Victories in their first two games saw France clinch Group D at Euro 2022, but the other three teams in the section have the chance to join them in the last eight of the final round of pool matches.
Iceland enjoy a one-point advantage over Belgium and Italy but face the toughest task as they take on Les Bleues in Rotherham. The clash between the other two at the Manchester City Academy Stadium could therefore turn out to be a winner-takes-all affair.
While France’s progress was serene, they suffered a blow in their 2-1 win over Belgium when striker Marie-Antoinette Katato’s tournament ended with a cruciate ligament injury.
Grace Geyero led the way with a hat-trick in their 5-0 win over the Italians in their opener, but Katato was also on target and considering she netted twice against the Netherlands and the Brazil at the start of the year, his presence will definitely be missed.
Ouleymata Sarr is close to starting in the lead but is hardly prolific, although France should have enough power to win comfortably against a side that have drawn 1-1 in their two games.
2019 World Cup runners-up Netherlands and USA are the only sides to have gotten the better of Iceland in their last 16 matches, but there are fears they may not have scored more than once in just two of their last eight matches.
With Sarr keen to replace Katato, France look a good bet to win by at least two goals.
Italy will probably consider themselves lucky to be in contention for a place in the round of 16, especially after a 5-1 loss to the French in their opening game.
All five goals they conceded came in the first half and they conceded in the third minute before battling to draw Iceland.
Belgium have little to lose and could imagine their chances.
Enthusiasm is tempered by the fact that last month’s 4-1 win over Northern Ireland was the only success of their last 11 against a side that made it to these finals, but they should be positive soon. the start, so sustain more than a first half. goals could provide some value.
