There are no real words to explain the happiness that surrounds the amazing fact the Icelandic men's national team has qualified for the 2018 World Cup. When we qualified for the Euro Cup we thought we couldn't get higher.
That was the dream and no one had even imagined putting the bar this high. But after Euro our spirits were high and our expectations as well. Now THERE IS NO STOPPING THE ICELANDIC NATIONAL TEAM!

The feeling when Iceland beat Kosovo 2-0 at Laugardalsvöllur was indescribable. This was the first time ever that such small national had qualified for the World Cup breaking the old record by a cool million. Iceland finished 1st in Group 1 which was not an easy group to beat including teams like Turkey, Finland, Kosovo, Ukraine, and Croatia but the Icelandic team knew that this win was needed and was willing and able to do whatever it took.

Many might have first thought about visiting Iceland after noticing Icelanders through the Euro tournament, our victories, and our famous Viking Clap but our captain Aron Einar Gunnarsson lead this breathtaking chant giving even the toughest souls goosebumps down to your toes. This time that chant will be on the biggest stage yet – The World Cup!
