ICE­LAND

Daily Mail - - World Cup 2018 -

THE BOSS HEIMIR HALL­GRIMS­SON

The den­tist who shocked Eng­land has led Ice­land to their first World Cup. Co-man­ager Lars Lager­back left to man­age Nor­way in 2017.

THE STAR GYLFI SIGURDSSON

Play­maker needs to re­cap­ture the form that earned him a £45m move to Everton af­ter a poor first sea­son at Good­i­son.

THE PROSPECT AL­BERT GUDMUNDSSON

Promis­ing PSV winger, 20, who has three goals in his five caps. His great­grand­fa­ther Al­bert was Ice­land’s first pro­fes­sional player — fea­tur­ing twice for Ar­se­nal in 1946.

KEY STRENGTH

The play­ers feed off the en­ergy of their fans and their for­mi­da­ble thun­der­clap in­spires them to an­other level. BIG­GEST WEAK­NESS While they thrived off be­ing an un­known quan­tity at Euro 2016, their lack of qual­ity could see them found out here.
