Ireland vs Iceland Prediction 28 March 2017

Tournament: International Friendlies
Location: Aviva Stadium
Match date: 28.03.2017 at 19:45

On March 28 2017 at 19:45 in the regular international friendly game Iceland national team is going to visit Ireland national football team.

Ireland have never managed to make it to eh final part of any international competition at all. Anyway, Ireland still have more or less real chances to make it to the final part of the World Cup in Russia next summer. After 5 matches played in their qualification Group D Ireland have 11 points and take the second position in the table of the group with 7:3 goal difference. The goalless draw in the latest match against Wales was the mistake which let Serbia outpace Ireland.

As for Iceland, they showed the real breakthrough at the Euros last summer in France and proved that absence of famous footballers is not a real obstacle in achieving great results in case the team has spirit and character. In the current qualifiers for the World Cup Ireland have already played 5 matches in their Group I where they drew Ukraine 1:1, lost to Croatia and outplayed Finland, Turkey and Kosovo.

The results of the latest matches played between the teams show the advantage of Ireland, in fact. Last time the teams met was in far 1997 and Ireland won 2:4. Comparing these teams, we must admit that the squad of Ireland is definitely more skilled and experienced; they have a lot of footballers playing for the teams of the top European championships. We think that in the upcoming match Ireland will manage at least not to lose.
