Iceland v Hungary

Group F leaders Hungary will look to back up their famous victory over Austria in their first game of the group stages when they take on Iceland at the Stade Velodrome in Marseille on Saturday.

The Mighty Magyars hold the slight advantage in their seven previous encounters, winning four and losing three.

Iceland, meanwhile, come into the game on the back of a morale-boosting point against Cristiano Ronaldo's Portugal.

The competition debutants will be aiming to continue to defy the odds as they seek to progress from the group stages in their maiden Championships.

They take on a Hungary team that are certainly hungry for success and when asked about their team, Iceland's coach Heimir Hallgrimsson said: "You can see how they are progressing as a team.

"They are really a compact and solid team, known for their defensive side of the game, but against Austria you could see how strong they were in attack.

"All praise goes to Bernd Storck and the coaching team."

In team news, Iceland are likely to name an unchanged starting line-up after an encouraging performance against Portugal.

Hungary, meanwhile, will hand a late fitness test to right-back Attila Fiola, who is nursing an ankle injury.
