The top two teams in Group A come face to face on sunday night as Iceland travel to the Czech Republic. Both teams have won three in a row and are top of the group in a difficult qualifying group with the Netherlands also involved. The Czech Republic will look to Arsenal's Tomas Rosicky and Chelsea's Petr Cech to lead them to a home win against an improving Iceland side. Watfords's Vydra will be a key asset up front for the Czech Republic and I think that they will be looking to grab the inititative in the group by getting a home win.
Probably the biggest shock of the qualifying campaign so far was Iceland's comprehensive win against the Netherlands. Simply put the Icelandic side were just the better team and were inspired to a famous victory by Swansea's Sigurdsson. With Ajax front man Sigporsson leading the line Iceland have proven to be a side that can play with the big boys. This is going to be a huge test for Iceland and if they come away from Prague with something then the rest of europe will have to sit up and take notice.

Two well balanced teams facing off here on Sunday evening. On paper I cant split them and having watched Iceland's second team hold their own with Belgium on Wednesday night I cant help but feel that they will do likewise on Sunday evening. I am going to take the draw as I dont think either team has enough to win the game outright.
