Both opening matches in the European Qualifying Group for the 7th FIFA Women's World Cup to be held in Canada in 2015, ended up in a draw.


Malta's women's team opened their commitments with a match against Albania, which ended in a 1-1 draw. 

 

After a goalless first half , the visitors took the lead against the run of play in the 76th minute, with the locals replying four minutes later directly from a corner taken by Dorianne Theuma.

 

In the second match of the tournament Luxembourg and Latvia shared the spoils in a goalless draw.
