Olivier Giroud, who has only played 101 minutes in the Premier League this season, scored the only goal of the game as France beat Iceland 1-0.

Giroud converted from 12 yards on 66 minutes after Antoine Griezmann had been felled in the box.

France and Turkey both have 18 points but the World champions are second on the table by virtue of their 2-0 loss away in Turkey.

France host Turkey on Monday at the Stade de France.

Third-placed Iceland have 12 points, Albania nine, and Andorra are second to last on three points after beating Moldova 1-0 for their first Euro qualifying points.
