The standout out player in the Iceland team. Gylfi Sigurosson will have a crucial role to play if Iceland have to progress far in to this competition. His pace and movement will be as important as his experience in  playing such big matches which should help his team.

2. David Alaba

The big superstar in the Austrian team, David Alaba has not lived up to his promise so far in France. He has not played well in both games so far and will try and create and score more opportunities for his team. How he will fare will give a good idea how the match will pan out for Alaba.

3. Kolbeinn Sigborsson

After a promising display against Hungary, Marc Janko provided a masterful performance against Portugal. His calmness under pressure was one of many attributes in an eye catching display against the rigid Portuguese team. His displays will go on to have a big say in what Austria can accomplish against Iceland. A strong showing in the Euro 2016 Austria vs Iceland match will go a long way in ensuring his team progresses through to the last 16.

5. Marco Arnautovic

Marco Arnautovic has been hot and cold in the two matches so far at the Euros. Austria would expect him to deliver sooner rather than later on a much more consistent basis. Arnautovic should be looking to score more goals for Austria if they need to progress further in this competition.
