Iceland vs Norway

It has been a remarkable few years for Iceland as they have climbed from being ranked 131st by FIFA just six years ago to being ranked the 22nd best international side in the world. Now they are set to feature in their first ever World Cup and will be hoping to repeat their impressive performances in the 2016 European Championships.

Before they can get too excited about this summer’s trip to Russia, they first have plenty of preparations to do and that begins with this weekend’s friendly match against Norway. Even though they failed to qualify for this summer’s festivities, the visitors will be no easy ride and they come into this match having claimed a couple of friendly wins in March and experienced head coach Lars Lagerback will be keen to maintain the momentum.

Iceland made a huge impression at Euro 2016 after they progressed from their pool and famously defeated England in the first knockout round. A quarter-final exit to France was built on by a decent World Cup qualifying campaign which saw them register seven wins from 10 games.

Argentina, Croatia and Nigeria await at Russia 2018, but the smallest nation by population ever to reach the finals goes into that tournament with a settled side and have proven in their last few games that they have the firepower to cause trouble for any opposition. Their last four matches have all finished with over 2.5 goals scored.

Norway could only manage fourth place in their World Cup qualifying group, picking up 13 points from 10 fixtures in a section featuring Germany, Northern Ireland and the Czech Republic. They did, however, close the campaign with an 8-0 romp away to San Marino and then a 1-0 home win over Northern Ireland.

Although they were disappointing in their friendlies following the conclusion of qualifying, March’s 4-1 triumph over Australia and 1-0 victory in Albania got things back on track. The visitors will also be fully confident heading into a match with opposition they frequently get the better of, and we think that they may look to try and make a statement against a side who has qualified for this summer’s World Cup whilst they have to watch from home.

USA vs Ireland

The United States make the leap across the pond to Dublin to take on Ireland tomorrow (3:00pm ET, ESPN2), and they bring a squad that has quite a few changes from the one that beat Bolivia Monday night. The last time the USMNT was in Dublin was in November 2014, where they were smoked by the Irish 4-1. This time, they meet an Ireland side that has some experienced players playing along some newcomers. It will be on the young USMNT squad to get a result at Aviva Stadium and avenge the demons of 2014.

Withstand the pressure: The Irish are going to bring it. Can the Yanks respond and weather the storm? It will be crucial to not get discouraged or panic against this team because even though Ireland will not be at the World Cup, they are still a tough team.

Be aggressive: It worked on Monday, so why not continue it? I loved how aggressive the team was against Bolivia, as it caused turnovers and scoring chances. Take advantage of mistakes and we could have some great opportunities to score.

Use the speed: With the young legs of the USMNT contains a lot of speed. Up and down the roster, we have guys that can go. Use that. It’s going to be a cooler night in Dublin, so the team can get out running and not be bogged down by warm, muggy conditions. This is where we can beat the Irish.

Lineup Prediction

With several changes, I think interim American manager Dave Sarachan starts mostly guys who didn’t start against Bolivia with the exception of some of the guys who performed the best Monday night:

Between the posts, Bill Hamid wants revenge. His only loss as a MNT starter was that 2014 match in Dublin and he wants to show that he can be the starter. He gets the nod. In the back, Antonee Robinson returns to the starting lineup after a terrific performance against Bolivia. I think Matt Miazga and Cameron Carter-Vickers will form the centerback duo, while Jorge Villafana will also get a start.

In the middle, could it be a glimpse at the future? It’s a pairing of Tyler Adams and Weston McKennie towards the back, while Kenny Saief and Tim Weah flank them on the wings.

Up front, I think Bobby Wood makes his return to the lineup, with Josh Sargent joining him after scoring against Bolivia.

Match Prediction

This will be a struggle for the Americans to get a lot of quality production against the Irish, but I think we will get the result. Call it a 1-1 draw, which would be a great result for this young squad and give them a ton of confidence heading to Lyon.

What’s your expectations for tomorrow?

Austria vs Germany

Despite failing to book their place in Russia, Austria come into this fixture in excellent form. The hosts have won each of their last six fixtures, while they’ve kept a clean sheet in each of their last three. Wednesday’s win over Russia will have given Franco Foda’s men the confidence required to take on the world champions, though facing a menacing Germany side is likely to be far tougher than taking on a relatively weak Russian outfit.

