MANCHESTER---When Lars Lager-
back took over as Iceland coach in
2010, he set big targets for a tiny
nation that had never qualified for a
major football tournament.
"Lars told me that the team was
strong enough to qualify for the (2014)
World Cup," said Heimir Hallgrimsson,
who shares coaching duties with Lager-
back. "I thought he was crazy."
That proved just beyond Iceland---
it lost to Croatia in a tight playoff---
but the European Championship will
do just fine as a second prize.
With a population of approximately
320,000, Iceland became the smallest
European country to reach a major
tournament by qualifying for Euro 2016
on Sunday with two games to spare.
"When I started playing football,"
Iceland coach Aron Gunnarsson said.
"I never even dreamed this could hap-
And Iceland has qualified in style,
losing just one of its eight group games
so far and conceding only three goals.
There have been home and away wins
against the Netherlands, which was
third in last year s World Cup.
It didn t really matter that qualifi-
cation was achieved with a 0-0 draw
at home to Kazakhstan on Sunday. It
completed arguably the greatest
achievement in Icelandic sport.
For the experienced Lagerback, it
was just part of the job.
He took his native Sweden to five
straight major tournaments as head
coach, and was also in charge of Nigeria
at the 2010 World Cup. Guiding Iceland
to a European Championship tops the
lot, although he doesn t want to be
regarded as some sort of hero.
"People like (Nelson) Mandela and
Martin Luther King are heroes---I m
just a football coach," the laid-back
However, Lagerback s impact mustn t
be downplayed. When he became
coach, Iceland was ranked No 134. Now
the team is No 23 and on the rise.
The playoff loss to Croatia in 2013
gave Iceland the kind of big-match
experience that has proved significant
in the current qualifying campaign.
There are some interesting back-sto-
ries from within the squad.
Goalkeeper Hannes Halldorsson once
juggled his football career with film-
making. He shot the video for Iceland s
entry to the 2012 Eurovision Song Con-
test and also a video for an airline in
which he cast himself and his Iceland
Then there s Eidur Gudjohnsen, the
36-year-old striker who has been a
beacon for Icelandic football during a
career in which he has played for Euro-
pean giants Chelsea and Barcelona
among other clubs.
Swansea s attacking midfielder, Gylfi
Sigurdsson, is the heartbeat of the team
and probably its most famous player,
especially now that Gudjohnsen is often
consigned to a place on the bench.
But this has been a team effort from
"This is a great group of players and
they fully deserve to go to the Euros,"
Lagerback said. "It s amazing to work
with this team. We are through and
there are still two games left. That s a
With the expansion of the European
Championship to 24 countries, it was
inevitable that some unheralded nations
would be competing in France next
Iceland fits that bracket perfectly.
Previously, the smallest nation to reach
a European Championship finals was
Slovenia, whose population was esti-
mated at about 2 million when it qual-
ified for Euro 2000.
Iceland reaches Euro
2016 for its biggest
