This is a UEFA Group E World Cup qualifying match between Iceland and Cyprus. Iceland is currently sitting in second, that would earn them a chance to compete in a playoff for a World Cup berth. It doesn’t look like they’ll catch first place Switzerland, who have a 5 point lead.

Iceland does need to be weary of other teams catching them. Three teams are within three points of their spot. If they falter and lose to Cyrpus, who sit in last place, they could lose their World Cup berth.
