Iceland becomes the smallest nation ever to qualify for the Football World Cup to be played next year in Russia. Their performance against England was very clearly no fluke! Kudos to the Iceland team!! Applause article

In the beginning there was nothing, which exploded.

Just imagine if Iceland gets to the final and is faced by the German team. Us Brits know what the result will be! It will go to extra time, then a shoot-out and England will lose on penalties! Whistle

You know that time when your dentist says he can't fit you in because he is going to be managing a football team in a tournament abroad...?Whistle


Well done, guys.

Actually, for a team that got to the euros by beating Netherlands, Czech Rep, Turkey, this was an easier group!
(No offence, Finland. There will always be 1912!)
The group had its share of hassle, sanctions and politics but Iceland were consistent enough to make it through.


I understand England are in, but not Wales, Scot. NI and Rep Ire still in playoff contention.
The usual European suspects in , but well done Belgium for bagging a top spot.

Big out is Ukraine, I guess - but as said, they have other things going on, sadly!

Now, time to remind people who Rus land is named after! Whistle
OK, maybe not heading for victory. But hopefully a good time, everyone behaves themselves, the hooligan losers (whether independent or government-backed) don't get to be idiots, and everyone ignores the politicians and leaders telling them to hate each other, and remembers it is a game, and has some some friendly fun.

Sorry, that wasn't supposed to be a sermon! Go sport! Angel

I checked Björk's twitter
to see how excited at the news she was.

Well... it was a different world.
