Worth mentioning: The two teams met just over 5 months ago in a friendly game that ended 2:2. Back then France rescued the draw thanks to two late goals, one own goal and a Kylian Mbappe penalty in added time. All of the last seven H2H encounters witnessed goals being scored at both ends. Six of those featured over 2,5 goals, while none of the last four matches ended with under 3,5 goals. Just two of those seven matches were played in Iceland, which makes it even more impressive for the islanders. All of the last five meetings in France featured over 3,5 goals and saw both sides hitting the back of the nets.
