What can we expect from the Iceland vs England game?
The UEFA Nations League Group 2 match between Iceland and England will kick off at 5 PM BST. The two nations have only had three meetings, resulting in one win each and a draw. Most notably, Iceland’s 2-1 victory at UEFA Euro 2016 resulted in England’s elimination from the competition. Despite this, England are the heavy favorites heading into the game. Iceland are not helped by the fact that they’ll be missing key players including Everton’s Gylfi Sigurdsson and Burnley’s Johann Berg Gudmundsson.
