Sandra Jessen gives Iceland 1-0 win in Euro Qualifier.
England slipped to a 1-0 defeat to Iceland in their opening match of the Second Qualifying Round of the UEFA European Women's U17 Championship.
Sandra Jessen scored the winner in the 14th minute, but Lois Fidler's young side were always in the game thereafter.
They will now hope to bounce back against host nation Belgium on Sunday.
Their final qualifier is against Switzerland next Wednesday, and only the top-placed nation in the group will make it through to the Finals.
