What a dream sequence it is going to be for Iceland? This is the first time they have qualified this mega event and that too by beating Holland. This team is going to make some trouble in its group for all its opponents. On the other hand, Mexico has been a common name for the past few years in the world cup and in Russia both these not so popular football nations are going to make some historical moments.

Our bet is on Iceland for this game because they have been in their dream run and they can take on any opponent without any fear. They will give the whole world a reason to remember their name for four more years. Mexico will try to show them who’s the boss because it is literally their home ground and they would have all the support but don’t rule out Iceland.
