They have a squad containing star players such as Cristiano Ronaldo, João Félix, Bruno Fernandes, Bernardo Silva, and Rúben Dias. Portugal also have a good record at home, having lost none of their last 14 home matches in all competitions.

Iceland also has a good record against big teams, having beaten England, the Netherlands and Turkey. They have a squad containing experienced players such as Gylfi Sigurdsson, Aron Gunnarsson, Ragnar Sigurdsson, and Hannes Halldórsson.
