Iceland have been one of the outstanding teams of the tournament so far, first downing world and Olympic champions Denmark and then demolishing Russia. As they prepare for their final preliminary match against Hungary, coach Gudmundur Gudmunsson and players including Gudjon Valur Sigurdsson talked about the secrets of this year's success.

09:30 LAST DAY OF THE PRELIMINARY ROUND!

Today is the last day of the preliminary round. Two teams have the chance to make the main round still in group E - Iceland are already qualified, while Russia cannot make it. That leaves Hungary and Denmark in the running. A win or draw against Iceland would give Hungary the spot, but if they lose Denmark have the opportunity to seize a place.
