Pressure vs. euphoria
When it comes to the encounter between England and Iceland at the eighth finals everybody expects a victory of Rooney & co. However we should not underestimate them because they already have trip some favourites. Kick-off on the 27th of June is at 9 p.m..
Current performance of England
The team of Trainer Roy Hodgson is something like a surprise bag in this EURO. At the first match against Russia they have led the match for one hour but then they have been punished with a drawn, against Wales they haven’t been the better team but in the end they have won with a score of 2:1. Against Slovakia they had a lot of chances to score goals and also dominate the match but have lost in the end. It’s always surprising how a match against England will end. For the match against Slovakia Roy Hodgson has made some modifications for example Leicester-Striker Jamie Vardy has played from the beginning. The Kane replacement has fulfilled his job perfectly and had some chances to score a goal. Maybe the trainer will replace Kane also at the match against Iceland. The defence as well as the offensive play is very strong. A fact that could be especially important against Iceland. When there are problems then maybe at the defence which has shown the slip-ups from Keeper Joe Hart.
Current performance of Iceland
Together with Hungary they have turned the group F upside down. In the end they have been second of the group behind Hungary. Responsible for the second position was the drawn against Portugal (1:1) and Hungary (1:1) and off course the last minute victory against Austria. However the team of Lars Lagerbäck was in all three matches the team with the weaker performance they only had the advantage of a penalty kick against Hungary. Against Austria they had the luck that Austria played forward at the last minutes. The big strength of Iceland is the defence. Especially the central defence is very strong. At a forward play Iceland counts on fast counter attacks but this will be the wrong tactic against England. One disadvantage of Iceland is also the missing tournament experience. However Iceland is carried by a big wave of euphoria. The qualification already has been a big success for them so every further success would be just an encore. So the team can play without any pressure against England.
Betting tip for this match
England definitely has some player potential that can cause trouble for Iceland and also will cause trouble. Most of the players of the Hodgson eleven are active at the premiere league and therefore they are in a good shape. As already mentioned we should not underestimate Iceland. In the end the higher individual quality will be successful. Our tip: tip 1.
