Group E concludes today and there’s some real suspense. In the first match Iceland will have the pseudo Danish home crowd in Malmo behind them as they take on Hungary. This is because a win by Hungary will shockingly eliminate the current World Champions from the tournament. Iceland has already qualified, but they would prefer to win and take the 2 points from their big win over Denmark with them to the Main Round. After this match Denmark will be big favorites over Russia.
Note: there is also an unlikely scenario involving 1 goal wins: Link
