Iceland make three changes to their starting XI for their World Cup group decider against Croatia.

Iceland manager Heimir Hallgrimsson has made three changes to his starting XI for tonight's deciding World Cup group match against Croatia.

Sverrir Ingi Ingason has been drafted into the defence in place of former Aberdeen centre-back Kari Arnason.

Reading's Jon Dadi Bodvarsson drops to the bench to make way for Udinese midfielder Emil Hallfredsson, while Johann Berg Gudmundsson is prefered to Rurik Gislason.

Croatia, who have already qualified for the knockout stage, have made wholesale changes to their lineup for the group finale.

Only Luka Modric and Ivan Perisic have kept their place from the side which saw off Argentina 3-0 last time out.

Iceland: Halldorrson; Saevarsson, Ingason, R. Sigurdsson, Magnusson; Gunnarsson, Hallfredsson; J. Gudmundsson, Bjarnson, G. Sigurdsson; Finnbogason
Subs: Fridjonsson, Gudmundsson, Sigurdarson, Schram, Runarsson, Arnason, Eyjolfsson, Skulason, Gislason, Traustason, Bodvarsson, Skulason

Croatia: L. Kalinic; Corluka, Jedvaj, Caleta-Car, Pivaric; Modric, Badelj; Pjaca, Perisic, Kovacic; Kramaric
Subs: Livakovic, Vrsaljko, Strinic, Lovren, Rakitic, Brozovic, Bradaric, Mandzukic, Rebic, Vida, Subasic
