How does Iceland arrive?
The Icelandic team begins a new football process after being left out of the process towards Qatar 2022 in the first round of the European qualifiers. The team took advantage of the FIFA date to put on this friendly game against the San Marino team because Russia was disqualified from international tournaments due to the war against Ukraine. This is why, having one less space in the UEFA Nations League calendar, they took the opportunity to have a game with San Marino and thus maintain the rhythm of the team. Iceland’s mission is to qualify for EURO 2024 and continue to demonstrate the team’s potential ahead of the upcoming qualifiers for the Canada-United States-Mexico 2026 World Cup.

How does San Marino get here?
Those from San Marino come to this duel after being left without a ticket to the Qatar 2022 World Cup in the first round of the European qualifiers by finishing in last place in Group I, behind England, Poland, Albania, Hungary and Andorra. The representative of San Marino is one of the weakest teams in UEFA and little by little it shows a growth process, although it is still quite far from competing with the European mid-table teams. However, San Marino is in Group 2 of League D in the UEFA Nations League and, being a group of 3 teams, they have a space to play against Iceland and continue to show progress in their football for the future.
Good day to all VAVEL readers! Welcome to the live broadcast of the San Marino vs. Iceland match, corresponding to the international friendly. The match will take place at the San Marino Stadium at 1:45 p.m.
