Overview

Host nation France will be facing Iceland in the fourth and the final quarter-final clash of the European championship. For this fixture, considering the strong attacking lineup they possess and also the support from the home fans, France are the favourites.

The attack includes Olivier Giroud, Dimitri Payet and Antoine Griezmann as the latter two have been in fine form for Didier Deschamps' side. The trio are likely to start against Iceland with Deschamps having the option to call Manchester United star Anthony Martial from the bench.

France defeated the Republic of Ireland in the Round of 16 in a clash that saw them come from behind to seal a 2-1 win. Atletico Madrid's Griezmann scored two goals in three minutes in the second half to make sure his side are still alive in the tournament.

Deschamps will be hoping his side can seal another victory in the 90 minutes as he would be looking to avoid penalties. However, he would have warned his players not to take their quarter-final opponent lightly, especially considering their record so far in the Euro 2016.

Iceland sealed a berth in the last eight after knocking England out of the Euros. Following the defeat, the Three Lions manager Roy Hodgson stepped down from his post. Despite taking an early lead from Wayne Rooney's penalty, England were unable to press ahead.

Just minutes after the Manchester United captain had given his side the lead, Ragnar Sigurdsson scored the equaliser in the sixth minute of the match. Twelve minutes later, it was Kolbeinn Sigþorsson who gave Iceland the much needed lead as they made it to the quarter-final of the Euro 2016.
