2020/21 Nations League: new format explained

2020/21 Nations League: new format explained

• Belgium have won all 11 of their previous meetings with Iceland, most recently beating them 3-0 away and 2-0 at home in the 2018/19 UEFA Nations League.

• Iceland have not scored in their last eight competitive games against Belgium, since they lost 5-2 at home against the Red Devils in a World Cup qualifier in 1957.

What the coaches say

Roberto Martínez, Belgium coach: “It was a difficult start to the game for us [in Saturday’s 2-0 win in Denmark], but my team’s reaction in the second half was very good. With Iceland, I expect a similar performance [to Saturday against England]; I was surprised by the organisation and defensive timing of their set-up. They defend very well and we will have to break this organisation to make a difference.”

Erik Hamrén, Iceland coach: “It’s No1 in the world against No39, so everyone expects a Belgian victory. That was also the case in the previous edition of the Nations League two years ago. I didn’t think we were playing too poorly back then, but we lost twice. We must play as a team, handle the one-on-one situations and offer something going forwards. Being realistic, our best chance of a goal is on the counterattack.”
