Euro 2016 - No slip allowed for Portugal

If logic is to be respected, Portugal and Austria should finish in the first 2 places of Group F. Hungary and Iceland should be vying for the third place spot.

Portugal cannot afford to lose any points against lowly Iceland. They will probably be made to wait to make the difference but should be able to do so in the end. Obviously, much will depend on Christiano Ronaldo's imprint on the match; the Real Madrid striker relishes bullying this type of weak opposition.

Austria were impressive in qualifying but less convincing in their recent matches, notably being thoroughly beaten by the Netherlands in a warm-up match. They have a solid squad with some notable names such as Arnatautic and Janko. I cannot see Hungary upsetting the odds here and Austria should sail to a more or less comfortable win.

Win: Portugal, Austria
