The Welsh were named in Group B along with Andorra, Belgium, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Cyprus and Israel and they will fancy their chances of securing the runners up or third place spot in the group.

To date the Welsh will have to improve on their performances in the qualifying groups for Brazil.

Chris Coleman’s side won just three games, two against Scotland and at home to Macedonia, and lost 6, including a 6-1 drubbing at the hands of Serbia.

The Welsh have not qualified for a tournament since the 1958 World Cup but will use the games against Iceland and Holland in June as preparation for their opener against Andorra.

With Coleman able to call on players of the calibre of Gareth Bale and Aaron Ramsey there is no shortage of talent, however getting the two fit and ready for action will prove more of an issue.

Bale, who is in the squad and set to feature on Wednesday has only played in two of Wales last 6 games while Ramsey is currently injured.

Manchester City starlet Emyr Huws, currently impressing on loan at Birmingham could come in for his debut while Swansea captain Ashley Williams will be assessed prior to the game as he struggles with illness.

Iceland meanwhile narrowly missed out on a trip to Brazil this summer when they lost to put 2-0 on aggregate to Croatia, despite drawing 0-0 at home.

While they will have to wait for an elusive first World Cup appearance, a maiden attendance at the European championship could also have to wait after Iceland were paired with Czech Republic, Turkey, the Netherlands, Latvia and Kazakhstan for the 2016 event.

Lars Lagerback and his men will take hope from the fact that they finished ahead of Slovenia and Norway in the qualification for Brazil and they will hope to rebuild their confidence starting against a Welsh side they have only beaten once in 6 attempts since 1980.
