Iceland vs Belgium UEFA Nations League
It is certain that red devils are one of the fashion teams of international football but this odd is somewhat exaggerated given that Iceland has risen a lot in terms of quality and competitiveness and it is not easy to beat the Icelanders at home with all the “brutal” support they receive in their stronghold that has inspired other teams and other countries.
The Belgium based on a 3-5-2 is really very powerful midfield forward with dazzling football and cross-line solutions that players like Dembélé, Meunier, Hazard or Dries Mertens can offer, but of course without Kevin De Bruyne the gear turns out to get stuck and lose verticality and above all improvisational ability – now as several top selections have already discovered the creativity and originality in the attack is essential to undo this very well organized Iceland and very competent in occupying spaces and playing low block.
In addition, Iceland will focus on the physical game where it has clear dominance and advantage over the Belgians and each free or lateral throw in the midfield will be used to test the ability of the Belgians to defend “aerial balls” in their area.
And even without Alfred Finnbogason in attack the Icelandic game model should remain the same.

On the other hand, in addition to the Belgians having natural difficulties against very tight teams as seen in the recent friendly with the Portuguese national team, the Belgian team is not exactly an impassable wall in defensive terms, Kompany is far from what he once was as a player and Vertonghen has never been a reliable player.
In addition to the already mentioned casualties, Gunnarsson and Gudmundsson are also unavailable for the Icelandic national team.
Iceland were eliminated in the group stage of the last World Cup and did not make any friendly here after that. Belgium reached third place in the World Cup by beating the English 2-0 and in friendly beat Scotland by 4/0
