Iceland led by their coach Lars Lagerback is a great example of defensive team. The team never had over 40% of possession in any of their three matches but avoided defeats so far and have gained five points in three matches, finishing second in the group behind Hungary. Iceland drew their matches against Portugal and Hungary, 1-1 and beaten Austria 2-1 after late decider scored by Arnor Traustason. Iceland always give away possession and look for scoring opportunities with counterattacks.
England and Iceland have played just one in 2006 when Britons thrashed Iceland 6-1. Despite the fact than Iceland are much better side now, they still lack class to advance for the quarterfinals of European Championship. England should stay determined through the match, value opportunities they create and advance for the next round.
Prediction for the match: England to win.
