England vs Iceland Team News

Adam Lallana picked up an ankle injury in training and he faces the race against clock to be fit for the Iceland game. Coach Roy Hodgson could switch to the 4-2-3-1 formation, with Jordan Henderson likely to start. Harry Kane is likely to start as well, meaning that Leicester City ace Jamie Vardy should drop to the bench. Roy Hodgon has no other selection worries ahead of the clash.

Injured: None

Doubtful: Adam Lallana (26/0)

Suspended: None

Alfred Finnbogasson returns to the starting line-up after missing the Austria game through suspension. Coach Lars Lagerback has a full squad  to choose from and he is likely to field the best possible side against England. A man to watch in the away side will be Gylfi Sigurdsson, who has netted one goal at the Euro 2016 finals to date. Lars Lagerback is likely to stick to the 4-4-2 formation.

Injured: None

Doubtful: None

Suspended: None

England vs Iceland Team News

England failed to turn their dominance into goals in the goalless draw with Slovakia and it is no surprise they are regarded as favourites in the clash against Iceland. The Three Lions have been producing fine performances at the Euro 2016 finals and seeing that Iceland were hammered by Roy Hodgson’s team in their last meeting on the international stage, home win appears on the cards. Taking everything into account, England should make it to the quarter-finals without any difficulties.

Betting Tip: England to win