Having played a couple of friendlies back in March, neither of which they won, this will be the Germans first warm-up game ahead of the World Cup. Given the rather unusually bad form of his side – the world champions have failed to win any of their last five matches – manager Joachim Löw will be hoping to see improvements in this match. However, the result is largely irrelevant as far as the visitors are concerned and their may even be some experimentation done as Löw looks to work out his best set up ahead of this month’s huge tournament.

As one of football’s biggest and best nations, Germany are always hard to go against, though with this being a friendly, coupled with the fact that they’ve not been in great form of late, its not all that difficult to avoid the visitors at the seemingly stingy prices. With the betting the way it is, the selection that stands out is ‘Under 2.5 Goals’.

Germany are sometimes a tough side to stop but their performances against both Spain and Brazil in March were far from convincing, especially from an attacking point of view. Against Brazil in particular, Die Mannschaft, who managed just a single shot on target, were particularly weak offensively. They do of course have plenty of forward talent and Austria should be easier to face, though they may not be looking to go all out in this one.

Aside from their most recent exploits, Germany have a rather low-key record in friendlies in recent times. Just one goal went in when they lost against Brazil last time out, while there wasn’t too much to talk about when they drew 1-1 with Spain prior to that. What’s more, the Germans have struggled to put their best foot forward when playing friendlies away from home over the last few years. Since 2015, the Germans are without a win in away friendlies, while they’ve scored just one goal during that time. Interestingly, all four of those friendlies have seen less than three goals go in.

In beating Russia 1-0 last time out, Austria acquitted themselves reasonably well, but they failed to carry as much of a threat as was perhaps anticipated. As they were unable to really get at a weak Russian back-line, it’s easy to see the hosts faltering against the very defensively astute Germans. However, having kept two clean sheets in their last two at home, the hosts may fancy themselves to frustrate a German side who’ve misfired a tad of late.

All in all, with the Germans likely to be nowhere near the peak of their powers, coupled with the fact that they’ve struggled to put their best foot forward in recent friendlies, a low-key affair is expected to unfold. On this basis, ‘Under 2.5 Goals’ gets the nod.

Head to head

England and Nigeria have faced each other twice: the two teams drew 0-0 at the 2002 World Cup, while the Three Lions won a friendly 1-0 back in 1994.
Team news

Eric Dier and Kieran Trippier are set to start for England against Nigeria in the first of their two World Cup warm-up matches.

Standard Sport understands the Tottenham duo are likely to be involved from the outset at Wembley with Liverpool pair Jordan Henderson and Trent Alexander-Arnold set to miss the game having been given extended leave following last weekend’s Champions League Final.

Dier is likely to anchor England’s midfield in Henderson’s absence while Trippier will be given the opportunity to nail down a right wing-back position for which Alexander-Arnold now provides genuine competition.

Gareth Southgate is keen to use Kyle Walker as a right-sided centre-back in Russia, meaning Trippier and Alexander-Arnold are in a straight fight for a spot on the right flank.

Henderson is considered a key player by Southgate and, fitness pending, is likely to be in the starting line-up for England’s Group G opener against Tunisia on June 18.

Wales take on South Africa’s Springboks at the Robert F. Kennedy Memorial Stadium in Washington DC, USA. This is a rare special event, the first rugby game of its kind in that stadium.

The game is due to kick-off on Saturday June 2 at 10pm BST, 5pm ET, 2pm PT, 7AM AEST Sunday morning, and 9pm in the evening Johannesburg time.

This will be the second time ever that Wales and South Africa have faced each other at a neutral ground. Previously they played, in 1998, at London’s Wembley Stadium where the Springboks won 28-20.

Warren Gatland’s Welsh squad have been hard at training for the clash which will be captained by Ellis Jenkins. In fact they’ve even been training on the US navy base where the team proved popular with the naval students. This is a one-off test match for the two sides and will be the first professional rugby match held at the 45,423 capacity ground.

The Springbok team is set to be a young one with seven debutants in the squad. Wales have won their last two encounters and so the South Africans will be looking for revenge.
