Iceland take on Austria in their final Group E game of Euro 2016 on Wednesday at the Stade de France. A win is important for both teams. While Iceland will join Hungary from the group in the last 16 of the competition with a win, a victory for Austria could still keep their hopes of progressing alive.

While Iceland are coming into the match at the back of an undefeated record, Austria have suffered a defeat and a draw so far in the competition. 

Team news

"I feel pretty confident," said Iceland joint-coach Lars Lagerback to the UEFA website ahead of the game. "I expect the players to take a step up; we have to improve in attack, but otherwise I think they have handled the games absolutely top-class. We go into every game to try to win it.

"That will be the general approach [against Austria] but we also need to ensure we don't make any silly mistakes."

Austria, meanwhile, tipped as one of the favourites to make it to the knockout stages of the competition at the start, have to rely on a win and some luck to make it to the last 16. "We just need to score. It doesn't matter how it goes over the line – all that matters is that it does," said Austria coach Marcel Koller.

"Austria have never got beyond this stage. It would be a success for the country, for the team and also for the backroom staff, who have also been working incredibly hard."

Scoring goals has been a worry for the teams from the group and it just needs to be seen if they can make some turnaround in their final group game. Watch the other Group E encounter between Hungary and Portugal HERE.
