After their 2-0 defeat to Belgium on Sunday, England will now host Iceland at Wembley this Wednesday.

As it stands, Three Lions can not qualify for next year’s UEFA Nations League finals and it is a dead rubber, while Iceland have already been relegated to League B.

England are likely to make changes to their line-up due to various injuries, but Southgate’s side will be hoping to have a better performance against Iceland than they managed in September’s 0-1 win.

England vs. Iceland Prediction

Iceland have all it takes with a squad shorn of most of its stars, this should be a winnable game for a devastated England side.

The worry for England fans will be that Southgate sticks to the usual tactics he’s used recently, but the attacking skills of the likes of Jack Grealish, and Harry Kane should be able to make the difference in this game.
