Final Prediction

Although Iceland has been performing well in the Euro 2016, France is a favorite among soccer fans. Since they are playing on the home ground, they have an advantage at this game. However, since Iceland has remained undefeated in this game and fans want France to win, it will be better to wait for Sunday to see the result. However, the odds of France winning are better since their defense is stronger and they have lost only two goals in their last four games.
