England will be overwhelming favourites when they face Iceland in the Round of 16 on Monday, and this will pile further pressure on the Three Lions squad. They were expected to face Portugal in the last-16 but a last gasp winner from Arnor Ingvi Traustason against Austria in the final group game saw Iceland finish second and send the travelling Icelandic fans into frenzy.

Iceland were not expected to progress this far in the tournament, but have exceeded everyone's expectations and put in some spirited performances in the group stages. They will be a tricky prospect for Roy Hodgson as they can play without any pressure, while England will be on the edge. The Three Lions will need to sew up the game as soon as possible to ease the nerves.

The England boss came in for severe criticism for making six changes to the starting XI for their game against Slovakia, which ended in a draw that condemned England to the group that has Germany, Spain, Italy and France. Hodgson is likely to restore the players who started the first two games of the tournament with Raheem Sterling set to be the only casualty, as he will make way for Daniel Sturridge. Gary Cahill has to be on his best behaviour as he is just a booking away from a one-game suspension.

Iceland, on the other hand, are the only team apart from Spain to have played the same starting XI in all three of their group games and it is likely to continue when they face England in Nice. Lars Lagerback, the joint-coach of Iceland, is confident that the team that secured victory over Austria is locked and loaded for the all-important clash against the English. Three per cent of their population is in France supporting them and they will be behind their team in full force as they look to continue the season of football miracles, which began with Leicester City being crowned Premier League champions earlier in the summer.

England lead the head-to-head between the two nations 1-0 with their last meeting coming in 2004, when the Three Lions win 6-1.

What manager's say

Roy Hodgson (England): Tomorrow's result will be significant [for me], but most of all for the team and the country. We want to stay in the tournament, we're good enough, but we must get results and that starts tomorrow.

I've been happy with the strikers I've gone with. You never know how someone is going to play, but you do know what you're selecting. You see them in training and you try to choose the best possible players for that game. I'm fortunate that if something isn't functioning as I would like, we have options on the bench.

The experience and wisdom of Lars Lagerbäck and Roland Andersson [part of the Iceland staff] and their ability to organise a team and get the maximum out of them, and to engender a work ethic, they owe a lot to that.

Lars Lagerback (Iceland joint-coach): I would expect England to have more possession, but you never know. It's very hot. It may depend on the temperature how the match develops. We'll see if we can step up a bit when it comes to that part of the game.

We've practised penalties – some were good, some not so good. I've known Roy since 1976 and we met each other often in Sweden. We've been in contact now and then for many years, although not as much in recent times when we've been around the world.

The starting XI [from the Austria match] have had three days to reload physically and mentally. They are looking forward to the game and in the team meetings we've started to focus more and more on taking another step.
