FRA VS ICE DREAM11 MATCH PREDICTION, PLAYING XI, PREVIEW, FANTASY TEAM NEWS

By Anurag Tyagi

The FRA vs ICE Dream11 match preview –

Reigning world champions France will look to make it two-in-two in the Euro 2020 qualifiers when they face Iceland in the 2nd match at Stade de France in Saint-Denis, France on Monday night.

The Les Bleus flexed their muscles on their way to a resounding 1-4 win on the road against Moldova. That was the kind of the start manager Didier Deschamps was hoping for in the Euro 2020 qualifiers from his men after a rather underwhelming UEFA Nations League campaign. The win put them well and truly in command of their group.

Deschamps would have hoped for a more complete performance from his men and keep a clean sheet.  But the attacking prowess his men showcased was a jot to watch.

Antoine Griezmann, Raphael Varane, Olivier Giroud and Kylian Mbappe all were on the scoresheet for the world champions.

Iceland, meanwhile, are still struggling to match the height they reached two years ago when this nation achieved the unthinkable at the Euro 2016.

Placed alongside Hungary, Portugal and Austria, Iceland ended the group stage unbeaten and at 2nd place, thus qualifying to the knockout rounds. The round-of-16 was the tie where they produced one of the shocking results of all-time, knocking football powerhouse England out of the competition.

The Strákarnir okkar went even further as they secured their first ever FIFA World Cup spot. That was the highest they flew.

Erik Hamrén is the man in charge now and his team has a good start under him, winning the first game 0-2 against Andorra.
