    As they stand

    • Sunday’s 3-0 home loss to Denmark leaves Iceland four points adrift at the foot of Group 2. Coach Erik Hamrén said Aron Gunnarsson, Alfred Finnbogason, Jóhann Gudmundsson and Ragnar Sigurdsson would not feature against Belgium.

    • A 2-1 defeat in England ended the Red Devils’ 13-game unbeaten run (W12 D1), but Belgium remain just one point behind the Group 2 leaders.

    Highlights: Belgium 5-1 Iceland

    • Belgium have won all 12 of their previous meetings with Iceland, most recently beating them 5-1 in their first UEFA Nations League Group A2 encounter in September.

    • Iceland at least scored; they had not done so in their previous eight competitive games against Belgium, since they lost 5-2 at home to the Red Devils in a 1957 FIFA World Cup qualifier.

    What the coaches say

    Erik Hamrén, Iceland coach: “It’s always disappointing to lose. [In Sunday’s reversal against Denmark] we knew that they would have more possession, but we defended well and got better chances. The first goal changed the game, then we made a mistake in the second half where they scored another. After that it was very difficult.”

    Roberto Martínez, Belgium coach: “We played a very good first half [in the defeat against England], but the second half was not good enough. And so you lose the game. Although we had several good chances. It’s a shame to lose.”
