After successive defeats - by France and Norway, respectively - ended their hopes of progression, victory over the reigning world and European champions will be no more than a consolation.
  • Barry Johnston, Reporter, Tampere Stadium: Ominously for Iceland, though, one name that has remained on the Germany team sheet is that of Birgit Prinz, who is yet to open her UEFA WOMEN'S EURO 2009™ goal account.
  • Barry Johnston, Reporter, Tampere Stadium: Germany coach Silvia Neid has made wholesale changes to the starting lineup for her side's final Group B outing. In total, six starters from the 5-1 victory over France have been rested as the holders opt to experiment.
  • Welcome to the Tampere Stadium for the concluding Group B encounter between Germany, who have already clinched first place and a quarter-final in Lahti on Friday, and eliminated Iceland.
