Iceland frustrated Switzerland for the second time in four days, their 2-1 win at home against Albania meaning that Ottmar Hitzfeld's side cannot be sure of winning FIFA World Cup qualifying Group E until October.

Iceland came from 4-1 down to secure a remarkable 4-4 draw in Berne on Friday and moved up to second place in this section after trailing to Albania. Birkir Bjarnason and Kolbeinn Sigthórsson responded with strikes after Valdet Rama had put Albania into a ninth-minute lead with an accurate shot.
