Iceland captain Aron Gunnarsson knows a win against Norway on Tuesday would see his side earn a play-off spot for 2014 FIFA World Cup and has called the match "the most important game we have ever played".
Iceland have never reached a major tournament but would finish as runners-up in Group E with victory in Oslo, although a draw or defeat would be enough as long as Slovenia do not better their result when they face Switzerland.
Switzerland have already qualified in top spot but Gunnarsson can see a chance to claim passage to the World Cup finals, and is ready to take the opportunity.
"We are young and do not scare easily," Gunnarsson told UEFA.com.
"We have already put pressure on ourselves and now we just have to handle it.
"We have Norway on Tuesday, which will be the most important game we have ever played. The Norwegians will not give us anything, like we wouldn't give them anything.
"They have nothing to lose so they might play well, but we just have to think about our game, stay cool and everything will be OK."
Slovenia defender Bojan Jokic, who has returned to his club Villarreal due to injury, knows his side face a difficult task in Bern if they are to claim a play-off place.
"We have our problems, we still have a lot to do in the game and in the physical sense I'm not looking for alibis," he told nzs.si.
"But on a higher level, 90 minutes is 90 minutes, and football is such a beautiful game that anything is possible."
Going into the final group games, Iceland have 16 points and Slovenia 15, with Norway, Albania and Cyprus out of the running.
Slovenia face the tougher test as they will face group winners Switzerland, who will be looking to finish off the qualifying campaign strongly.
"The mix is right, the transition has been successful," Switzerland coach Ottmar Hitzfeld said ahead of the match.
"In the campaign, we have made great progress."
Albania and Cyprus wrap up their campaigns with a dead rubber.
