England to beat Iceland 4/1 Paid in cash
England face off against Iceland at the Stade de Nice in the final match of the last 16 fixtures, this is a huge match and Roy Hodgson’s men will be looking to end the Iceland fairytale as they bid to progress to the Quarter-Finals of the competition.
England come into this match having finished second in Group B behind rivals Wales by just one point. They have a mixed record in the competition despite their last performance seeing them draw 0-0 against Slovakia but given that they secured qualification and England will be happy and confident with the draw ahead of them.
England have been one of the standout performers of the tournament but they have had the frustrating knack of dominating possession but not capitalising on that with goals and results and if they are to achieve anything in this tournament they will have to rediscover their ruthless streak.
England have conceded just the two goals in the tournament so far with the defence the perceived weakness at the start of the tournament but the only blemish so far has been the lapse in concentration against Russia. It is in front of goal that they have struggled with just three goals scored and they will need to find their killer instinct.
England were one of the favourites to progress to the latter stages albeit it would have been as the group winners but their results haven’t quite been there.
England remain the favourites in this tie, they will be looking to beat an Iceland side that are making their maiden appearance at the European Championships.
