They play their first game against Iceland at the Manchester City Academy Stadium. The duel can be seen live from 6 p.m. on NPO 1, Canvas and the livestream via Gids.tv.
The Flemish footballers, who proudly bear the nickname Red Flames, are slightly behind the Orange Lionesses in terms of development.

At the time, the Belgians finished third in their group, behind the Netherlands and Denmark. They won 0-2 against Norway.
Group with the Netherlands
Iceland have already qualified for a European Championship three times and reached the quarter-finals at the 2013 tournament in Sweden. They are also currently trying to qualify for the 2023 Women’s World Cup, which will be held in Australia and New Zealand. Salient detail: Iceland is assigned to the Netherlands and can, with one match less, still take the lead of the Orange Lionesses.
