Ireland beat Iceland, who are currently top of the table in League D, by 3 games to 1 in the 6th round.
Opponent in round 7 on the 26th will be Cyprus. Two rounds remain after that, in April and May, with Iceland sitting out the final one. (Due to the uneven number of countries, one had to take a bye each round.)
