Icelandics Edge Closer To Toon Tie

Recommended Posts

ICELANDIC outfit IFK Keflavik edged closer to a dream date with Newcastle in the Intertoto Cup when they progressed from the first round at the expense of Northern Ireland's Dungannon Swifts following a goalless draw in Belfast.


Keflavik were 4-1 up from the first leg in their own stadium last week, and any hopes the Swifts had of turning the tie around were effectively ended 10 minutes before the break when midfielder Darren Murphy was sent off after an off-the-ball incident.


Neither side managed to break the deadlock in Belfast's Windsor Park, so it was the Icelandics who went through into the second round, where they will face Lillestrom of Norway.


The first leg of that tie will be next Saturday, July 1, with the return a week later. Newcastle await the winners the following weekend at St. James' Park, with the away game taking place the weekend after (July 22).
