    Joy for Iceland, who seal a place in the quarter-finals of UEFA 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 was unruffled as Netherlands piled on the pressure in the second period.
