take something from their meeting with Norway to boost their hopes of progressing.

  • Barry Johnston, Reporter, Tampere Stadium: France have a familiar lineup with Candie Herbert and Élodie Thomis leading the line. They fell in the group stage four years ago, when also in the same pool as Germany and Norway.
  • Barry Johnston, Reporter, Tampere Stadium: In qualifying Iceland beat France 1-0 at home but Les Bleues got revenge 2-1 in the last group game to ensure they did not need to go through the play-offs. Iceland's line will be led by their scorer in the June 2007 victory, Margrét Lára Vidarşdóttir, whose 12 goals in qualifying was the best tally.
  • Barry Johnston, Reporter, Tampere Stadium: Welcome to the Tampere Stadium for the second of today's UEFA WOMEN'S EURO 2009™ Group B double-header; following on from Germany's 4-0 win against Norway it is Iceland versus France.
