Prediction: Iceland 1-1 Croatia
Though Iceland finished the as the second the qualifying group, our prediction goes to Croatia. Arguably Croatia i s much strong team than the Iceland. Last season the were drawn in the group with host Brazil. It was their bad luck. But this time their luck is not so good as they grouping with Argentina and Nigeria so far.
But this time they are favorite of the game. In past they played total 6 times and Croatia grabbed 4 games and 1 was drawn. Iceland won only single time. So fans enjoy the match and keep eyes in our site.
