Sigurosson has played all his career in the Russian Premier League which makes it unlikely that he has ever faced such level of opposition before.He will be trying to nullify Hungary’s main goal threat in Adam Szalai.

Birkir Bjarnason has built himself a good reputation. A powerful presence with a good eye for goal, Bjarson will be one of the biggest threats for the Hungarian team. Dzsudzsak will be looking to stop him from gaining control in midfield.

Birkir should shade it.

Swansea playmaker Gylfi Sigurosson will be looking to score the goals for this Iceland team. His experience playing at the highest level in the Champions League should come in handy for a team that does not have much experience. Roland is an accomplished defender who will be charge of stopping any such goal threats.

The imposing strike, Kolbeinn Sigborsson has slowly turned into one of the most reliable sources of goals for this Iceland team. Possessing a mean shot and good at set pieces, he will be a major threat from his team. Zoltan Gera is an experienced player who will ensure that this does not happen.

Zoltan

Very Even.
