FRA vs ICE Dream11 : Dominant France look to extend 100% winning record over Iceland come today’s qualifier
Ever since winning the World Cup back in 2018, France’s rise in the football arena has only been in the upward direction. And as the side look to move one step closer towards ascertaining themselves of a spot in next year’s Euro 2020, the country will be looking to emulate same rousting they handed to Iceland in the side’s previous clash.
The last time these two sides had clashed heads in France, the French had gone onto win 4-0 in a performance which was as comprehensive and convincing as they come. It was a spectacular display by the side, one which emoted the culture of excellence across all verticals and disciplines in their side as they manifested their skill set with a complete performance.
It was a much needed result for France, particularly one the side were craving for after being sent packing by Turkey in what was undoubtedly the biggest stunner from the group up till now. It sees France placed in second place, behind Turkey on goal difference with both the sides having tallied 15 points in 6 matches till now.
Elsewhere, Iceland have continued to keep themselves in the contention of a qualifying spot from the group with the four wins in 6 matches with the side showing they are more than just pushovers. Currently behind France by three points, although today’s clash is a tall order, the side will be looking to show it can make things jittery for a side against whom they have not been able to register a single win in the 14 matches the two have squared off till now.

FRA vs ICE Dream11 Goal-Keeper
With Ireland set to face an onslaught on their goal today by France side against whom they have shipped in 41 goals in 14 encounters, their goal-keeper, Hannes Halldorsson looks to be a good pick for this clash. The shot stopper is going to be peppered and perturbed today by a barrage of shots, a rhetoric which should see him subject us to a plethora of save points.
FRA vs ICE Dream11 Defenders
France kept a cleansheet the last time these two sides met and the side look more than capable of delivering a shut out reminiscent to that particular display. Ireland’s plight is not only in the defensive facet but in the attacking cauldron as well against the French with the side only managing to scruff together a few attacking plays up the park.
This scenario sees us bring in Benjamin Pavard, Raphael Varane and Lucas Hernandez from the side, players who will not only come back with a cleansheet but are also capable of pulling out a goal or assist in this pertinent clash. The singular pick comes into our side from Iceland as well with us opting for Ragnar Sigurdsson for this clash.
FRA vs ICE Dream11 Midfielders
N’Golo Kante has been missing for France for quite some time now with the enigmatic and diminutive midfielder suffering an injury issue but he looks to have finally recovered from the peril. And he’s set to earn a spot back into the side straightaway with the player being transformed into one of the most complete and sublime players in his position in the world across the course of 2019, someone who has discovered goals in his kitty to make him an instant pick for us.
Kingsley Coman comes in as well for us while from Ireland we have the sole pick come in yet again in the form of Runar Mar Sigurjonsson.
FRA vs ICE Dream11 Strikers
With France being so effervescent and luscious in their attacking sorties, ones which are set to see the side cascade their way to a slew of goals and play a siege of Iceland. The side have sizzled with their attacking displays, ones which have been executed so succinctly given the tenacity Oliver Giroud and Antoine Griezmann have manifested for the side.
We are also picking out Iceland’s striker for this one with Kolbeinn Sigborsson coming into our setup with the player the likeliest of all to try and muster up a goal for his side in this clash.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Giroud is being made our side’s captain for the forthcoming match while Griezmann is the vice-captain.
