The Rise of Icelandic Football

On the back of Iceland’s famous victory over England in Euros knocking the three Lions out of the competition, the small but formidable country has now qualified for the 2018 World Cup for the first time in their history.

I spoke to some Icelandic internationals to get their thoughts on this historic landmark for the country. As well as to a Coventry local Jamie Brassington who is currently coaching Knattspyrnufélagið Þróttur football team in Reykjavík, Iceland about how he first got into coaching as well as the progress the country has made in the last few years and what their expectations may be for the upcoming World Cup.
