Same old England was the story heard all group stage long.
However, they got the job done and will now take on a very passionate Iceland team in the Round of the 16 on Sunday.
Iceland making a push here into the knockout stage is quite the feat.
The start of Euro 2016 couldn’t have been a worse one for England.
It started with their fans clashing with the Russian fans, which forced a UEFA investigation.
In that match with the Russians, England broke through late to take a 1-0 lead in a game that was absolutely one sided. However, as the story has always gone for them, a goal in the 92nd minute for Russia forced England into a point.
After going down 1-0 to Wales and their tournament hopes looking ominous, England got an equalizer and then a dramatic 92nd minute goal themselves to steal 3 points.
England got their final point in a 0-0 draw in their final match against Slovakia.
Harry Kane is expected to be inserted back into the starting lineup as well here. Kane was dropped from the starting 11 against Slovakia, as his form has been down all tournament long.
Daniel Sturridge will also play a giant part here. He was the hero against Wales and has surely been one of England’s best players thus far.
After equalizing with Portugal in the 2nd half, one could tell what this tournament meant to Iceland.
Fans cried and cheered as the team earned a point against the powerhouse, which completely changed their mentality here in Euro 2016. A team that was overlooked by many, finished in 2nd because of goal differential.
Now, Iceland will look to get themselves another upset result as they take on England here in the Round of 16.
Gylfi Sigurdsson will be the one who has to step up here and create chances for this Iceland team.
The main threat offensively, Sigurdsson will have to find space in the middle of the English back 4 and really cause havoc for them. His ability to strike can open this game up and really stretch this England defense.
Expect Iceland to start this game off real slow. They cannot allow an early one here, as they aren’t built to come from behind.
Look for them to deploy the same tactics as they did against Portugal.
They allowed them to knock the ball around the mid field area with no pressure, but as soon as they hit the attacking third, Iceland was all over them.
Free England vs. Iceland Euro 2016 Prediction:
Iceland are severely outmatched here, but that doesn’t mean this team can’t pull off an upset here.
They’ve played exceptionally well here in Euro 2016 and if they can use the same gameplan and execute it like they did against Portugal, this team has a real chance to stay in this one.
4* Free Euro 2016 Betting Pick: Draw
Iceland will sit back and defend for the most part, but this one has the making of a 0-0 type of game, with a winner coming in extra time.
