This is going to be an interesting contest as Iceland will take on the group leaders Croatia and would want to repeat their last meeting in the qualifiers for the World cup where they defeated Croatia and topped their group. The chance is even bigger as Croatia is expected to feature a different set of players because most of their players are one booking away from suspension so Croatia would not risk them because they have already been qualified in the knockout stage.
