The Three Lions’ final friendly clash before taking on Serbia in their Euro 2024 opener.

Euro 2024 is just around the corner. England will host Iceland in a friendly for what will be their final game in preparation for the tournament.

The Three Lions made hard work of their clash with Bosnia-Herzegovina on Monday but still ran out 3-0 winners, while their visitors have not been in action since having their Euros dreams dashed by Ukraine in March. Boasting a squad that is stacked with attacking superstars, Gareth Southgate’s side will certainly be smelling the chance to lay down another marker when they return to Wembley this weekend.

Iceland missed out on European qualification. They earned a place in the playoff phase despite finishing fourth in their group and faced Israel in the first game. They won 4-1, which set up a game with Ukraine. However, they were beaten 2-1 late on to end their European hopes. It will be a very difficult match for the away team as the home team have a lot of individual qualities which can make a difference.

Form

Players to Watch

Declan Rice (England)

Declan Rice is defined by his defensive work but isn’t limited to just that. He is also perfectly competent playing with the ball at his feet. Rice isn’t a playmaker by trade, he is defensive and focuses his game within that defensive scope, but he is effective with the ball at his feet. He can also score goals, especially from outside the box. The England midfielder also has a very good work rate.

Andri Gudjohnsen (Iceland)

Andri Guðjohnsen is very good in the air. The Iceland forward can somewhat be characterised as a penalty box poacher, with a lot of his finishes being based on quick reactions to get in front of defenders and put shots away. Guðjohnsen is physically strong and capable enough to beat opponents in one-on-one situations.
