A point from the last two group games will probably be more than enough more Switzerland to clinch top spot in Group E while four teams remain in with a chance of reaching the playoffs. Icland are in the driving seat for the runners up spot and depending on results elsewhere, could seal the deal against the group whipping boys on Friday.
Iceland raised hopes of reaching their first ever major tournament when sinking Albania 2-1 in Reykjavik last month and just need to hold their nerve in the last two games. Lars Lagerback’s men are one point clear of nearest rivals Slovenia and two better off than Norway who clash on Friday. It’s possible that victory against Cyprus could clinch second for Iceland if the aforementioned match is drawn and Albania fail to beat Switzerland in Tirana.

Iceland have an exciting new generation of players coming through from a successful U-21 side but newcomers like Johan Gudmundsson and Gylfi Sigurdsson who have already stepped up, must guard against complacency against Friday’s visitors. Cyprus is another nation that has never advanced to a major tournament but has delivered a number of surprise results in qualifying campaigns. They shocked Europe when recording a 4-4 draw in Portugal in the EURO 2012 qualifiers and picked up their only win of this World Cup qualifying campaign when defeating Iceland 1-0 in Lanarca 12 months ago.
