Match preview

2021 International Friendly, Faroe Islands will play against with Iceland at home. Before football was brought to a halt by the coronavirus pandemic, Iceland had been building some momentum ahead of an appearance in the Euro 2020 playoffs. However, few nations have suffered more from the delay than Strakarnir okkar, who have lost 10 of the 12 matches played since September. One of those setbacks was an agonising defeat in Hungary, ending their hopes of qualifying for a third major tournament in succession. While Arnar Vidarsson's side have since squared off against many top nations, their 2-0 defeat against Armenia in March strengthened the feeling that their brief time at the top tier of international football had come to an end. Nevertheless, Vidarsson will take the positives from Iceland only succumbing 2-1 to Mexico in Texas at the weekend. From the perspective of the Faroe Islands, this will feel like a good opportunity to record their first success since beating Andorra in October. Although they were thrashed by Scotland last time out, Hakan Ericson has brought about improvements in all areas of the pitch since his appointment in 2019. They have recently earned draws in Latvia, Malta and Moldova, as well as briefly leading Austria away from home before succumbing to a 3-1 reverse. Ericson's side have only failed to score in two of their last 11 meetings, their only blanks coming in Denmark and at Hampden Park.
