The team also failed the ending streak of a group stage competition, taking only 2 points in 3 last matches and allowing Portugal and Albania to finish above. The team can’t win for over a half a year as the last victory was take over Serbia in June 2015 (2-0) and after that they played six games, losing and drawing 3 of each.
Iceland was impressive in this qualifiers, finishing above Turkey and the Netherland. 20 points got the team the second place in the group and the ticket to France for the summer. Iceland played great before the place in the final stage was secured but once it happened, they took only two points in last three group matches. 4 out of 5 following friendlies were lost and only one win was recorded (1-0 over Finland). So Iceland won 1, drew 2 and lost five of their last 8 matches.
The head-to-head record between the team consist of 6 matches and all of them won by Denmark with 16-1 goal difference. Both teams are failing to impress in recent matches but Iceland have much bigger potential so they would probably should avoid thrashing defeat on the road.
