Preview: Portugal vs. Iceland - European Championship Qualification

A thrilling encounter awaits football fans as Portugal and Iceland lock horns in a crucial European Championship Qualification Group J clash on 19th November 2023 at the José Alvalade stadium in Lisbon. The stakes are high, and both teams will be eager to secure vital points in their quest for a spot in the European Championship.

Form and Tactics:

Portugal, boasting an impressive record in the group, finds themselves in a strong position to qualify. With an array of talented players, including the iconic Cristiano Ronaldo leading the line, Portugal has been a force to be reckoned with. Their attacking trio of Bruno Fernandes, João Félix, and Bernardo Silva has been instrumental in their success, providing creativity and goal-scoring prowess.

Iceland, on the other hand, faces a tough challenge against the Portuguese giants. With a lineup that includes experienced players like Jóhann Guðmundsson and Alfreð Finnbogason, Iceland will look to stay compact defensively and capitalize on counter-attacks. The battle in midfield, featuring the likes of Otávio for Portugal and Í. B. Jóhannesson for Iceland, will be crucial in determining the flow of the game.

Player Spotlight:

All eyes will undoubtedly be on Cristiano Ronaldo, the talismanic Portuguese captain, whose goal-scoring exploits and leadership have been pivotal for Portugal. However, Iceland's defensive stalwarts, including Hjörtur Hermannsson and Sverrir Ingi Ingason, will aim to contain Ronaldo and disrupt Portugal's attacking rhythm.

Portugal possible starting lineup:
Costa; Cancelo, Inacio, Dias, Guerreiro; Fernandes, Palhinha, B Silva; Felix, Ronaldo, Jota

Iceland possible starting lineup:
Olafsson; Sampsted, Palsson, Ingason, Finnsson; Hlynsson, Gudmundsson, Gunnarsson; A Gudjohnsen, Finnbogason, A Sigurdsson
