Portugal, on the other hand, recently defeated Bosnia and Herzegovina 3-0. Portugal won the game thanks to goals from midfielders Bernardo Silva of Manchester City and Bruno Fernandes of Manchester United.

Iceland vs Portugal prediction

Isak Bergmann Johannesson is arguably the most exciting of Iceland’s young, promising footballers. The midfielder, 20, who currently plays for Copenhagen after being hailed as a bright prospect during his time with IFK Norrkoping, is anticipated to play a significant role for his country’s team in the years to come.

Portugal, on the other side, boasts a team that is among the best in all of international soccer. While midfielders like Bernardo Silva and Bruno Fernandes are in the prime of their careers and should play a crucial part at the international level for the foreseeable future, an assault led by Rafael Leao and Joao Felix will instil fear into the hearts of most defenders.

Young defensive players like Nuno Mendes, Goncalo Inacio, and Antonio Silva are anticipated to be the core of the Portuguese defence of the future. It will be intriguing to see what Roberto Martinez accomplishes with this talented Portugal team, who have previously faced criticism for falling short of expectations.

Portugal is expected to win this match because they are the favourites to do so.
