Although Iceland have never been a footballing giant, in recent years they have been showing tremendous progress on the foundations of the talented under-21 squad that qualified for the youth European Championship held in Denmark in 2011. In order to make Euro 2016, Iceland sunk the Netherlands twice in their qualifactions group, cleary demonstrating that no-one should underestimated them. Furhermore, Iceland really impressed with a hard-fought 1-1 draw against Portugal on Tuesday.
Probably both teams will be buoyant and confident going into Saturday’s game to be held in the brandnew Stade Vélodrome in Marseille:
