England v Iceland betting preview  

Wednesday’s game is all about pride. England can't leapfrog Denmark and Belgium after back to back losses against them. Hence, they Thee Lions will try to restore some pride after their disappointing performance in Belgium. The 2-0 defeat in Brussels ended their hopes of qualifying for the finals. What will be more worrying was England’s lack of threat in front of goal, managing just two shots on target in the game. Plus, Gareth Southgate's men are now unable to overtake Denmark even with victory on Wednesday night. A victory that is backable at 1/5 with VBet.

Iceland have lost all five of their group matches thus far, with only three goals scored and 13 conceded. They are rock-bottom and already sure to be relegated from League A of the Nations League. Anyway, they will fight to earn at least a point. The bookmakers are obviously not convinced that the minnows of Iceland can repeat that incredible Euro 2016 result - they beat the Three Lions 2-1 - and the price for an away win is 18/1 with Betfair.

Probable Line-ups

With only pride on the line in this clash, Southgate will no doubt use this game to undestand how to get the best out of his highly-rated youngsters. Ben Chilwell was forced off in Belgium with a back problem and is expected to be replaced by Bukayo Saka. The likes of Phil Foden, Ainsley Maitland-Niles and Harry Winks all given the chance to impress, while Dominic Calvert-Lewin should lead the line. 17-year-old Jude Bellingham could also be handed a start after impressing in a cameo performance against Ireland last week.

England (3-4-2-1): Pope; Walker, Keane, Mings; Maitland-Niles, Rice, Winks, Saka; Sancho, Foden; Calvert-Lewin

The visitors are without several key players as the likes of Gylfi Sigurdsson, Ragnar Sigurdsson, Alfred Finnbogason and Johann Berg Gudmundsson are playing no part. Plus, defender Hordur Magnusson is suspended and Willum Willumsson is injured. Aron Gudjohnsen and Kolbeinn Sigthorsson are expected to lead the line.

Iceland (3-5-2): Runarsson; Sampsted, Ingason, Hermansson; Saevarsson, Baldursson, Bjarnason, Johannesson, Skulason; Gudjohnsen, Sigthorsson

Head To Head

The two nations have only met twice in competitions. Iceland shocked the world with a 2-1 last-16 win against the Three Lions at Euro 2016. Southgate's men won the reverse fixture with a 0-1 scoreline after Iceland missed a penalty in the closing seconds.

Our England v Iceland Betting Tips 

England have been uninspiring in attack in the Nations League, with just three goals in their five games so far. The already relegated Nordic nation will probably play without fear in the English capital and this could favor the Three Lions's attackers.

We expect England to end a disappointing Nations League campaign on a positive note.
