"We know a tough game awaits us. We know the Czechs are ready to come at us, but we are ready to respond," said Iceland captain Aron Gunnarsson during his team's press conference in Plzen.

"I see it at all our training sessions: everybody is focused and there is a high tempo and quality. Hopefully we will have a great game."

Meanwhile, coach Lars Lagerbäck confirmed that his squad is fully fit to face the Czech Republic, before shining the spotlight on his opposite number, Pavel Vrba. "I have to praise coach Vrba for what he has managed to achieve in such a short space of time; the composition of his team is very clever.

"He has formed a team of players he knows from his time at Plzeň and Sparta. They know each other and follow the tactics, and that's reflected in their performances."

Iceland national coaches Lars Lagerbäck and Heimir Hallgrímsson have added Rosenborg BK defender Hólmar Örn Eyjólfsson (pictured, No3) to the squad which will meet Belgium in a friendly on Wednesday and the Czech Republic in UEFA EURO 2016 Group A on Sunday. With Rotherham United FC defender Kári Árnason battling to recover from a broken toe, once-capped Eyjólfsson will provide cover if necessary.
