Iceland took the lead through Fanndis Fridriksdottir's composed low finish in the early Group C game on Saturday, but Lara Dickenmann levelled before Chelsea's Ramona Bachmann headed the winner.

Switzerland keeper Gaelle Thalmann had stitches on the pitch after an accidental clash of heads with Iceland's Gunnhildur Yrsa Jonsdottir.

Play was delayed nine minutes while Thalmann received treatment, the 31-year-old finishing the game with a head bandage.

Switzerland are on three points, but Iceland remain without a point after two games.
