Portugal resumes conquer

From the three matches these two teams played, Iceland remains winless, as Portugal have one win, while the other one is draw. This meeting will be on June 21, 2023, at 2:45 AM (GMT+8), with Portugal travelling to Iceland.

Portugal’s dominance in the qualifiers is no longer a surprise, considering the number of talent and experience this squad has. In fact, they remain to be unbeaten in the contest, as they have not dropped a single point yet. Additionally, during the qualifiers, Portugal have yet to concede a single goals, earning all their nine points. They are from a 3-0 win against Bosnia & Herzegovina on their last meeting, extending their winning run. Bernardo Silva, and Bruno Fernandes sealed the win for Portugal on that match. As they play another game in the qualifiers, they are hoping to continue that run, and widen their lead with the team at the second. Considering the talent this team possess, it is not impossible for Portugal to extend their current run here.

Portugal is not safe from injury though, as they will be without Goncalo Ramos, as he sustained a problem in the thigh. Renato Sanches and Toti Gomes are absents for this match as well, which may need for Portugal to reshuffle their squad.

Iceland on the other hand is not as fortunate as Portugal, considering their record recently. However, despite not having a pleasant run, they are still looking for more wins and try to qualify for the next round. Iceland is currently at the fifth of the group stage with just three points from their one win and two losses. In fact, they are coming into this game from a 2-1 loss to Slovakia, and are looking to bounce back here. On that match, Alfred Finnbogason scored the lone goal for Iceland. They are a young team loaded with talent, and that is what they need to take advantage of in this match. One of their most exciting player is Isak Bergmann Johannesson, who is playing an important role in their campaign.

During their match against Slovakia, Iceland faced a major blow as Aron Gunnarsson sustained an issue during their warm-up. Due to this, he remains to be a question in this match. Aside from him, Iceland is still fortunate that they have no fresh injury concern when they face Portugal.
