Halden, Norway. Spain won their opening match of their qualifying group, although they made hard work at first of beating a physical Iceland side who took the lead midway through the first half through Fridgeirssonn following a corner. Real Madrid Castilla's Adrián González (son of coach Michel) equalised just three minutes after the restart after his Madrid team mate Bueno set him up, but it was not until twenty minutes from the end that another of the Castilla youngsters Mata picked up a pass from Valencia's Aarón to beat Jonasson. Mata appeared to have wrapped things up from the penalty spot after Aarón was brought down, but although Gislason and Halldorsson were both sent off, Vidarsson converted a second penalty in injury time to set up a nail biting finish.
