ENGLAND face Iceland in Reykjavik, hoping to exact revenge following their Euro 2016 exit.

Previous meetings

Iceland and England have met three times in international football, with a victory apiece.

Their first meeting ended in a 1-1 draw back in June 1982, before 6-1 hammering by England at the 2004 European Championships in Portugal as Wayne Rooney and Darius Vassell both got braces.

But Iceland got revenge in 2016, as they knocked the Three Lions out on their way to the quarter-finals.

Yet, England will host Iceland for the first time when the pair meet in the reverse fixture of this Uefa Nations League campaign at Wembley Stadium on November 18, 2020.
