Iceland and Austria go head to head in the final group stage match at Stade de France in Paris, with both teams looking a win to qualify for knock out stage. Ireland had a decent start to the tournament, they had drawn both their games so far with 2 points. Their tactics has been paid off so far as they looked dangerous on counter attacks and set piece and could make life difficult for Austria at Paris.
Austria on the other hand were defeated 2–0 by Hungary in the opening match. In the second game, they were slightly lucky to come out with a point as Cristiano Ronaldo missed the penalty spot. Austria are the team yet to score a goal in this tournament so far. If they have a chance to qualify from group stage, their attacking players have to step up.
