Gudjohnsen

Eidur Gudjohnsen had a brilliant game, Northern Ireland could not handle him, scored a good goal too, he is now Icelands joint top scorer ever with 17 goals

I'm a bit dissapointed that Kristjan Sigurdsson wasn't in the lineups. I know he was included in the squad though, along with Bjarnason and Bjørnsson.

When Gislason get playingtime you would expect such a defensive rock as Kristjan to play, honestly.

Kristjan played leftback? That's.. surprising How did he do? He's an excellent centreback, but was a disaster on the right back for Brann, I can't imagine he's any better on the left back..

Grats on the point though, shame you didn't get all 3

Sweden won 2-1 FT. I am impressed by Iceland's set pieces, though. You exploited our weaknesses in a excellent way; the physical play put us off balance.
