Though the Iceland team is the underdog going into this match, England is not taking them lightly. “We sent five people to Paris to watch Iceland play Austria,” Roy Hodgson, 68, manager of Team England, tells The Guardian. With this extra knowledge, Roy’s expected to use Daniel Sturridge, 26, in hopes that he’ll score another epic goal the way he did in the Europa League Finals.
Iceland isn’t expected to dominate when they play this game. The team has averaged only 29% possession during the Euro 2016 tournament, according to the BBC, suggesting they believe that “the best offense is a good defense.” Still, don’t expect Birkir Bjarnason, 28, or Jon Dadi Bodvarsson, 24, to just sit around, as Jon scored in the match with Austria! Still, he has a long way to go if he’s going to be the next Lionel Messi. The 29-year-old star from Argentina quit, saying that he’s done playing for his country’s home team. This announcement (and his crying during the Copa America) didn’t sit well with the Internet, who turned him into a meme!
Raheem Sterling, 21, who has struggled during the Euro 2016 tournament, is expected to replace Adam Lallana on the England side. Together, they’ll form their offensive triple-threat with Harry Kane, 22, and Daniel Sturridge. Will they send Iceland packing or will this amazing Scandinavian soccer story continue?
