EURO 2016: England vs Iceland

England vs Iceland Betting Tip and Predictions. In the last match of the 1/8 finals on EURO 2016, England take on Iceland at Stade de Nice, in Nice. Read below betting preview, useful info and betting predictions for the match between England vs Iceland.


England finished the group phase on EURO 2016 at the second position and they will face against Iceland in the 1/8 finals. The Three Lions have managed to win only one game in Group B, against Wales 2-1, while the matches against Russia and Slovakia were finished without winner. They weren’t impressive so far, but the most important thing for them is that they reached the 1/8 finals and on paper they have very easy job to do in order to reach the 1/4 finals, but Iceland showed decent quality on this tournament and English side won’t have easy job at all. If they want to go through Roy Hodgson‘s side need to their best in order to eliminate the biggest surprise on EURO so far. “Tomorrow’s result will be significant for me, but most of all for the team and the country. We want to stay in the tournament, we’re good enough, but we must get results and that starts tomorrow.” – said Roy Hodgson.

Iceland finished at the second position in Group F and they made a fantastic result on this competition. This is the first big tournament for them and they wanted to show that they deserve to be in France. They didn’t lose any game so far, beating Austria 2-1 and took one point against Portugal 1-1 and Hungary 1-1. In the historic 1/8 finals they will face England and they believe that can make another good result. Iceland are playing very strong in defence, while their attack is very solid. Against England, I believe, that they will play defensively and try to do something from counter-attacks. The main goal is to stay unbeaten and try to do something on penalties.
