Having qualified for the 2018 FIFA World Cup a month ago, Iceland will take on the Czech Republic in a friendly match at Doha’s Abdullah bin Khalifa Stadium tonight. On the other hand, the Czech Republic finished third behind Germany and Northern Ireland in their group and will not be heading to the World Cup next year.
Let us jump straight into the team news.
Iceland Team News
With Iceland already having secured qualification for the World Cup, manager Heimir Hallgrimsson is expected to make a lot of changes to his starting XI. Star midfielder Gylfi Sigurdsson will be the key for the Icelanders in the friendly against the Czechs. Burnley midfielder Johann Berg Gudmundsson is another valuable Icelandic asset.
Probable XI: Halldórsson; Sævarsson, R. Sigurdsson, Árnason, Magnússon; Gunnarsson, Hallfredsson; Gudmundsson, Gylfi, Bjarnasson; Alfred-Finnbogason.
Czech Republic Team News
Like the Icelanders, the Czechs are expected to make a lot of changes to their usual starting XI and will field a younger team. Michal Krmencik will be the key players for the Czechs.
Probable XI: Koubek; Kaderábek, Luftner, Kalas, Novak; Kopic, Dockal, Sykora, Jankto; Krmencik, Barák.
