Several interlands took place on Tuesday evening, before Ajax could focus on preparing for its away match against Heracles Almelo. Kolbeinn Sigthórsson was the match winner for Iceland in its match against Cyprus. He scored the only goal. Nicolai Boilesen and Christian Eriksen, winning a Scandinavian derby against Norway 2-0, ensured that tension increased in their group, which includes Portugal. By defeating Finland 0-2, The Netherlands – according to various statistics – already qualifies for the European Cup 2012. According to the numbers, the Dutch team is at least the second best team, assuring itself of a spot in the final rounds.
