Iceland the country of … well ice, elves and beautiful landscapes as we know very well from movies, this beautiful country which stormed onto the international platform when they shocked England in the Euro Cup and we were introduced to the Viking Clap (which if you were watching India and Sunil Chhetri, you would know very well) and then went on to qualify as the smallest nation ever for the FIFA world cup 2018 (by population) a dream run for the country where the sun never sets.
However, they go against the Team that has been in Five World Cup Finals, led by arguably the greatest footballer of all time (arguably, Cr7 fans?) Lionel Messi and are out for blood. Still reeling from their second final loss to Germany (the 1990 loss to West Germany remains a very dark story with the controversial penalty) the Argentineans are hungry for a win and as Lionel Messi said: “Argentina’s performance in this world cup depends whether this is my last world cup or not”. It is the metaphysical David vs. Goliath, yet we don’t know who will win, unlike the biblical story.
We know one thing for sure: If you are a Portugal fan coming off high from that epic Hatrick by Ronaldo yesterday then get ready to clap like a Viking and if you are the old school who believes the team that produced the Hand of God shall crush the Strákarnir okkar (Our Boys).
