Iceland tonight qualified for the World Cup, for the first time in the country’s history. They beat Kosovo 2-0 at the national stadium of Laugardalsvöllur to top their group, making them an automatic qualifier for the tournament.

Iceland, pop: 340,000, is the smallest country ever to qualify for the World Cup by around 1m people. The previous smallest country was Trinidad & Tobago, population 1.3m.

On this historic occasion for Iceland, we offered the following statement.

 

Áfram Ísland!
