With only 334,000 inhabitants, Iceland is the participant country of the 2018 World Cup with the smallest population but one of those that will fight the most. Being considered the Uruguay of Europe by the strength that characterizes them and the small number of people who live there, the squad led by Heimir Hallgrimson will be one of the surprises of this World Cup. If you are considering betting on this great team, you just need a betting account via agent with the highest stakes and great liquidity.

Since its independence from Denmark in 1918, this will be the first World Cup for the Icelandic National Team. The history in previous qualifiers was the same: again and again having to watch the World Cup on television.

The viking squad sealed their qualification to this competition after being in the first place of their group in the European Qualifiers, where they beat important teams such as Croatia, Turkey and Ukraine. Currently, the “Strákarnir Okkar” are 22nd in the FIFA ranking and will go to Russia to continue to leave their name at the top.

When we talk about Icelandic football, it’s impossible not to name Gylfi Sigurdsson. The Everton midfielder has been for several years the main reference of football in his country. On the other hand, we must not forget the striker Alfred Finnbogason and Albert Gudmundsson, a 20-year-old winger who plays for PSV Eindhoven and is listed as one of the youngsters with the greatest projection of the Dutch team.

The starting XI of Iceland could be: Hamir Halldorson; Birkir Savarsson, Ragnar Sigurdsson, Sverr Ingason, Hordur Magnusson; Aron Gunnarsson, Emil Halfredsson, Johann Berg Gudmundsson, Theodor Bjarnason, Gylfi Sigurdsson and Alfred Finnbogason. And you don’t have to wait too long to see if this the actual squad, because on June 16 they will face Argentina!
