International Friendly | England vs Iceland


England’s Qualification Form

England play Iceland at Wembley in their final friendly before travelling to Germany for the European Championships. As tournament favourites, England should be hopeful that they can breeze past Iceland. This team want to show the rest of Europe they deserve to be the bookies top choice at lifting an international trophy for the first time since 1966.

That’s why I’m going England to win both halves at 2.00.

Iceland’s European Journey

Iceland’s qualifying campaign had a mix of highs and lows. A highlight was an empathetic 7-0 win over Lichtenstein away from home. They failed to qualify automatically with 10 points from 10 games. Placing them in the play offs. However, their hopes of going to the Euros ended in misery after a loss to Ukraine, a late Mykhalio Mudryk goal broke Icelandic hearts. They will be looking to haunt England again they sent the Three Lions home in the 2016 Euros.

Three Lion’s Results

England have shown great consistency in the qualifying stage with 22 goals scored in eight games, conceding only four in the process. Their 3-0 win over Bosnia and Herzegovina on Monday night will give them confidence going into their final game before the tournament. Three second-half goals from Cole Palmer, Trent Alexander-Arnold and Harry Kane made it a comfortable win. Kane is set to start against Iceland after only featuring as a substitute on Monday, we expect him to build on his 63 goals in 90 games for his country.

Gareth Southgate needs to cut at least seven players when he confirms his final squad to take to Germany. Southgate has already cut James Maddison from the squad. With just one game left to prove they deserve to be on that plane, the players know they have to impress or face Maddison’s fate.
