Euro 2016: Iceland vs Hungary - 5 players to watch out for
Hungary lead Group F with three points from their opening game in Euro 2016.
Iceland take on Hungary in the third match of Group F, at the Stade Velodrome in Marseille. Hungary will look to win their sixth consecutive match against Iceland, who stood strong against a strong Portugal attack, and held on to a 1-1 draw. In their first ever European Championship, Iceland will look to take three points off a strong Hungary side, which recorded an easy 2-0 victory over Austria in their opening match of Euro 2016.
As the teams gear up for this Group F encounter, let’s take a look at the five players to watch out for in tomorrow’s clash.
1) Gylfi Sigurdsson
The former Spurs man, Gylfi Sigurdsson will be key for Iceland in this match, after he led the side with six goals and three assists in the Euro 2016 qualifiers. The Swansea man is brilliant with his passing from midfield and has the vision and skills to provide deliveries to his team-mates.
Sigurdsson also has the ability to score some delightful free-kicks, and will look to threaten Hungary’s goal. If he gets time and space on the ball, he can be dangerous with his shots from distance, and will also support the defence when Hungary attack.
In a team where the collective is more important than the individual, Sigurdsson stands out and will be vital for Iceland if they are to make a mark in Euro 2016. He will be ready to guide Iceland in this match, and inspire them to the knockout stages.
