Wednesday was a shocking day at Euro 2013, where Germany lost its first game in the competition in 59 games, a stretch that lasted 17 years. Norway handed the title holders the 1-0 defeat via an Ingvild Isaksen goal in first half stoppage time.
The victory shockingly sends Norway (2-0-1, 7 pts.) through as Group B winners, pitting them against Group C’s runner-up — which could be England, Russia or Spain, depending on Thursday’s results — in the quarterfinals.
Iceland also guaranteed passage into the next round with a 1-0 win over the Netherlands. Iceland will play either France or Sweden in the quarterfinals.
Thursday’s Group C matches are the final group games, which will set the quarterfinal matchups. England take on France (already group winner) and Spain play Russia knowing a win or draw guarantees La Roja a second place finish, and even a loss could send them through if England also loses.
