Late flurry boosts Germany
 Women's Football News 25 Aug 2009
Three late strikes helped holders Germany to a 4-0 victory over Norway in their opening UEFA Women's Championship group match at the Tampere Stadium.
Germany started strongly and Inke Grings had a goal disallowed before they took the lead just after the half hour. Birgit Prinz was brought down in the area by Maren Mjelde and Linda Bresonik slotted home the resulting penalty.
Elise Thorsnes came within inches of equalising for Norway moments later but German pressure continued after the break and Ingrid Hjelmseth was forced to make a string of saves to keep her side in the game.
Norway missed a great opportunity for an equaliser in the final minute of normal time as Cecilie Pedersen was sent through on goal but shot straight at Nadine Angerer.
They were made to pay dearly for the miss as Germany immediately counter attacked and Anja Mittag slid the ball across goal for an unmarked Fatmire Bajramaj to score from close range. Moments later, Mittag added a third with a shot which took a wicked deflection off Camille Huse and a third injury time goal came following a scramble which ended with Bajramaj firing home from close range.
France meanwhile survived an early scare to run out 3-1 winners over Iceland to sit in second place in Group B.
Iceland got off to a great start after just six minutes when Holmfridur Magnusdottir headed in a pinpoint cross from Margret Lara Vidarsdottir.
However the lead lasted for just twelve minutes and France were given the chance to level when Sandrine Soubeyrand was fouled in the area. Camille Abily stepped up to score from the penalty spot.
Despite losing two players through injury, France took charge of matters and went in front for the first time early in the second half. Again it was from the penalty spot, Elodie Thomis was barged over in the box and this time it was Sonia Bompastor who found the net.
France sewed up the game midway through the half as Louisa Necib fired home a shot from the edge of the area. Iceland were awarded the third penalty of the match to give themselves hope of a comeback but the opportunity was passed up as Vidarsdottir's kick was saved by Sarah Bouhaddi.
