Portugal vs Iceland by Mudhara_9er

Portugal
VS
Iceland
Portugal will open their Euro 16 campaign against Iceland. The Portuguese squad is like always filled with exciting quality players but no out and out center forward of high quality, this position could be filled by Ronaldo tonight.

 

Portugal are favourites to win against a tricky Iceland squad who have a respectable defence and in Sigurdsen have a players of creating something special.

 

Tonight I feel Portugal should win but Iceland will be difficult to break down. The Portuguese side have a rock solid defence that will definitely keep Icelands attacks lukewarm.

 

Since their 3-0 victory over Luxembourg in a World Cup qualification in 2013 Portugal have not won an International competitive match by more then 2 goals. The side is well known for attacking play via the wings.

 

Iceland defeated Netherlands twice in their pursuit to qualify for Euro 16 and that is warning enough for Portugal. The side is well balanced without any world class player and will rely heavily on the collective to secure points. This is a tough opening match for them but being underdogs gives them the chance to play without very high expectations, which will suit them well.

 

This match has the potential to continue the low scoring results of the tournament as both sides are solid at the back. With players such as Ronaldo, Nani, Moutinho and so on Portugal should be able to open up Icelands defence, and then seal the victory via cruise control.
